Comment 'Quick Edit' email field contains Javascript code

This is for WP3.3.

When I use the Edit Comments page in the back end and choose the 'quick edit' option for a given comment (any comment), the email field appears to contain both the email address and then a piece of Javascript code:

email@domain.com/* <![CDATA[ */(function(){try{var s,a,i,j,r,c,l=document.getElementById("__cf_email__");a=l.className;if(a){s='';r=parseInt(a.substr(0,2),16);for(j=2;a.length-j;j+=2){c=parseInt(a.substr(j,2),16)^r;s+=String.fromCharCode(c);}s=document.createTextNode(s);l.parentNode.replaceChild(s,l);}}catch(e){}})();/* ]]> */

Saving the comment then strips this down so the original commenter's email address becomes


This doesn't happen with the full blown 'Edit' dialog, just the Ajax 'quick edit'

This is caused by CloudFlare email protection, see this support forum thread. I'm not sure if there's anything we can do to prevent this, but you could try turning off this feature for wp-admin or something.
