Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

Possible Duplicates:
Bug using quote button in Google Chrome on Windows
Blockquote glitch in editor in Chrome 6 and 7

Enter text, mark it and select Blockquote gives some weird output.

For example:

Hello world

gives this:

Hello world

Hello world> Hello worldHello world

Hello world

It works if there is text after that is already blockquoted (for instance, selecting "For example" above and selecting blockquote works fine).

The browser I am using is Google Chrome 6.0.472.62, haven't tried it on others. Also found this error on other Stack Exchange sites (the ones I tried were Stack Overflow, Meta Stack Overflow, Super User and Meta Super User).

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

@Tobias: yup. duplicate. should I just delete this question? Or.. wait for someone to [closed] it? – Default Sep 21 '10 at 11:09
It's up to you whether you delete now or wait for the close votes. – ChrisF Sep 21 '10 at 11:09
since you didn't stumble upon the other post others might also find your post first, so it may be useful to redirect them – Tobias Kienzler Sep 21 '10 at 11:11
Although, there is an answer that says v6 is stable and works, but I use 6.0.472.62. I don't go for any betas (unless Google pushes it automatically) – Default Sep 21 '10 at 11:12
@Tobias: true. I guess I'll leave it to be closed then :) I added the duplicate to the top of the question. – Default Sep 21 '10 at 11:16
@Michael no need to insert a dupe link, it will happen automatically as soon as 5 votes to close are in – Tobias Kienzler Sep 21 '10 at 11:18
@Michael: you should edit this fact in in your question, since when it's not a beta it is no exact duplicate... but maybe you should also leave a comment @Jeff on the other bug report – Tobias Kienzler Sep 21 '10 at 11:20
One more question then, in the duplicate it says "status-declined" as a tag. Does this mean that it's not being fixed? – Default Sep 21 '10 at 11:20
@Tobias: I thought of it, but I saw that hmemcpy already left a comment that he has a stable version and that the bug remains. Just found out what status-declined meant as well, so I guess it won't be fixed.. :( – Default Sep 21 '10 at 11:22
hm.. I should learn to search first. Found a second dup:… . Jeff also states that it's Googles fault, not his – Default Sep 21 '10 at 11:29
@Michael: not necessarily, now that it's a non-beta issue that might change. Upvote there, leave a comment, involve... – Tobias Kienzler Sep 21 '10 at 11:47
@Michael in fact, that is an even better dupe. Maybe you should flag your report for moderator attention and mention that as dupe-source – Tobias Kienzler Sep 21 '10 at 11:49
