Default Issues with Quoting posts

At random times when I click the quote button to reply to a post, it doesn't actually quote the post. Doesn't happen all the time though.

That's an issue with Firefox and posts that contain special characters.

For example a normal quote on the keyboard " is fine, but if it's slanted quotes from a web article i.e. “ and ” then Firefox will have problems quoting it (or rather it's probably the forum software javascript and Firefox together.

Edge and Chrome don't seem to have the same problem.

bump. I feel this getting worse and worse ... and the thing is, it doesn't make any sense any more. I can sometimes quote posts that have special characters, like this post from photon above - but sometimes I can't quote posts that don't even have a single one of them in it.

is there any way this could be fixed? I don't have this issue on any other forum/site/etc. and I don't really want to switch to another browser just for CP

I used to have this issue all the time, I would compose my post in Word and then copy-paste it in the forum

I would have to change all the " and ' and - or else when I preview my post all the text would be deleted.

If you are having trouble quoting a post I would bet that it's because you're quoting someone like myself that was composing their post from word or something before they pasted it in their post.

It would probably take a Javascript guru to fix without switching to different newer forum software.
