[What to Do] Text Disappears from WordPress Text Box in Single Post

This one goes for all the webmasters out there and especially for those who are using the WordPress as their blogging platform. WordPress is used by most people to power their blog and I am also using the same for mine.

I have been using it for a long time now and never came across this weird issue but it was about 2 weeks back when I started seeing this issue. Whenever I open a post for editing or a draft for updating, I don’t see any text in the text box. The text seems to be disappeared from the text box while the Title of the post was still there.

I, at first instance, thought that my text has been lost but when I clicked in the text box and selected all of the area I was surprised to see the text present there (as shown). Now I wasn’t able to update the text due to which it wasn’t possible for me to update the saved drafts or posts too.

Now I started finding a solution for this problem but all I realized was that I was Chrome browser for post update (or sometimes Firefox) and the problem was there. If you try this Internet Explorer, believe me, you won’t see this problem.

I am still not sure if the problem is with my WordPress version (as it was working fine earlier) or with the browsers Chrome or Firefox (have it updated in the system) but for now, I just wanted to let you people know that if you are also facing the same issue, then you don’t need to stop your blogging. Just use IE for this purpose for the time being until there is some legitimate solution to this problem.

Well there is one thing for sure; this issue has made me started using the IE browser, if not for browsing or surfing. Do post back if you have some solutions to this issue.
