If you're using the vle/xot install Alistair that works in both Chrome and
IE for me.


I do think that something changed in 1.9 in terms of where the pop-up browse
window appears and I mentioned this on the dev list previously but can't
track it down reliably. I'm sure in 1.7 and previous versions that browse
window always appeared on top but since 1.8/1.9 or somewhere between the two
it sometimes appears below the editor window and is easily missed. Not sure
if that's the issue for you but worth a mention.

Can you apparently click it, and then nothing happens, or is the button
itself not responding to the mouse (do you see the mouse over / mouse down
states of the button?)

It works here fine on my xampp install of 1.9. Which install are you using?

Any obvious reasons for the following?


I'm using toolkits version 1.9 I started with Google chrome but when I try
to add an image onto a Media> Graphics and sound page the Import media
button remained obstinately unresponsive. I searched through to check that
it wasn't loading a dialogue box in the background that there was nothing
anywhere on screen or behind screen that I could find.


I published the changes are made so far, close the browser reloaded and try
to add the image again and had exactly the same problem; completely
unresponsive image button. I then moved to Internet Explorer. The import
media button did what it was supposed to but I had a message about the
script making the browser unresponsive. Everything ground to a halt.


It actually very simple stuff I'm trying to do in preparation for the Xerte
Friday session tomorrow. Any hints or tips as to what might be going wrong?
