Can't reproduce, anyone else?

Tricky to reproduce - the issue shows up sporadically. Hmm...(sorry). Most often it happened the Mention box - all kinds of manifestation.

There was also: Error: Offset could not be translated to a DOM element and offset: 0

'Error: Offset could not ...' shows up when

  1. Reply to a post with a comment
  2. Click on Mention icon - and then click to the place where the box points to. The red outline becomes thin(?).
  3. Double click - the Error is displayed.
