I thought it was a 'feature' (being able to see a preview of your live site in the admin panel) –  janoChen Jan 29 '11 at 7:12
@janoChen its not a joke, I am facing it, and its not a feature –  ntechi Jan 29 '11 at 7:15
Sounds like it happens on ajax calls, did you cange server? –  Bainternet Jan 29 '11 at 8:15
@בניית אתרים nope, for this website I didn't change anything, everything was fine –  ntechi Jan 29 '11 at 8:44
The obvious thing to try first would be to disable plugins and re-enable one at a time until the problem is reproduced. This is a "must do" procedure for isolating any WordPress problem. –  t31os Jan 29 '11 at 14:44

As t31os said, first thing you should do is disable all plugins, see if wp-admin/post-new.php works fine then, and re-enable them one by one, see which one is causing trouble.

I would start with the plugin to change the admin theme, since this is the closest one to the admin dashboard.

@everyone I figured out the actual reason behind this, sometimes server changes some mod_security.c due to which, this was happening, this solution I found on one of the blog nirajmchauhan.blogspot.com/2011/01/… this really worked –  ntechi Jan 29 '11 at 16:59
Great, thanks for sharing your solution! –  Fernando Briano Jan 29 '11 at 17:05
