Error in WordPress: can’t edit widget!

Today, I found quite a strange error in WordPress: I can’t edit the widget in my blog! As you might be familiar with the picture on the left; we can put any additional widget (such as a link-of-article or an image) by editing the whatever-written in the ‘Text’ box.

Problem is when I click the ‘Edit’ link; instead of the box is opened / spanned.. the ‘Text’ box is suddenly gone, .. puff, as if I never add the ‘Text’ widget in the first place.

So, then I consult with Mbah Google, and I found this link. It appears that, the error is particularly happened with IE browser, especially when you’re editting the ‘Text’ box. So, the solution is simple .. change the browser into Firefox.

*Well, dude .. you (my colleague) might be wonder as in what reason I use IE, instead of Firefox. Yeah, I love the ‘tab functional’ thingy in Firefox .. but, I don’t know why: the Firefox browser installed on my PC (version 3.0.1) is unstable*

So, now I can edit the widget normally, as I used to do. For you my ‘loyal’ visitor🙂 .. you might notice a slight change in my blog, that is.. Another Me @Friendster located on the right-corner.

Well, then .. I’ll be waiting you there!
