I recently upgraded to WordPress 3.9.1 and now the "Insert/Edit" link button in the visual editor does not work when adding or editing a post.

There is no error in the javascript console and nothing actually happens when the button is pushed. I have downgraded the site a version and still it does not work.

Does anyone have any ideas of what it can be?

I had the same problem. I solved it by creating the link in a Word Processor document (Pages in my case) and then copy and paste into Wordpress. I had to edit the HTML text to open the webpage up in a separate window.

All working correctly now.
