Comment (by gebintit):

 I am not an expert, but perhaps this problem is similar to a problem some
 people had on some platforms with WP2.5.1 when they tried to insert media
 (no problems with the upload). Only a white box appeared. This was (in my
 case) also linked with an object-not-found error-message with IE7. I found
 a fix for that problem in a german forum. It's a change in the file /wp-
 admin/js/media-upload.js . Here is the code (the old values are commented

 /* var win = window.opener ? window.opener : window.dialogArguments; if (
 !win ) win = top; */ var win = parent;
 To be honest, I don't know why this patch helped to fix my problem, but
 now it works!
 Perhaps this is also a solution for this ticket?
