In the past there was an issue (reported for example on the Japanese Language Meta) where pressing the Enter key to select an IME suggestion would also submit the comment.

The good news is that we believe to have found the proper way to handle this, allowing you to use the Enter key to select your IME suggestion, while also still being able to use Enter to submit the comment if you're not in the middle of composing a word.

This change is now active on all Stack Exchange network sites.

I've written a blog post with the technical details of this change.

    Weird. Your website is blocked by my company's crappy firewall (it's a Sophos box, but seriously, screw those guys). Says it's a "Malicious Site". Sounds like my kinda website, actually. – user1228 Jun 30 '16 at 16:32

    @Won't Thanks for the heads-up. I guess it's forbidden knowledge. Archived it: web.archive.org/web/20160630183843/http://www.stum.de/2016/06/… – Michael Stum Jun 30 '16 at 18:38
  • @MichaelStum It doesn't appear to be in effect on some meta sites (such as Stack Overflow Meta). Was this intentional or were some sites just missed? – The Wandering Coder Aug 17 '16 at 2:36
  • @TheWanderingCoder It works fine on Mac OS X for me. Testing with Win10 next, it seems the Anniversary Update made some changes, not sure if related. What's your OS and Browser, and do you see it on all sites? (The new IME is no longer a site specific option but part of the baseline code, so it should work or not work on all sites) – Michael Stum Aug 17 '16 at 17:59
