    For the question, Make sure you have added this to your trusted site in IE also Try to reset the IE settings to its default. Open the internet explorer - Tools - Internet options - Advanced Tab - RESET.

  • OK, I've added my site to IE's truested site and now I am able to click on 'Site Actions' and other menu options.  But, I am not seeing an Edit option in 'Site Actions' menu; it shows 'Create' and 'Site Settings' only.
