Welcome @Dragi and thanke for your report.

This issue may depend on a change in WordPress 5.5 related to the jQuery library. Are you seeing any JavaScript errors in your browser console?

If so you might need to check the information on this support topic under the section "jQuery Migrate is disabled by default":

If that is the case, it means one or more of your plugins or the active theme are using JavaScript code that is incompatible with the jQuery change in WordPress. Ideally, these plugins (or the theme) should update their code. If no update is available at this time, there is a "jQuery Migrate Helper" plugin available on the support topic, please see the instructions there. If that solves the issues you're experiencing, please report back. That would be much appreciated so that issues triggered by this change can be better tracked :)

More technical info about the jQuery change:

Thank you so much for your feedback. At this time I did downgrade to 5.4.2 until the plugins or themes do their updates. Once I update again to 5.5 and the issue continue will follow your instructions for "jQuery Migrate helper" plugin.
Thanks again

Just to clarify, if the Enable jQuery Migrate Helper plugin is active and your site is upgraded to 5.5, the experience should be identical to 5.4 (except for any added features or improvements of course).

The benefit of running the plugin and the most recent version of WordPress is that it will display the JavaScript warnings to administrators and help you to determine which plugins have compatibility issues. Users reporting the issues to plugin and theme authors is an important part of encouraging developers to update their code.

I am going to close this issue out as I'm fairly confident that this is the reason for the issues you were experiencing. And until you decide to update to 5.5 (it is your right as a site owner to wait!), there's no further debugging that can happen here.
