Has been brought to my attention that when a user right clicks and selects on page edit mode, all of the boxes are greyed out. This happens for me also as an admin user. Is there an option somewhere to turn the buttons on?
Sounds like a permissions issue. Even though you're in the admin group, have you checked that the group actually has the necessary permissions?

Admin group seems to have all the required permissions, ie everything ticked... Is there anywhere where you need to set the access to the quick edit function?
Any chance you are using the old text editor from CMS5? See http://world.episerver.com/Modules/Forum/Pages/thread.aspx?id=50873
