Alternatively, you can upgrade to Confluence 5.1.3 or later. The bug report has the details:

I hope this helps!

Hello Sarah,

Thank you for your fast answer. Unfortunately it doesn't resolve my problem. I'm mostly working in Firefox but I also tried in Internet Explorer, the problem always happens. I use the OnDemand version of Confluence (in french).

Oh dear, that doesn't sound good. The best thing is to contact the Atlassian Support team at

The Confluence plugin editor was disabled and the support restarted it to get it working. It works fine now.

Thanks for your help Sarah.

All the best, Martin
