Can't select text in widgets (8 posts)

    I have the new upgrade. I'm working in my widgets... simple text widgets for example. I did the pre-flight check and all is OK.

    When editing a text widget I can't select the contents... simply move back and forth and delete, but can't highlight text either with ctrl-a or by dragging the mouse over.

    Any ideas please?

    I think I saw this same problem in the last day or two and the person resorted to reuploading the WordPress files.

    Same problem...

    I had the same problem with WordPress.com
    That's why I changed to WordPress.org and now it is doing the same thing.

    I need help.
    I upgraded from 2.2 to 2.3.1 and now the highlight of text in a text widget does not work.
    I can not highlight text in a text widget to copy/cut text.

    Oh MAN!

    AFAIK the only happens in IE. Perhaps until it is sorted out you can use FF.

    Hey, I just found out you can do it in Firefox - it works there.
