Until last week, when i logged in as administrator, on the page of nodes,
i could edit blocks by clicking "edit this block" link which appeared in upper right corner of blocks. But now i can't see edit block link, so for every time i want to edit block i go to "/admin/structure/block" which is very bad.

When i check the page source i can see the links like:

<div class="contextual-links-wrapper">
<ul class="contextual-links element-hidden">
<li class="block-configure first last">   
<a href="/admin/structure/block/manage/block/32/configure?  
destination=admin/config/development/performance">Edit block</a></li>

What would be the problem.
How can i solve this?
Can you please help me.

    Did you change your theme ? Is the Contextual Links module still enabled ?

  • @Countzero thank you for your interest. I didn't change the theme. "Contextual Links" is enabled. After your message I disabled it, run a cron then enabled module again, but the result is the same. I can see "contextual-links-wrapper" div class in my nodes' source files. But they are not seen in browser window..

    You mean : the code is in the template but you doesn't make it to the HTML source in the browser ? If true then something's wrong with the template file which is picked up.

  • I didn't check the template files. I can see contextual links in HTML source of page. But i can't see them when i hover on the block.

    Then you probably have a js error somewhere.

Do you have the Theme Developer module enabled? I had the same problem (disappearing contextual links menu for blocks) and disabling the Theme Developer module resolved the issue. Likely something to do with the z-order being utilized by Theme Developer.
