Browser Information

I am using Chrome version 32.0.1700.107 m in Incognito mode.


While trying to edit the last 2 reviews I've had in the Low Quality Posts queue, once I start editing and the cursor was inside of the edit area, I could not get it out.

For example, I would try to click the Edit Summary textbox, yet the cursor remained inside of the edit area. I had to eventually just click Save Edits or some other button to move on.

Possible Insight into the Cause of the Issue

If you look at the [Editing...] button in the screen shot, it's not disabled. When you normally edit that button is disabled.

Reproduced Issue

Here is another one that I ran into.

As you can see, it also has the [Editing...] button enabled. It's disabled until you click inside of the edit area, then it becomes enabled. After that, you can't do anything with the cursor inside of the edit area. You can tab out of it, but you then you can't get back into the edit area. You simply have to cancel out of the entire thing.

  • @LowerClassOverflowian - I've even noticed that sometimes if you use CTRL+V as the first change in the edit, that CTRL+Z stops working. – Code Maverick Feb 13 '14 at 22:35
  • Happened to me a couple of times in IE 10. – michaelb958--GoFundMonica Feb 26 '14 at 21:49
  • Just had this happen to be in Firefox today... – Corley Brigman Mar 10 '14 at 4:28
