Switch the front-end editor loader method

Follow the below steps:

  1. Go to WP Admin.
  2. Go to Elementor > Settings > Advanced.
    Page not found or 404 page error 3
  3. Enable Switch Editor Loader Method

Deactivate ModSecurity

Ask your hosting company to deactivate ModSecurity temporarily. This is to rule out an issue with a rule set via this firewall. If this is the issue, check the ModSecurity logs. This may help your hosting company to solve the issue.

Enable zlib. Output_compression

Your host may need to enable zlib.output_compression module which can compress the data and may help with the loading of the editor when servers have limited resources.

Deactivate plugins

Deactivate all your plugins except Elementor and Elementor Pro, then switch to a default WordPress theme such as Twenty twenty to troubleshoot.
