    On chrome/mac (at least), when you use a triple click to select text in a post (which selects an entire paragraph) the 'quote selected text' button pops up.

    However, when clicking the button it throws an error/tutorial popup instead of quoting the text for you if the paragraph in question is the last paragraph of the post. (I assume it's picking up the end-of-post cruft and it's causing issues?)

    This is a known issue. I'll see if it can be fixed because it annoys the heck out of me too

    I think this issue is similar enough to not warrant its own thread?

    I highlight sections while I'm reading to keep track of my position when I scroll. I know I'm crazy, shoot me.

    Anyway, once in a while the "quote selected text" box will pop up, but then not disappear when I de-select. If I highlight somewhere else, it will create a second pop-up but not get rid of the original one. It overlaps the text so you cannot read it! I am on the newest version of Chrome in Windows.

    It also doesn't actually work to click the quote selected text box when multiples are visible.
