What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question

  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I'm using Chrome 14.0.835.186 on MacOS 10.6.8, and I frequently have trouble editing my posts because the editor, when loading the post content, has a tendency to omit things.

Here is a recent example, from this morning, which actually significantly derailed my answer. This one doesn't seem to happen consistently, though.

1. `http:http` results in ``

Here's another one. Links, all of them, just about every time I can remember:

This is some text and now [this_thing_here][1] is a hyperlink.


Which becomes, upon opening the edit page:

This is some text and now [this_thing_here][1] is a hyperlink.


Notice how the link href get's omitted?

Anyway, has anybody else experienced this problem, or am I the only one?

I will do my best to provide any additional information needed to get this darn issue fixed.

Norepro here. Same Chrome - Win7, though. – squillman Sep 23 '11 at 17:13
Eh, do you have any extensions installed? – Tim Stone Sep 23 '11 at 17:57
Yes, I do. I will do some experimenting with incognito and disabling them, and update my question later. – Adam Eberlin Sep 23 '11 at 19:19

We can't reproduce this. I suggest trying a clean install of a different browser, or disabling all extensions in your Chrome.

The error is being caused by a Chrome extension known as Linkification. Disabling has solved the problem, thanks for the tip. Adding to the extension's configurable blacklist also solved the problem. – Adam Eberlin Sep 25 '11 at 19:01
