Markup appearing in posted comments

I am having a weird issue with display of comments, where I can see the markup on comments other users have poseted. I'm in Firefox 73 (32-bit ABrowser variant), on Ubuntu 16.04 (Trisquel 8 distribution). Add-ons:
* NoScript 11.0.23rc1
* uBlockOrigin 1.25.2

Is anyone else seeing this?

Uh oh! Can you email me a link to a page (and even a screenshot) where this is happening for you, @Danyl Strype?

Happy to, but now that I'm hunting the Snark, it seems to have swiftly and silently vanished away 馃槅 If I meet with it again, I'll be sure to snap a shot of it for you and post it here with a link.

It's not exactly the issue I posted about, but it could be related. See the weird symbol before "insert social unit here" in my comment. It was meant to be an "[". This also could be why markdown links aren't working for me, as mentioned in my recent email.

BTW finally had a reason to try out the drag-and-drop for attachments. It really does work well :)

Here's another example from this thread: https://www.loomio.org/d/r7T9o6b2/fedwiki

I tried to do a link using markdown, but go that weird symbol instead of "[" again.

This screenshot shows an example of the original problem.

That screenshot is of the Loomio angular client, which is now no longer served or supported.. if that is a current screenshot, then try a hard refresh of the page. It should not come back.

I thought we were addressing that funny character before blue links in the other screenshots.

Yes, it was. Hard refresh seems to have worked, thanks. If I see that issue again, I'll know what to do :) With that mystery solved, now we can focus on this:

that funny character before blue links in the other screenshots.

I've had no luck reproducing that.. it's a broken image symbol eh? Is it possible there was a markdown image syntax involved?

DS

Danyl Strype Mon 13 Apr

Yes, it appears to be a broken image symbol. If I right-click on one, I get the image menu ("reload image" etc).

Is it possible there was a markdown image syntax involved?

Maybe. It seems to crop up any place a "[" ought to be. But strangely, it doesn't affect "]".

Doe it happen in other browsers, or when you disable your plugins?

I see the following, which looks like markdown written in a comment that thinks it is html formatted:

I think the broken image is a browser extension based preview function or something

I tried disabling all plugins and opening a new private window. Still seeing it. The only other browsers I have are IceCat, which doesn't seem to work with Loomio at all, and Netsurf, which doesn't support JS ;)
