Make Link option in WP freezes App (5 posts)

    I recently upgraded to the 2.7.1 WP. In the past, I could highlight a word, click the "link" icon and then make the words a link. Now when I go through the same actions, the screen has a darker gray to it (darkens) and the box to enter the link pops up, but never allowing me to edit. I have to navigate away from the page and return to my post in my drafts. I have tried with a fresh new post, old post, and will post them via HTML code now, but noticed that this no longer works with the latest release.

    Am experiencing the very same problem than Astriker and it's quite annoying. Any chance of knowing what's wrong as I see this remains unresolved?

    Same for me. I'm using a Mac an wondering if it's only a problem for Mac users. Strange that not more people are having the problem or reporting it as it is very annoying. Any solutions out there?

    OK, I've found the problem. It's with Safari and I am using the new Beta version 4. When I access via Firefox (v3.0.8) it all works normally and I can add links.

    As a WP newbie, I had the same issue as Astriker . . . and tpoulos' solution worked for me too. I might add that when I first tried Firefox 3.0.8, I experienced other problems (the whole text block was in HTML) until I changed the preferences to "[√] Enable JavaScript"
