Edit screen is blank

Hey guys!


Whenever I edit any page, the edit area of the screen is blank (I still can see the controls for the editor, just no content), and I get this error in the console:


Bootstrap:initialise: No settings found. Has preInitialise been called?


I can get around this by clicking shift+edit, which pops the edit screen in a new window. Works, but very annoying.


I've tried the following:

-disabling all addons via safe mode

-firefox (initial tests were all on Chrome) to ensure no browser add-ons were hosing things up


My setup includes:

nginx+ssl forwarding to confluence on port 8443+ssl

scroll viewport for un-authenticated users


Any suggestions for how to get around this?

This widget could not be displayed.

OK, found my own error. JS failures in the global section can apparently blow up the edit, so clearing any custom JS helps. This includes updates to "shared" JS files (stuff hosted on jquery cdn, etc), so watch out for that.
