We've been trying to point you to the fact that this ain't a reproducible pfSense issue for anyone but you. Perhaps, reinstall your broken workstation instead.

See suggestion right above. This issue doesn't reproduce anywhere but on your haunted premisses.

Ok, seems there's an issue with your browsers then. Try clearing all cache, all cookies, disable all plugins/extensions.

Good advice. Incognito mode tab in Chrome/similar in other browsers that doesn't load any extensions, and doesn't use your cache a good option.

It could be something on the system as a whole that is affecting web traffic (e.g. client AV, local ad filtering software/proxy, etc) -- I think we've all pretty effectively eliminated the firewall as a possible cause unless it's something that was done to the firewall that wasn't a part of the normal base system.

i believe its something to do with the java script on the edit file page coz same system and browser i boot a fresh 2.2.4 and it works and then try on a fresh 2.2.5 it works only for some files that too outside the www folder.

one other thing i noticed today is suppose i goto edit file and edit some file and being on same page edit some other file that too will edit but then on the 3rd try it wont, so its like the first 2 files i edit it works and then then any 3rd file and it doesnt

That was properly broken code in the bootstrap conversion - the Save button was there but did nothing for any file.
As the Greek philosopher Isosceles used to say, "There are 3 sides to every triangle."

Yes, that was a bootstrap issue which only impacted 2.3.
