Problems with the WYSIWYG editor

Hi, been using b2evolution for a long time now. Currently on 6.10.8, but the same problems began on 6.10.7. Pretty sure everything was OK prior to the last 2 updates. I'm running the blog on Ubuntu 18.04, was using Apache2 before, but have recently converted to Nginx. I am also using Cloudflare (from mid Dec 2018).

Problem 1

When editing a blog, clicking or right clicking on any inline picture in the editor will shoot me to the top of the article (like pressing the CTRL+HOME key).

Problem 2

When editing articles, I like to click "save & edit", or "preview". One of these actions (or both) will insert an extra blank line (empty paragraph) before and after every image. After several edits, I often have to remove 5+ empty lines before and after every image.

Problem 3

This only happens on my mobile phone. I can't seem to replicate this on my desktop browser (even after I set the width/dimensions to a mobile (e.g. Samsung S5). The first pages load fine, but second pages onwards, pictures are not sized properly (e.g. https://www.snakeoil-os.net/news/folklore/folklore-power-cables-do-not-make-a-difference?page=2). That page fails to work on my mobile (tested with Firefox, Chrome and the mobile built in browser)

Problems 1 and 2 is making it hard for me to create content. And 3 basically killed the mobile experience for my users. Hopefully folks can help me identify if this is a config issue, or a bug in the blogging software.

Problem 1: I can't reproduce this on Mac/Safari. What browser/OS are you using?

Problem 2: I can't reproduce this. Can you make the smallest possible post that exhibits this problem and copy/paste the HTML source it in a codeblock here. I will copy/paste it into b2evo to see if it adds blank lines on that content.

Problem 3: This is not related to the WYSIWYG editor, please make a separate post (and don't forget to mention if and how you modified the original skin and CSS).

Windows 10. Tried with Chrome (74.0.3729.131), Opera (58.0.3135.132) and Firefox(66.05).

The blog articles I'm editing are always using page breaks, with a lot of pictures (all inline). The blog is set to "community".

I'll see if I can do this later this weekend. As mentioned in the previous post, it's an empty paragraph, when I switch to the markup, the code looks something like:

<p> </p>
<p> </p>
[image:1042]
<p> </p>
<p> </p>

Good point. I'll do that later. (Work hours right now).

Thanks for the quick resonse :).

Edit: I'm assuming nobody else is seeing this?
