  • The root cause is actually a bug in the Edge browser platform, we are working on a fix but currently do not have an eta.
      We’ve outreached to Tumblr with the suggested work around.

  • Tumblr has stated only a very small percentage of posts are text posts and copy-pasting from a website would decrease this even further.  Right now they will monitor and reevaluate if users are experiencing this issue but they are unable to prioritize a fix.
