After upgrading CKEditor 7.x-1.9 to 7.x-1.12 (using ckeditor_4.0.1_standard) on various sites hosted on different servers the result invariably is a blank text area only when i want to edit a page, article etc that was created with CKEditor 7.x-1.9.
If I press save, all previously saved info is overwritten and lost.
It is however no problem to create new pages with CKEditor 7.x-1.12, all works fine.

Any clues or solutions? (apart of downgrading all sites to 7.x-1.9 again, that's not an option!)

Problem occurs on D7.17, D7.18, IExplorer, Firefox and Chrome alike.

Really hope someone can help, cause on a couple of sites in question there's a lot of activity.

B rgds,

Hi Steffen,
Clever! Problem of empty area solved after de-installing both and reinstalling dev and nightly. Even toolbar (although imperfect) appears in it's complete form. Maybe not an elegant solution but a clever one whilst waiting for corrected version.

After update from 7.x-1.9 to 7.x-1.12 did you run update.php script and clear drupal cache ?
mentioned variable $cookie_domain is in durpal's settings.php file in sites/default directory.

Save your CKeditor profiles again. Just edit, make no changes and save.

For me the problem was an error of the Meta Tags module that was preventing the update.php script to run properly and thus the CKEditor update to run.
I disabled metatag and deleted the module folder then was able to run the CKEditor update, cleared my cache, didn't have to resave profiles, it worked.
