Description Sylvain Coucharrière 2006-04-20 14:44:53 UTC
I'm not sure if there is a true correlation between the two (though I do suspect 
there is), but I recently updated my Mozilla Firefox to version, and since 
then, when I edit wikipedia articles, the formatting buttons (bold, italic, links, 
sig ...) have become ineffective, forcing me to use the keyboard manoeuvers 
(inconvenient) ... only the "insert redirect link" button seems unaffected. I don't 
know if that's a bug in the browser, or if the problem is with the wiki... but I'd 
like to know whom to warn so a solution can be worked out.

1) Clear your browser cache.
2) Check your user JS for incorrectly added custom toolbar 
buttons. Remove them or correct their formatting.
3) If on a site other than, check the site's 
custom JS for incorrectly added custom toolbar buttons. 
Remove htem or correct their formatting.

If innerHTML is used to change the buttons, the default can break.
for info and workaround.
