CKEditor & IMCE - IMCE Popup Not Working

Hi guys,
First time poster so excuse if I'm asking a dumb question!
I'm been gradually working away at my own Drupal site in an effort to get to know the system intimately. I was originally using the wysiwyg_image_upload module but that recently became unsupported plus I wasn't too enamoured with it's functionality so I have been trying to switch across to a different way of uploading and inserting images into my content.

In every other project I work on I've been using TinyMCE but from everything I have read there are some big problems trying to get the Wysiwyg project working with TinyMCE (I'm more than happy to be corrected here if I'm wrong).

So anyway I've following the tutorial here () on how to get CKEditor installed and working with IMCE.

Everything seems ok after following the install. When I click on the Insert Image button on the CKEditor toolbar sure enough I have a 'Browse Server' button appear next to the URL field.

When I click on the Browse Server button I can see that a second popup gets launched but I can't view it without using hovering over my Google Chrome icon in the taskbar. It's like it never loads properly. Has anyone seen this behaviour?

There is nothing in my Log Entries to suggest a permissions error or anything like that. I have confirmed that the path it would be trying to open not only exists but has sufficient privileges (I even tried 777 to see if that would change anything).

Any help would be massively appreciated.

PS - Happy to provide more info if anyone needs it.

More Information

Just some more information. I can access and use IMCE using it as a standalone module (eg. It's only once I try to launch it as a popup from the CKEditor popup that nothing seems to happen.

Hope that helps... or at least rules out one possibility!
