Can't copy text from diary while composing a comment

If I begin composing a comment, and then try to copy some text from another part of the same page (either from the diary or from another comment) I get a popup that says "Are you sure?" If I click YES, the box where my comment is being composed is closed (and the draft comment is lost).

I've found a workaround (open a separate tab to compose the comment), but that's annoying. It may be that the first copy in a new window/tab works, but subsequent ones fail.

I am using firefox 68.0.1 (64-bit) on Windows 7.

    I have the same issue on both Android/chrome and windows 10, with both Firefox and chrome.
