FCC editor issues

I just came back after about a week to complete some more challenges, but the editor is suddenly all messed up. It doesn’t put the cursor where I click, it randomly skips lines when I use the up and down keys, it randomly skips half of a line when I use left and right, etc.

I’m using Firefox 48.0.2 on a Windows 10 Desktop.

Update: the problem goes away once I change my browser’s zoom level to 90% and back to 100%, but it’s a little annoying and unnecessary to have to do this on every new challenge.

I’m having the same problem in Chrome 53.0.2785.113 on Win 7 Ent. If I click in the editor and start typing, the cursor hops down a line or two which jacks up syntax elsewhere. It’s a small pain right now.

I’m also having the same issue on 53.0.2785.101 m Win 8. Every time I have to press Enter key to locate the cursor and then move it to a proper place.

I’m finding it only starts happening after about 20 lines of code.

I updated this known issue: https://github.com/FreeCodeCamp/FreeCodeCamp/issues/10167

Not sure if it will help.

This is a known issue at: https://github.com/FreeCodeCamp/FreeCodeCamp/issues/7847

It’s difficult to fix because the editor was not created by freeCodeCamp and is maintained by one person. You can read more and suggest workarounds in the issue above.

Hmm, isn’t it slightly disconcerting that FCC uses a 3rd-party addon that is maintained by 1 person for such an integral part of their website?
