TinyMCE not saving content

I have built a Perch site that uses TinyMCE as its content editor (against my advice... grrrr)

One particular template uses blocks and on some pages (when there are two instances of TinyMCE) the content in the second instance does not update. This only occurs in Firefox. It seems to work fine in Chrome.

Blocks template:

    <perch:block type="twocol" label="Two col">
        <perch:template path="content/blocks/2col.html" />
    <perch:block type="text" label="Just text">
        <perch:template path="content/blocks/justtext.html" />
    <perch:block type="image" label="Just image">
        <perch:template path="content/blocks/image_block.html" />
    <perch:block type="image_text" label="Image Text">
        <perch:template path="content/blocks/image_text.html" />
    <perch:block type="image_grid" label="Image Grid">
        <perch:template path="content/blocks/image_grid.html" />
    <perch:block type="sectors" label="Sectors">
        <perch:template path="content/blocks/sectors.html" />
    <perch:block type="map" label="Map">
        <perch:template path="content/blocks/map.html" />

Typical block that displays this issue

<div class="row">
    <div class="col-sm-12">
        <perch:content id="leftcol" type="textarea" label="Content" html="true" editor="tinymce" imagewidth="640" imageheight="480" />

Additionally (may be related), If you drag a block with TinyMCE inside to reorder, the content disappears completely - seems to be the issue mentioned at and if that is of any help.

I never have of these problems using MarkItUp (which is what I use and recommended...again...grrrr)

Many Thanks

It sounds like it could be a Firefox problem if it's working in Chrome. If it's TinyMCE or Firefox I'm not sure how I can help

That's a fair point Drew. I suppose I was wondering if it had any relation to the disappearing content issues (which I think happens in all browsers) referenced above that seems to have cropped up a couple of times on the forums.

I don't believe it's related, no.
