I made a Github account 3-4 years ago and never used it.
I logged in today, and was prompted to change my password, which I did.
Using the Github web interface:
I created a new repo and made an initial readme.md file.
I edit the file, enter commit message, but no matter what I do, the "Commit" button is grayed out.
I cannot commit any changes.
I do not have protection rules.
I cannot upload files either using web interface.
This seems like such a simple thing. Why isn't it working?.
Thank you for being here, I'd recommend checking the following:
I hope this helps!

I figured it out. I was using Chrome. I tried Mozilla Firefox and it worked. I am using WIndows XP and which only supports and older version of Chrome.
I've the same issue (using XP) but using exactly before mentioned Firefox (ver 52.9.0, last version supporting XP). Additionally I cannot select another Branch anymore. Does Github still have the possibility to test Github Repos using Firefox 52.9.0 under XP? Or do I finally have to upgrade my good old XP to be able to edit on github?
Go to Inspect Element -> Find the button -> Remove the 'disabled' attribute (Note: Will only work, if you are actually allowed to commit; It's a little client side change that is not guaranteed to work.)
Annoying, but web safe. (I use Safari, and the button doesn't work since last month on my Mac)
I know it's been one year, but for those who's still trying to figure out why the button stays disabled, if you're using something like uBlock Origin, you might have the `3rd-party-scripts` disabled. Undoing it made the button come back.
