My Quick Edit link is not showing the options when I try to edit in the posts and pages.  I have even tried disabling plugins.   Any ideas on what to try and look for to see what might be breaking the javascript that allows it to open.  I am not seeing any "odd" errors in Firebug either.

when you say you 'not showing the options' in quick edit?
when you list the pages on your system and you click 'quick edit'
 it should show just things like the title, slug date, parent, order, temple, status,etc.. you can't edit the body of the page in quick edit.

or do you mean something else?  there are screen options at the top of the page which appear when you click on the top link /screen options'

I mean, I see the link on the index of posts, I want to do a quick edit to change something so I click the link to Quick Edit, but it doesn't do anything.  Nothing expands to show me the options.  It's as if the javascript is broken and won't open up the options.

So you already disabled plugins and that didn't work?  Did you also try to switch to a different theme?
