Creating Links in the Message Board doesn't work properly in different browsers.

The following behavior is observed using Chrome or Microsoft Edge browsers:

Issue is not seen in Firefox browser.


Expect to be able to create links in all browsers.


The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Add a Message Board Task Flow to a page in a portal.
  2. View the page and add a post to the message board.
  3. Edit the post.
  4. Try to add a link from a selected text.
    Notice when the link icon is clicked, the text is deselected. So the URL of the link is added after the text.
  5. Add another post to the Message Board.

    About 13+ lines of text.
  6. Edit the new post.
