Edit button missing

I have a Confluence page where the Edit button is missing and I'm unable to edit the page. I've checked the permissions and restrictions and it should be working but it's not. Currently on Confluence version 6.1.0.

What restrictions do you have on the page?  Can you provide a screenshot of the permissions.

Here are the restrictions

Jack if you remove the page restrictions and just set the page to no restrictions does that bring the edit button back?

Strangely the edit button has magically reappeared. Thank you for you help.

Good to hear.

Same problem in Firefox. I opened the page in Chrome and the buttons went back.

Same issue here. Pages that I've created within my own Confluence space intermittently drop the Edit button. Reappears when I change browsers.

What version of confluence are you using?  What browser are you using?  Can you consistently get the issue to occur in a specific browser?

Using Cloud version. Consistently occurs in Chrome. Firefox usually corrects it, but only temporarily.

I would submit a support ticket with Atlassian detailing the issue.  Let them know about the issue and what browsers it is occurring in.  They will then be able to test and verify the issue and can fix it.

Same issue appearing for me as well. I am using Confluence Cloud and edit button along with other options[start/stop watching, share this page with others and ...] on top right of a page were appearing till yesterday. Unable to find it on any of the pages. But edit button is visible in Overview section of the Space but not on any of the pages in that space. I have checked the Permissions and they are fine. I am the creator of the page and edit button should be visible to me atleast. 


I am using Chrome Version 59.0.3071.115 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Changing the browser is not a solution. I will wait for some more time to see if it gets automatically resolved.
