Safari: Visual TinyMCE modal dialogs fail (4 posts)

    Hi,

    In Safari, clicking on buttons such as link in the visual editor fails to bring up the dialog correctly. The screen gets a black overlay, but the dialog stays behind it. There is no way to do anything without navigating away from the page and losing your changes. I have to switch to the HTML editor to insert links with the OS dialog because the MCE dialog doesn't work.

    Anyone know how to solve this?

    I'm having the same problem. No idea what it is.

    I usually end up doing "Inspect Element" on the overlay and setting the "display: none" so that I can enter the link.

    From there it lets me apply the link but the link dialog remains.

    I usually click "save" or update to reload the page.

    Dodgy work around I know ... but at least it means you don't lose any content.
