[resolved] Endless prototype.js error in Dashboard (2 posts)

    In Firefox 2, when I try to drag widgets to the sidebar, the hand icon shows up but does not actually drag anything. Meanwhile, my Firebug Javascript debugger goes nuts and racks up thousands of errors. I have taken a screenshot of it in action:


    In Safari, the widget area looks like this:


    and I can drag NOTHING.

    This is obviously a prototype error.

    I also cannot switch between code and visual editors when editing (I can only see the visual editor), and I get the famed "Are you sure you want to navigate away from this page?" popup after I write a post. In Safari, I can actually publish a post, but can't get to the visual mode. Any ideas?

    Figured it out. The Dreamhost one-click install didn't overwrite my previous /js directory, so it was complete with old versions of scriptaculous etc. A dump of the WP 2.2 version of the /js dir into my "upgrade" fixed the problem.
