I cannot edit a comment twice without reloading the page. Steps to reproduce:

  1. Post a comment
  2. Click "edit", make a change, save.
  3. Click "edit" again.

Expected result: The edit box appears to edit the comment

Actual result: Nothing happens at all.

I'm using Safari Version 5.1 (7534.48.3) on Mac OS X 10.7; I have not yet tested other browsers.

    This happens only on meta. I cannot reproduce it on Stack Overflow or the SE sites (checked on 2 sites). Oct 19, 2011 at 21:53

Totally my fault. When moving over the refactored comment JavaScript from my little sandbox into the main JS files, I missed an important line. This caused some operations (including "add a textarea for editing") to happen on old DOM elements that aren't in the document anymore.

So somewhere in the mind of your browser, the edit box was actually there. Not that that's helpful.

Fixed now, thanks.
