I am trying to save data in the default text widget. But when I click save, all the data are not saving and the field becomes empty. It happens when I edit in title field or text field.

enter image description here

As I new to WordPress, I don't know the solution. I haven't installed any cache plugins. I haven't done any changes in functions.php or anywhere.

you can try with this.

Step 1:

Go to Appearence --> Widgets

Step 2:

Then at the top right of the screen you should see a tab that says Screen Options. Click on that, then a link will appear in the top left of your screen that says ‘Enable Accessibility Mode’ and click on that and give it a try.

i hope is useful

This is an old question but recently I had a similar problem (WordPress 5.3) and the solution was to enable Accessibility Mode (top-right corner).
