From what I've read, this is the proper place for this thing. I first thought tweeting you would get an answer, but I guess not.
The easiest way to reproduce the problem:
- Open up Chrome
- Add a snippet to an answer/question
- Note how slow it is to open the code editor dialog
- Run your snippet. See how clicking the button takes a couple of seconds to be even picked up and processed.
- Save the snippet to your post. Note how long/glitchy it is as it's saving it and the closing of the editor.
I can reproduce this on three different computers (all macs). This is also not a network issue as all other pages and features within Stack Overflow perform as expected. Not to mention, I can reproduce this at work and at home on a consistent basis
Appears to work fine with Firefox, but it's unusable in Chrome. Seems like it's been this way for awhile. I have a video/GIF demonstrating the issue, but it's too big to be uploaded here.
