Slider issues

Anyone else having issues with the slider functions? When I deleted the standard photographs and placed several of my own in as slides, I made a mistake on one of the titles. I clicked on the small icon for that slider and edited the title. I then saved the slider and updated via the check box on the right side of the menu. My changes never took. The slide continued to show the wrong title.

Since then the slider function has been all wonky. I've tried to delete the slide and re-enter it to no avail. Acts almost like a caching issue, but I've cleared cache on browser and elsewhere and still have the same issues.

Any ideas?
I've discovered that if I save the slide 2 or 3 times in a row things seem to take. Definitely shouldn't be the case. Before that discovery I shut down all my Wordpress plugins, checked caching on the server side, and everything else I could think of. The only thing that seemed to work was saving a number of times in a row.

I would like the highlighted section at the bottom of the slider a little shorter. Seems to be too fat. Where in the code do I tweak that?
I am also having problems with my slider. Mostly on the Admin side, not showing the slides in order and other weird behaviors.

Anyhow - you can edit the highlighted section in the editor - edit the stylesheet.css file - scroll down to SLIDER.
I still have not found it. I figured I needed to tweak under the Slider section of the style.css but haven't found the right definition.

What I want to do is narrow the grayed section that contains the slider image title and content. If it was half as tall it could still contain the limited text I have and not obstruct the picture so much.

Anyone have any idea which line I need to edit to accomplish that?
I located it. The index.css file contains the definitions for changing the height of the grayed section. The height in .fp-content-fon controls the width of the grayed area and the height in .fp-content dictates the height of the text.

.fp-content-fon { position: absolute; padding-bottom:0px; height:80px; opacity: 0.5; filter: alpha(opacity = 50); bottom: 30px; right: 520px; left: 30px; background: #444; border:1px solid #aaa; }
.fp-content { position: absolute; height:70px; padding: 5px 20px; bottom: 30px; right: 520px; left: 30px; overflow: hidden; }
