Using a single quote locks up UI

Using the latest versions of WP and WC, and the Twenty-Sixteen theme while updating the appearance, and entering the Site Header Tagline, I tried to use a single quote.

The entire UI locks up and goes to la-la land.. After a few Chrome says "this page is unresponsive..."

Thought maybe someone might like to know about it..

Havent tried other themes or text lines..

Thanks for the report!

Has this happened for you in a more recent version of WordPress? The Customizer's automatic refresh converts straight quotes to curved "smart" quotes, so the problem may have been somewhere in that process.

I did not have trouble when I tried it in my local installation (WP 5.8.2, WooCommerce 5.9, Windows 10, Firefox 95). I typed single and double quotes on their own, then an apostrophe inside a word.
