Hyperlink window focus does not get to the hyperlink textbox

Until 1-2 days ago, I could very easily add hyperlinks while typing text - just hitting Ctrl-K and then pasting the text. However, now when I hit Ctrl-K, the focus is not set to the “Paste a URL or type to search topics” textbox, so I need to reach for my mouse and click inside the textbox, which is inconvenient.

Sometimes, when the hyperlink window is opened the first time for a post, the focus is set correctly. But when opening the hyperlink window again, the focus is not set on the textbox.

Browser version: Microsoft Edge, Version 85.0.564.51 (Official build) (64-bit)

Chrome Version 85.0.4183.102 (Official Build) (64-bit) does not seem to have this issue.


Fixed earlier today


Will rollout to your site soon.

This was making me crazy too!


Awesome, thanks a lot!
