Image editor not working after WP update 4.9.5 this week

I used to upload images to my wordpress site, then resize them to fit my columns of info. After this week's update:

  1. I am unable to select & copy images; it must be done at the text level.
  2. If you left click on an image, you automatically jump to the bottom of the open page.
  3. If you try to use the image delete ("X") or edit (pencil image), nothing happens.

I am using regular google browser, I see that some other users have inquired about this exact problem recently, but it appears unresolved.

Is there a way to make it function like before?

Thanks & we appreciate all you do.

Welcome to Trac and thanks for the ticket!

I tried on a fresh WordPress 4.9.5 install but could not reproduce the issue.
Please see the screencast below.


Please try with a fresh WordPress install with no additional / 3rd party plugins activated. If you have some of them activated already, I would suggest you first deactivate all of them and test again.

Thank you!

I can reproduce this in 4.9.6 on several sites in Chrome and in Firefox. But I've found it only does it when the image links to something, whether it's the media itself or an external URL or whatever. The toolbar is pushing down the content rather than overlaying as it does in earlier versions of WP.
