WordPress Multisite: Menu Editor Does Not Work In Subsites

Reported by: javad2000's profile javad2000 Owned by:

If you install a fresh WordPress multisite without any plugins, and you create a subsite like and you go to Appearance > Menus in the dashboard of the subsite, you come across the following problems although you do not have such problems with the main site's menu editor:
(I tested with various browsers, various PCs, various OS's, on the latest Wordpress version 5.5.3, a fresh install without any plugins)
1- We cannot add new items:
We can add new pages to the menu, but we cannot add new custom links, posts, categories, etc. to the menu. We can add them easily to the menu of the main site, but not the subsite.

2- We cannot move / rearrange the menu items:
When we click "edit" beside a menu item, we do not see the arrangement options such as Move Up / Move Down / Move Under / etc. Those options are available in the main site.

3- Screen Options Button Does not Work:
When we click on Screen Options, the button does not work. It works well on the main site.

I have a similar issue, in case anyone ends up here, and was caused by a plugin: "Category Order and Taxonomy Terms Order".
