When trying to edit a question, I noticed that I have to edit the body area firstly, and only secondly the title area. If I try to do otherwise, the body area turns blank and I can't see the words or edit anything.

I use Chromium Version 65.0.3325.181 (Official Build) Built on Ubuntu, running on Ubuntu 14.04 (64-bit). The only extension I installed is Grammarly.

  • Can’t reproduce on Lubuntu 18.04 running Vivaldi 1.15.1147.64.

  • Also cannot reproduce - latest Chrome (68.0.3440.84 Official) and Firefox Quantum (62.0b5) from the repos in 16.04 both work as expected.

  • Note that the version of Chromium you're using is several versions behind compared to the versions in Xenial or Bionic. Can you attempt to use another browser to see if you can replicate the issue, such as Firefox?

  • Also no-repro on Chromium Browser from the 16.04 repositories (version 68.0.3440.75 Official)

This is a bug with the Grammarly extension. It's not a problem with the Stack Exchange editor.

I've notified Grammarly about this issue some time ago, and they seem to be aware of it. For now, as a quick fix, you can temporarily disable the extension on Ask Ubuntu when this issue occurs.

  • Oh! That's interesting! Thank you! I hope this bug will be fixed soon. Meanwhile, I'll use your method. Regards! Aug 16, 2018 at 13:02
