User Role Editor
User Role with manage_options can no longer Manage Options (2 posts)

    About a month ago, we made a new role based on the Editor role, added the manage_options capability, then "Applied to all sites." Now users with that Role can no longer manage options.

    This is on a multisite installation. To test: All plugins have been turned off, except for URE, both on network and single site.

    When attempting to Manage Options (Settings > General) and even Manage Theme Options (edit_theme_options also checked), we get the message, "You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page."

    Users with that Role, previously, were able to do the above.

    Here's a screencapture of the capabilities:

    And they should do.

    I tested on the fresh installed WP 3.6 beta-3 multi-site. Can not repeat your issue. Look short video for the reference:

    May be your theme forces some additional permissions somehow...
