When i type in a comment, it types it in wikitext; for example, when I do Bold, it puts it in triple apostrophes. It happens on every wiki I comment on, including this one. It bothers me, and I would like to know how to fix it. Is this a glitch?
Please give a link to an example page you are trying to add comments to in VisualEditor. It doesn't behave the same on every page, so knowing a specific example page will help us figure out what's going on.
As I already said, that is the MiniEditor. What I neglected to say is that it's modes are analogous to the visual and source modes of the classic editor. If your browser is not capable of supporting visual mode, it will not support MiniEditor's visual mode.
Since you are using Edge, I am guessing it has been disabled along with the rich-text editor. The reason the rich-text editor was disabled for Edge is that there have been a lot of bugs specifically in Edge and Wikia wanted to save users the hassle of dealing with them while they try to get it fixed.
