I don't have an exact answer for you without looking specifically at the exact page/site that you're referring to, but my best guess would be that you have a plugin that is directly interacting with TinyMCE (the editor using in WordPress) that is causing the issue. As WordPress has recently made changes to TinyMCE, some plugins could be causing the issue. Try disabling various plugins to see if the issue is resolved.

If you could provide me with the specific site and page that the error appears on, I'll be happy to take a further look for you as well.

it's only in the backend so you wouldn't be able to see it unless you logged in as the admin to my site? the frontend is fine. EDIT - i just checked and now the 3 sites Edit Box is visible. something weird is going on! i didn't change anything and i didn't restart mac or any apps. mac firefox updated a few days ago too. a new problem, just installed a new WP site with Softaculous. every time i edit an existing page and click UPDATE (on the right side blue button), then click VIEW PAGE top right, the page is displayed but i'm kicked out of admin backend, i'm viewing as if i'm not logged in, i have type to get back in.

This culmination of issues appears to be directly related to your browser itself. Try clearing all browser data to see if that resolves the issue.
