I apologize if this is the wrong section and if it is, please move it to the correct location. Anyway, I am working with WHMCS billing software on my LAMP setup and I have run into an issue with their TinyMCE text editor. I submitted a ticket to them and they say it's not on their end and couldn't reproduce the error, so I need to figure it out myself since I am my own server administrator.

The issue I am having is the editor is not allowing me to view what's inside the frame. The error I am getting in the Chrome Dev Tools is:
Refused to display 'http://example.com/clients/assets/js/tiny_mce/themes/advanced/source_editor.htm' in a frame because it set 'X-Frame-Options' to 'deny'.

I did have at one point in my httpd.conf file Header always append X-Frame-Options SAMEORIGIN enabled but since I noticed this error, I removed that line completely and still receiving this error. At this point, I'm not too sure what to do or where to go to find out what's causing this. The only thing I can think of is my Google Chrome extension "uBlock Origin" which is very strict on blocking certain things on web pages.

Does anyone know where I can begin to look or what may be causing this?

The Network tab in Chrome Developer Tools should tell you which HTTP Response headers you are actually receiving from that request.
