Working with Templates in Confluence using Google Chrome 39.0.2171.95m (current) on Windows, attempting to add a new variable will not function and no variable is added. See the attached images for the difference in functionality in the editor when using either Firefox or Chrome:

Firefox (adds new variables)Chrome (will not add new variables)


WebDeveloper does show some information about deprecated functionality inside of Chrome:


New variables are added when using either Firefox, Internet Explorer or Safari for Windows, but not in Google Chrome 39.0.2171.95m. Existing variables that have been created can be added in Chrome, but new variables can not be added at present.
