Insert button disappeared after Confluence 3.5.13 upgrade

The Insert button in the rich text editor bar disappeared in our instance of Confluence after we upgraded to 3.5.13. On our test instance, a restart and clearing the cache seemed to fix the issue, but this is not working for our production instance.

Any ideas? That little button is really important for our non-wiki markup users.

You could just try disabling and reenabling the TinyMCE Editor Plugin. it might just do the trick :)

Try this:
  1. Browse to Confluence Admin | Configuration | Plugins
  2. Click Show System Plugins
  3. Click on TinyMCE Editor Plugin and look for modules that are disabled. Enabled them. In Confluence 3.5 it says "22 of 22 modules enabled" if all modules are enabled :)

All plugins are enabled (22 of 22). Is there one I should disable and re-enable?

Sigh, I did that and it was unsuccessful.

I'm getting a weird message about our license support expiring yesterday, despite the fact that it is up to date in MyAtlassian, so I'm going to get that resolved and see if I can work on this then, since it says changes to plugins won't register with an expired license.

Alright license has been updated and there is still no change when I disable and enable the TinyMCE Editor. Next step, uninstall and reinstall all system plugins?
