    TinyMCE editor icons are missing in the visual mode. I am using WP v2.9.2.

    Any advice on how to fix the problem will be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!

    Have you tried:

    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem? If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    – switching to the default theme to rule out any theme-specific problems?

    Hey There,

    I experienced this problem when I updated a site from 2.6 to 3.0. The following things did not help:
    – deactivating all plugins
    – switching to the default theme
    – upgrading to 3.0.1
    – messing around with tiny_mce_gz.anything
    – turning off compression

    What finally solved the problem:
    – Downloading a fresh copy of the entire wordpress file for 3.0.1 to my desktop and copying the tinymce folder from the freshly downloaded version of wordpress to /public_html/wp-includes/js/ on my site. Apparently, we had an /tinymce file, and overwriting it with a fresh version seemed to do the trick. If you’re still running 2.9.2, you might download the old file for safekeeping, then try uploading the /tinymce file from 3.0.1, just to see what happens. If worst comes to worst, you can just re-overwrite the new file with your copy of the old one.

    Hope that helps.
