Editing posts using bottom "Bulk actions" dropdown menu doesn't work

Reported by: Krstarica Owned by: audrasjb
Milestone: 5.5.1 Priority: high
Severity: normal Version: 5.5
Component: Quick/Bulk Edit Keywords: has-patch
Focuses: Cc:

Description

The issue appeared after update to WordPress 5.5.

Steps to reproduce:

1) Visit "All Posts" page: /wp-admin/edit.php?post_status=publish&post_type=post

2) Tick box next to any post

3) Scroll to bottom of the page

4) Click "Bulk actions" dropdown menu, select "Edit" and click "Apply".

5) WordPress auto-scrolls to top of the page and "BULK EDIT" block appears.

6) Change anything in the "BULK EDIT" block, e.g. change Status or Sticky field.

7) Click "Update".

8) WordPress doesn't make any change and displays "No posts found" message.

When using "Bulk actions" dropdown menu from the top of the page, instead the one from the bottom, it behaves properly, i.e. changes the post and displays "1 post updated".
