Over the last week or so, I've had trouble putting clickable links in my posts.  I click on the "Insert Hyperlink" button and the window comes up.  I enter the link, removing the http:// and click the preview button as directed.  However, once the web site loads, the "OK" button goes away.  This is the button you're supposed to click to embed the link in the post.  Without it there, you can't get the link to be clickable in the post, so I've ended up just pasting the link, but that makes people have to copy and paste it in to their browser.
 
Any ideas?

I just got good at this myself with my phone..I don't preview the post though..if its messed up I go in and change it..the link with the paper clip is the one I have been using..first type in the words you want then right click paste into the next window and hit ok..works everytime for me..at least mobile it does..as it may be different for a home computer ..

This is a test.
http://www.C3VR.com

What browser are you using? (and what version?)

I just tried it two ways and both worked:
1. I typed the address into the message box, highlighted the text in the message box, clicked the Insert Hyperlink button, clicked the preview button on the insert hyperlink box and the OK button was still enabled, so I clicked it and the message was updated.
2. I put my cursor in the message box where I wanted to insert a link, I clicked the Insert Hyperlink button, typed in an address (without the http://) clicked the preview button on the insert hyperlink box and the OK button was still enabled, so I clicked it and the message was updated.

I'm thinking it is a browser issue.
I just did what you said using Chrome...
I typed in a link

It could be the browser.  My laptop that I'm using has IE8.  I think I may have IE9 at home.  I also have Firefox on the laptop, so if I have the problem again, maybe I'll try that.
 
Thanks
