Sorry for the long title, but I think it aptly describes the problem.
For an example, on this answer on the PPCG meta, I commented the text:
I made a bunch of edits, feel free to roll back any changes you dislike. For the case of
100,000, should you return
All the numbers are delimited by backticks because I wanted to format them with sans-serif font. This is more commonly done for code in comments.
When I go to edit the comment, I get this text:
I made a bunch of edits, feel free to roll back any changes you dislike. For the case of 100,000100,000100,000, should you return .1M.1M.1M, 0.1M0.1M0.1M, or 100K100K100K?
Even if I resubmit the comment without making any additional edits myself, this new version is what appears in the comment.
I apologize if this is a dupe, but I've searched through as many other questions about editing comments with inline code that I could find and haven't found a report of this particular bug.
Update: I wrote the following comment on this post:
I am on desktop, running Chrome on Linux. Is it possible this is only happening on PPCG? I wonder
if I can reproduce it here
When I edited it, I got:

Update 2: This doesn't seem to occur in Firefox on Linux, and other users aren't able to replicate the problem, so it might be some sort of script running in my Chrome browser.
Update 3: I have managed to solve the issue for myself. If the question no longer belongs on here due to the solution, I am happy to delete it.
