editting a post, shown in HTML fails

I try to exit a recent post.

First, it's shown as HTML which is strange, I just entered the text as MArkdown. I expect the same format when editing.

After that, I try to submit some simple changes but these are rejected:

You don't have permission to access "http://docs.microsoft.com/answers/answers/49313/edit.html" on this server.
Reference #18.2fa40517.1595197072.2b8b1811


What is happening?

Hi,

This is known bug which I reported long time ago.

In the meantime, I wrote a small extension to fix the bug. If you are using chrome then you can use this:

https://github.com/pituach/RonenArielyQaN/tree/master/BUG-EditorShowHTML

Once you install the extension, you will get another button on the top of the page when you edit a message. If the message content shown HTML code, then click that button, and the HTML code will be converted to Markdown code

This way you do not need to re-write the markdown code of your message

** Note that it is only working on the answers and not on comments

To clarify! This is not a solution but only temporarily workaround the bug until it will be fixed

For the last few months, we have been working on fixing the root cause of this issue. We believe most, if not all, the cases are fixed now. If that is not the case, please mention me and attach the text in a file. Thank you.
