As you see here, the Green Update button in Bottom is not visible here. So we can’t update that page and changes that you made will be unsaved. This issue is quiet simpler. Just make sure that you haven’t any browser extensions enabled like Mozbar, SEO Quake etc. If so, disable them and your button will be back.

If the Problem still exists, these points may help you

  1. Make sure you are using the most updated versions of Elementor, WordPress & your theme.
  2. Deactivate all your plugins besides Elementor (and Elementor Pro). If this solves the problem, gradually activate your plugins one by one, until you spot the problematic plugin.
  3. If you have a caching plugin, make sure you deactivate it, or even better – purge the cache.
  4. Change your WordPress theme to WordPress TwentySixteen (or other default WordPress theme).
