This appears to be a problem on FireFox. Works on Chrome.

Can you give us a little bit more information, right now i have trouble reproducing the issue.
Did you use the Save and add question button, or did you save and added a new question at once.
Are you in Debug mode, or in production mode?
Can you activate js-debug for backend (Global Settings) and post a screenshot of the console?

Hello: I am unable to reproduce the issue! In fact I was able to reproduce the issue once and then it is now consistently working. Appreciate you checking on this. You may close this ticket. Will reopen it with a screen capture if this shows up again.

This issue is back on Group Description is not editable. This is a brand new install. Tried with Mozilla and Internet Explorer and group description is uneditable. In IE, the question description was editable, while in Mozilla even the question description was NOT editable. In Chrome, it works without issues.

Changing the global setting for "Default HTML editor mode" to "HTML Source" or "Popup" makes this visible again. Of course when you click the HTML edit button only get a blank page. So something to do with HTML Editor option.

Can you , on firefox, activate console, on console, check request to see if there are some Content Security Policy or some 404 error

what is your FIrefox version?


2018-05-16 13:57

reporter   ~47649

Firefox version: 59.0.3 (64-bit)

When I click on the Edit button (while in "Default HTML editor mode" to "HTML Source" or "Popup") I get a 404 for URL:

I also see that the said path (admin directory) on the server only has two files: admin.php & index.php. Does it possibly have something to do with URL rewrite? I copied over the default .htaccess on the file system to my Apache configuration.

in your url, the gid is empty.
question is why, and why only you is affected?
could you try to reinstall to see if you still have the problem?
or to install a fresh new limesurvey next to your old installation?

@LouisGac : editing survey-welc : no gid (and qid) : need to be empty. It's not this issue.

Maybe related to 'urlFormat' => 'path', VS 'urlFormat' => 'get', (url_rewriting)

LimeSurvey didn't use always the best way for generating url … "controller/action",[params] but do a lot of "controller/action/param1/1/param2/2"

real question is: how is that only one single user is affected?

if nobody confirm this bug, I'll close it next time I'll check it.
