Home Forums Bug Reports Visual Editor issue with Firefox


Visual Editor issue with Firefox

  • Hi,

    When editing in Firefox, the visual (WYSIWYG) editor custom field appears to be disabled. There’s no way to enter text. Clicking in the field has no effect.

    There’s no problem in Chrome or even Edge.

    Might not be an ACF bug, though, I don’t know.


  • Hi again,

    I should have mentioned that the problem occurs even on a clean WP 5.6 installation using the default theme and with no other plugins installed beside CPT UI and ACF.

  • Well, clearing the Firefox cache has fixed the problem. Don’t ask me why.


  • Hi,

    Actually, clearing the Firefox cache was just a temporary fix. The problem is back today even for WYSIWYG custom fields that worked correctly after the cache clearing I made yesterday.

  • I have the same problem:
    WP 5.6 (clean install or with plugins – doesn’t matter)
    ACF PRO 5.9.4
    FF 85.0 (64 bit) on OSX 10.14.6

    Flushing cache doesn’t work in my case.

  • My guess is that there us a JavaScript error that is preventing the editor from initializing. Are you seeing any errors in console?

  • Hi,

    Not 100% sure but it seems that the problem didn’t occur again since I have installed Advanced Editor Tools (previously TinyMCE Advanced).

    I’ll have a look at the console whenever the problem re-appears.


  • Hello,
    this is console output in page edit with wysiwyg editor custom fields:

    This page uses the non standard property “zoom”. Consider using calc() in the relevant property values, or using “transform” along with “transform-origin: 0 0”. post.php
    JQMIGRATE: Migrate is installed, version 3.3.2 load-scripts.php:5:709
    MouseEvent.mozPressure is deprecated. Use PointerEvent.pressure instead. 2 wp-tinymce.js:3:8856

    Nothing else appears there even during custom fields editing.

  • My guess is that there us a JavaScript error ,

  • I have the same issue. Did anyone workout how this was resolved?
