WP 2.7.1 Visual Editor link adding bug (4 posts)

    When I highlight text and try to convert them into links, the screen goes gray and a dialog box pops up, but the dialog box is also gray, and impossible to interact with; I'm forced to add links by means of manual HTML. But most annoying of all is that the dialog box is impossible to exit out of; hitting escape won't work, and hitting the X for closing the dialog box won't work either. The only way out is to close the window.

    See this for a screenshot of what I'm talking about:

    Deactivate all plugins and see if this resolves the issue.

    I have exactly the same problem. WP 2.7, Safari 4. Deactivating plugins has no effect. Same problem with the add media dialog. Extremely annoying to the point where WP is nearly unusable.

    Upgrading to 2.8.1 fixed it.
