Cannot create hyperlinks using editor in Posts / Pages since 4.7.4

On 3 of my sites so far since the update to 4.7.4, in posts, I cannot create hyperlinks using editor. I have to go into the code to create them manually. Divi on 2 of them, one is X theme. Yesterday before update, had no issues. Note that this is consistent with most recent versions of FF and Chrome. Tried using iphone (Safari) as well, no luck.

So when using Divi, is this in the front-end visual builder or on the back-end?

Hi @smtotman. Are you still experiencing this in WordPress 5.6? Does the problem still exist if you disable all plugins and activate a default theme e.g. Twenty Twenty?

I tested this locally and everything seems OK. Closing for now, but happy to reopen if there's more info.
