Cannot Edit Text Box Widget

I cannot edit the text on my website. The basic text widget, when added to my site in the editor, says "click here to edit text" or something like that, and I click and I click and I click, but I gain no ability to change the text. I tried typing randomly after clicking on it, and still no luck. I tried to see if the problem laid in the page itself and I just had to go to a different page, but the problem persisted across all my websites across all their pages.

Hello Casey,

This suggests a browser issue. The first thing to try is to clear your browser cache. If this still doesn't allow editing then I would change to another browser, Chrome and FireFox being the most recommended for Yola although IE and Safari are also on the list but may have problems on some applications.

If you can get into your pages then it doesn't sound like your Flash and Java but a good practice to routinely update these two plugins.

Finally and I think this is remote if it crosses sites, that if you have copied and pasted RTF text from something like Word or similar, this can have effects on page or on the affected site. If this is the case then please remove and affected text or third party widgets.

Ah, I am indeed using chrome, but It seems I have found the solution through running it in Incognito mode. Must be some extensions I'm running that's causing the problem. Thanks anyways!

Great sleuthing.
If you feel like doing this you could start a thread and list the extensions you've shown as causing problems. This may be a good resource for users.
