this was a recent problem that seemed to pop up out of the blue.
when i add an image to a post, i like to take advantage of the custom thumbnail feature of the recently updated media editor. i've been trucking along, uploading files, making new thumbnails in the image editor, embedding into posts... then all of a sudden the preview no longer showed the image.
here's a screen shot of essentially what is happening:
as you can see, the image that you edit on the left is missing and i can no longer take advantage of the editing features. i decided to get a screen shot of an file i already successfully uploaded and edit, though it is not working for all files, recently uploaded or not. all other functions of the media library are working fine.
i am using vr 2.9.2, firefox 3.6.3 (though it also is broken in other browsers like opera and chrome,) with updated plug ins etc. i looked through the sticky article about the editor though nothing seemed to work. the fact that it literally worked one day, then stopped working the next with no changes to any of the settings in between is what baffles me.
does anyone have any suggestions/solutions?
