    i installed wordpress and it seems to work... except for the WYSIWYG toolbar for writing new posts in firefox.

    here is a screenshot showing how the toolbar is different... it's missing lots of buttons:


    why is this happening? anyone have any ideas?

    This is happening on my WP too. But not even on IE this bar appears.

    Does anybody know hot to fix this?

    I just got the answer. Here it goes:
    "Please try re-uploading your wp-includes and wp-admin directories. It's possible that all the files didn't make it."

    This worked for me.

    Same here, simply re-uploading the files worked a treat.

    This worked for me for the WP2.0.+ versions. With 2.1 it didn't work. I get the visual rich editor in two of my blogs in the other two however I don't. I checked and double checked if all the files where there and if they had the correct size and they had. So what can be the problem? And how do I solve it?

    Anne-Lise, try dumping your browser cache. In IE, Tools > Internet Options, click on the 'remove temporary internet files' button. In Firefox, Tools > Options > Advanced > Network then the 'clear now' button on the cache line.

    One person who had this problem recently had an ad blocker or some other kind of javascript blocker interfering. The new 2.1 uses a lot of javascript code, so it's recommended that you add your site to any whitelists you may have, or disable those sorts of things in some way.

    It was indeed a 'problem' with Adblock. It turned out I had already switched that plugin off in for the blogs where the wysiwyg editor worked. Thanks.
