How to prevent wrong edit window appearing RRS feed

  • Question

  • About half the times that I try to Reply to a post the edit window that appears is a full page window with no edit options that expects me to use HTML.  If I simply type my answer line breaks are ignored, and there is no code window option.    If I enter my response and then try to edit it I have to use the Edit function many times before I finally get the correct window - the inline one with the formatting options and the code window button.

    What do I need to do to ensure that the correct edit window appears when I select to Reply to a post?

  • I've seen this issue and could be caused by:

    1) You're clicking on reply while the page is still loading. The editor you see (should see) is client side javascript. If the files haven't loaded in the page then you'll get directed to a different page where you can only submit raw text.

    2) Add "Microsft.com" domain in your trusted sites (browser settings)
