Sometimes it seems like the 'save' button gets stuck so the 'publish' button doesn't show. When you refresh the page all changes are lost.

This the error that appears in the Firefox console:

Error: $("Fields_fields") has no properties
Source File: http://localhost/silverstripe-v2.0/sapphire/javascript/FieldEditor.js
Line: 33

does this mean it will only save if you update certain fields e.g content? I've tried updating that, sometimes I just have to refresh the entire page to get it working, but I've noticed that sometimes SS duplicates input boxes. Like the content box is repeated 8 times down the page, which stops anything being able to be saved. I think the two problems are connected

Im working in a new project using SS, i had some troubles with installation because instaler script give me mod_rewrite error that i resolve creating the htaccess manualy and ignoring the error.

But I have a problem with cms the save button works but the publish button never apear. so i have to use /admin/publishall to get page modified published

some light about what is going on?

I get the same problem as Natalie. I'm just working on a local installation before publishing the site live and I get the exact same js error using Firefox.

After a little more testing I figured out that the error only occurs after visiting a UserDefinedForm page. So to get the error I just create a new user defined form and publish it. Once on the user defined form page if I go to any other content page, once I hit the "Save draft" or "Publish" button I get the error.

I can reproduce the error easily now so if you need any further testing let me know.
