Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Here's how I ran into what I think might be a bug:

  1. Began reviewing First Posts via the new review feature on Biblical Hermeneutics.

  2. Started writing a comment on an answer.

  3. Changed my mind and edited it instead.

  4. Decided to also comment to explain my edit. Here's what it looked like:

    Before hovering over the "add comment" link.

  5. Clicked on the "add comment" link. My screen capture utility removed the cursor, so you can mentally add the pointing hand cursor to the image hovering over "add comment":

    While hovering over the "add comment" link.

  6. Nothing happens. No comment box appears, no error, nothing.

What I expected to happen was that a comment box would show up so that I could add a comment. In fact, when I go back to the URL in another tab, that's exactly what I get:

What I hoped would happen.

If it matters, I'm using Google Chrome version m. (Wow, those are some mighty long version numbers. While checking to see which version I have, I see there's another version available. I'll try updating and see if I can reproduce the bug with another post on some site.)

After updating Chrome, I found the same bug on a "Late Answer" review.

I abused one of the answers in my review queue and sure enough, the bug crops up if you do step #2 (start writing a comment), but doesn't show up if you just start editing.

I just reproduced this with Chrome latest. – Lord_Farin Oct 11 '13 at 22:50
Can't you poke a dev now with a sharp stick, Jon? ;) – Shadow Wizard Jun 27 at 5:53
@ShadowWizard: That would be breaking our promise. If this is still a problem (and honestly, I don't even remember writing this question), I'll see who I can ping (softly and gently). – Jon Ericson Jun 27 at 16:11
@JonEricson lol, thanks! – Shadow Wizard Jun 27 at 16:15
