I find sometime closing the box and refreshing the page works, 
also logging out and clearing all browser cache and cookies and retrying.
Sometimes if you are trying to configure a widget in a way its not meant to be configured

eg filters being used incorrectly or incorrect pairing of dimensions/metrics can also give a similar

Nope... tried all that... logged off, clear all the browsing data, even tried open it in different browser... same result...

And as for the configuration - that is the odd thing: I did not configured/changed anything since some time... it was all working fine till yesterday and now it become unusable...

Any ideas?
