Quote button issue

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007fd2a43f4e08>

Since a few days, I cannot use Discourse inline Quote button when I select text spanning over several paragraphs or going through italic, bold, user mention, code, etc.
I also tried with the default skin/theme, same bug.

I use Firefox 78.5.0esr (64 bits) on Debian 10.
I have just tested same issue with Vivaldi 3.4.2066.106 (Stable channel) (64 bits) on Windows 10.
They are the latest versions of both browsers.

The Quote button does appear when I select a few words of plain text only, now.

Have we change anything recently on our Discourse?

I cannot reproduce this bug at meta.discourse.org but they have a more recent beta version.

It happened on other Discourse forums as well and, as they cannot reproduce on meta, they put the blame on non-standard plugins. :thinking:

Please try with your browser if the Quote button appears when you try to quote my post by selecting from “I cannot reproduce this bug at” to “a more recent beta version. It happened”:

Yes, +1
Same behavior on latest Google Chrome (Version 87.0.4280.88 64-Bit) on Windows 10 Pro 20H2, 64bit

Ah - glad it isn’t just me. (Vivaldi user). I had that problem earlier. After reading your post I notice in my example that having the MB shortcut hover text thingy in there blocked the Quote, so did an emoticon, italics or new line. But highlight text without and it was working.

Sure it was working a couple of days ago.

Discourse was upgraded few days ago.
@Freso can you check if this issue relates to any plugins?


I forgot to tell I first noticed the bug on Android Firefox 68.
Android Chrome also has the bug.
