6th Sep 07 (14759) release of TMCE won't insert images/links in FF 2.x

Hi. I've just updated to the latest release of TMCE, 14759 dated 6th Sep 07, and many features are fixed - thanks. I notice however that the new insert link and insert image routines are broken in firefox 2.x, although they work OK in IE 6.x. Note that on develop.twiki.org the behaviour is OK, so this may have been a temporarily introduced bug which has been fixed in develop, but I thought you should know about it anyway.

Here's the issue with the latest release of TMCE on TWiki 4.0.5, RH3.0, apache 1.3, FF 2.0:

  • I edit a topic with TMCE.
  • I click on the 'insert image' icon.
  • The 'insert image' dialogue pops up.
  • I paste a valid URL in the 'Image URL' field.
  • This is where is goes wrong...
The image preview never gets updated, and the insert button has doesn't do anything. I can switch between tabs, and the dialogue box responds OK, but clicking on 'Insert' does nothing at all. It's as if the dialogue box can't find the image URL. All I can do is cancel the dialogue box. The behaviour is exactly the same for adding a link ; the 'insert' button seems to have no action attached.

However, if I use IE on my install, everything works OK, and if I use FFox 2.0 on develop.twiki.org, everything is OK.

So this seems to be a bug only affectecting FFox, which is present in 14759, but may be fixed in dev. Sorry if this is useless info, but just in case...

Please check the Tools->Error Console and tell me what it says. This is highly likely to be specific to your environment, so if you could check the apache error log as well that would help.


Hi Crawford. I have tried many times this morning (before updating your latest releases over the weekend), but I'm not able to reproduce this anymore. I sincerely hope I didn't waste any time for you on this, and I apologise if so.

I will close this issue immediately, and put it down to some peculiar state in my browser, or our apache server.
