Hi @jesperher,

Thanks for your ticket! Could you please share which browser/version you are using when you see this issue? I cannot reproduce it in FF or Chrome on Windows 10 machine.

I was able to replicate this on Windows 10, using Chrome Version 67.0.3396.99. On Edge It simply doesn't even load the toolbar, it works fine on IE. I'm running WordPress 5.0-alpha-43320 and the only active plugin is the Beta Tester plugin.

I tried to edit an image and this is what is happening: https://cloudup.com/ckf_Mr9Zf-w

You can see in the image that the link button is selected as well.
