    BTW it works with chrome also.But for that you need to change a line in wysiwyg.js file.
    1. Search the following code and replace it by the given one.
    isBrowserCompatible: function() {
    // Validate browser and compatiblity
    //if ((navigator.userAgent.indexOf(‘Safari’) != -1 ) || !document.getElementById || !document.designMode){
    if (!document.getElementById || !document.designMode){
    //no designMode (Safari lies)
    return false;
    return true;
