  • You can stll submit with Ctrl+Enter
  • Only the comment you cancelled on is affected, the reply buttons for other comments work fine

This is caused by 'change' ); in ReplyWidgetPlain#teardown and ReplyWidgetVisual#teardown. @Esanders I am not sure what this was for. Is it supposed to only remove the onFirstTransaction handler?
