I have just been entering a comment, pressed CTRL-Z a few times in order to improve the wording, and suddenly my comment disappeared (or used white text color, whatsoever).
When trying to re-enter the comment (or to comment on a different question), still the text dows not appear (or in an invisible color).
The problem just disappeared after closing and restarting Firefox.
Is this a known StackExchange bug?
(And if so, does anyone mind?)
Have you waved a dead chicken over the keyboard? (seriously, don't anyone vote this answer up)
FWIW I have experienced an increasing number of Firefox bugs lately, plus stuff that just does not work in FF but is OK in IE8. So it might be SQLA, it might be FF... I still use FF as my main browser but that's looking more and more like too lazy to switch on my part.
...and don't anyone go quoting their horrible IE6 experiences to me, IE8 is not your grandfather's browser :)

It sometimes takes long:
Just found out that typing a capital umlaut turns the edit window in its "invisible state", at least with Firefox 3.5 and above. That's my typical typo when trying to insert an apostrophe because the key is just next to an 'Ä'...
No problem for all ye English users out there, methinks:)

Instead of using the answer option, is it possible to use the "add comment" option? Or is that available only after posting an answer? I will see it now :)
