My WordPress Widgets page is not working in my editor

Dec 1, 2013 by SmartHost
Hi all,
I want to edit some links in my sidebar text widget on my WordPress site. The sidebar displays on all my website pages except for the front page. I used pretty permalinks to point my URL to my dev subfolder . I don’t know why but now I cannot use the widgets page in my theme editor. When I try to expand the text box nothing happens and dragging and  dropping doesn’t work. Does anyone has an idea how to fix this?
thanks

Go to your WordPress admin area
Append this  if WP is installed in the root
 yourdomain/widgets.php?widgets-access=on
Append this if WP is installed in a subfolder
yourdomain/wplocation/wp-admin/widgets.php?widgets-access=on
