ANNOYANCE : When i hit EDIT on a post and make the ammendments, I always instinctively click the great big, shining, dark ‘Post Reply’ button rather than the greyed out, might as well be invisible, ‘Update’ button. Frantic clicking of the back button and disappointment as I realise I have to type that long and eloquent paragraph again.
SUGGESTION : Please, when someone hits EDIT on a post can you shift the focus to the ‘update’ button rather than the ‘post reply’ button.
Been there done that…annoyance confirmed.

I am writing a reply in that modal window. I want to open a new tab by CTRL +T, but I press CTRL +R by mistake which refreshes the browser -> so I instinctively start hitting ESC to stop the refreshing -> but unfortunately the ESC key is hooked to close that modal window so I am screwed anyway.
Solution: Disable the ESC key hook on it OR make sure the message is saved as draft.
Hard to believe, but this has happen to me many times. But for example I have never experienced the same user interaction explained by Jon (kops) above => every human being is different.
If you’re talking about the item comment section I always use right click on the reply _> open in new tab.
Now I have really old school textarea which acts natively
