Bug using quote button in Google Chrome on Windows

Using Google Chrome (haven't tested in other browsers), the Blockquote feature on the editor seems to duplicate text and do all sorts of other wackiness.

For example:


123> 123123

Is what I get when I type 123, highlight it, and click the blockquote button.

I also get this at the end of the post:


  • No repro in Chrome 5.0 (win), are you sure those are the exact repro steps?

  • I bet you're using a beta browser, aren't you? We don't support beta browsers.. Aug 13, 2010 at 9:20
  • Totally forgot I signed up for beta builds or else I'd have checked first. This is the very first problem I've had with them. Props to Google I suppose.

I had this same problem yesterday (with blockquotes, bullet points, etc.) while using Chrome 6, which is in beta. As Jeff stated above, beta browsers aren't officially supported.

Other than that, it works in Chrome 5!
