2.8: WYSIWYG editor not working in Firefox 3.0.1 (34 posts)

    sigh. did the delete/reinstall and it worked. was a traumatic experience for me though, cos i deleted wp-content out of sheer noobness, and then o my sheer horror i found that the wordpress-upgrade-plugin-supplied backup folders dont backup wp-content for some weird reason. some files lost but wth.

    i know how n00b i sound, but seriously before this i did not have to mess around with wp-admin and wp-includes

    wp 2.8 is an improvement over 2.7, but damn the upgrade procedure was a serious, serious setback over previous ones.

    I just replaced the includes folder and it fixed everything.

    Nope, I've tried everything above and none of the solutions are working. Updated, manually reupdated (with plugins uninstalled of course), but still no result at all. Luckly, I've been using Windows LIve Writer for a while and fortunatly the plugins are still in order.
    Hopefully, someone will release an update which should fix this annoying bug.
    Too bad I have updated without a former test (local platform or something like that). Thus, I will never do that again :D

    Here is the solution to it.


    Actually WordPress auto-upgrade just missed out the wp-tinymce.js.gz file under "wp-includes\js\tinymce" and it has caused all the problem.
