When trying to use bold or italic text in the text editor the system stalls and it is impossible to save.
I have deleted the gz file but it does not change anything.

Does anybody have an Idea?

    I have tried to delete the gz file a few times and also tried this in relation to different browsers.
    Both Safari and Firefox but it still impossible to save with Bold text.

    You have enabled PHP suhosin extension on your server which blocks posting HTML code.

    Ask your hosting provider to remove PHP suhosin extension from your websites configuration, or at least configure to disable it form engine part here -

    Another solution is to host your website on our servers, read more about benefits here:

    Good luck

    Thank you for your support in this issue it was not suhosin but a firewall that caused this. Now its working!

    Below the explanation from my host:

    That's good to hear! I'm just sorry for any trouble that it caused for you. It's similar, in that both are modules to aid in security, but they are not related.

    Suhosin sets limits on the data that can be input and output via PHP as well as blocks certain PHP functions that are generally not required on a shared hosting platform.

    mod_security on the other hand is a Web Application Firewall. Using regex matches amongst other things, it scans all web requests and blocks them if the request matches pre-defined rules. This is great for blocking SQL injections and preventing a lot security issues in out of date/unpatched software, however, sometimes it can throw up false positives and block legitimate requests due to the way that it matches, which is what was happening in this case.

    I have disabled the rules that were causing you a problem, so that should be the end of that. However if you do have any more issues, or would rather have mod_security turned off all together, just let me know.
