Can't type in redactor box within content block edit mode

I'm in the process of making a new theme from a html file.

I've followed the guide on the docs and I have 1 area with a content text block in it.

The issue I'm having is I can't get a text cursor to appear in the redactor box, however if I go into the inspector on Google Chrome one will appear and then I am able to type.

There is one warning in the console which is below not sure if its related?
"Synchronous XMLHttpRequest on the main thread is deprecated because of its detrimental effects to the end user's experience. For more help, check"...

Does anyone know what could cause this?

Hi wilkinsocks,

Are you working on converting an existing html theme to a Concrete5 theme?

If so does this theme depend on certain jquery libraries or have existing code that may either conflict with C5 or be calling on a library that conflicts with C5.

If it does I would check to make sure you are not including any unnecessary or duplicate jquery libraries as this can cause some strange occurrences.

Also, I came across this thread on stack overflow that may help (?)

Might be worth a look?
