I'd suggest making sure you are really clicking on "Edit" and not actually clicking the left edge of "Permalink" (which is right next to it.) "Edit" and "Permalink" are two different things. Clicking Permalink can give the appearance of nothing happening, since all it does it is slightly change the url in the browser to refer to the post specifically, so it's not all that noticeable if it's not what you are intending.

Also, by any chance might you be doing this with posts in Locked/Closed threads when trying to Edit? Edit might not work there.

Pardon my intrusion but I find it ironic and entertaining how you edited your post.
