I have a weird problem happening with regards to editing pages.
If I log in as an administrator, i don't get offered the editing options. The top control panel appears, but none of the little arrows with the edit commands on the individual containers, or the dotted lines defining the zones.
The really peculiar thing is that sometimes, the first time i come to the website in a session, it works. But if i log out and log in again it ceases to work?!!!!
I've since owrked out that if i log in on another PC it all works fine... could there be a browser setting gone awry on my main development box?

Maybe it is some kinds of session cookie issue. I am guessing here, but if you say on one box you try to log off and then log back on with the same account and the behavior is different then that cookies is one possibility.
If you log off, close all your IE windows then launch another IE and log back on does it work correctly or not? Does some time period have to pass before it presents the correct controls?
you may want to compare your cookie settings on the box that does work right with the one where it does not. Maybe look at the folder rights on your cookie folder in your profile

Thanks for the feedback.
The problem seems to have cleared itself up. I removed all cookies and restarted IE. All fine now... bit of a weird one that.
