Problem with Rearranging page elements(bx error)

I have been following Blogger Help Forum and found that,there are many user who has problems with rearranging page elements from one position to another(drag and drop).
Here i will try to cover all the points related to Rearranging Page Element And BX errors  and will keep this tutorial simple and as explanatory as possible if you still have any problem you can reply using the below comment system.

Gadgets = =Page Elements = =Widgets

1. Logout amd Login again and see if problem persist.

2. Try Clearing Cache of your browser - This might work because most of the time these problems are browser specific.

3.Try using another web browser such as Google Chrome and see whether problem still exist .If yes then we can come to more advanced solutions.

4. Two temporary solutions that will let you arrange your page elements.
a)Changing  Gadget position  by editing template code.
First and always, backup the template. Now, since you are in the Layout - "Edit HTML" wizard, look in the "Edit Template" window.
Do not Click on expand widget template as it makes your work more difficult .

Use your browser search to find div element for your sidebar which looks like <div id='sidebar-wrapper'>

Here is an example:

<div id='sidebar-wrapper'>
        <b:section class='sidebar' id='sidebar' preferred='yes'>
<b:widget id='LinkList3' locked='false' title='' type='LinkList'/>
<b:widget id='HTML12' locked='false' title='Search Me' type='HTML'/>
<b:widget id='HTML11' locked='false' title='Translate Me' type='HTML'/>
<b:widget id='Followers1' locked='false' title='Follow Me' type='Followers'/>
<b:widget id='HTML9' locked='false' title='Subscribe To Me ' type='HTML'/>

Now i have to rearrange elements -I want Subscribe To Me gadget at the top which is the bottom most gadget so now my code will be.

<div id='sidebar-wrapper'>
        <b:section class='sidebar' id='sidebar' preferred='yes'>
<b:widget id='HTML9' locked='false' title='Subscribe To Me ' type='HTML'/>
<b:widget id='LinkList3' locked='false' title='' type='LinkList'/>
<b:widget id='HTML12' locked='false' title='Search Me' type='HTML'/>
<b:widget id='HTML11' locked='false' title='Translate Me' type='HTML'/>
<b:widget id='Followers1' locked='false' title='Follow Me' type='Followers'/>
 Click   Save  And view your blog.
Remember we already had a backup of template so that we can revert back if something goes wrong during the tutorial.

b)Try Dragging page elements from sidebar and drop on other places like in footer ,above post area or below post area it works for some of the problems.
If you can do this then your problem is solved.Remove all Gadgets from the sidebar.So now your sidebar is empty.Start dropping elements back to sidebar in such a way that your bottom most widget if placed first and top most widget is placed last(Like a stack of books).
