this is a known issue, either use a different browser or install a different Editor (we always use free CKEditor, available for download from

Sebastian is right, and I support the recommendation for the CK Editor provider - you'll be happy with this one.

But: I would replace the "either ... or"-construct by an "and". IE 8 is an old browser, you should upgrade anyway.

Just reported what I guess is the same error. Why bother shipping with the default editor if you always recommend changing to another one?

Cheers, Rob.

I don't know if CKEditor has fixed this problem or not...but the reason that I stopped using CK editor is that if you only had a login for a child portal (and not the parent), trying to use the Image/File/Link Manager tools in CK editor would log you out (they were trying to authenticate you at the parent portal). If you created a DNS entry for the portal (effectively accessing it as a parent portal instead of child portal), it worked fine.
