Cannot create new threads, issues, or visitor messages using Firefox Issue Tools

Cannot create new threads, issues, or visitor messages using Firefox
This appeared to break recently.

I usually use Firefox, and today I noticed that certain edit boxes are complete broken: the forum either tries to render the entire O-F page within the edit box, or it just renders empty HTML in the edit box that looks like this:

It still seems to work fine in Chrome and Edge, however.

The same issue occurs when trying to create a new visitor message or site support issue as well, or edit existing ones: the textedit box does not work.

Note that replying to existing threads still works fine on Firefox; it is only creating new forum threads or trying to edit existing project issue posts that does not work.

Steps to reproduce:
  1. Log in to the forum using Firefox (I'm using the latest version as of today, 68.0.1 (64-bit)).
  2. Navigate to any subforum (e.g., "Orbiter Web Forum") and click "New Thread" at the bottom of the page.

The "Post New Thread" page appears. The edit box appears editable briefly (i.e., has a white background and scrollbars), but within a second or two switches to read-only with a gray background, or, sometimes, the O-F header graphic appearing inside it, like it's trying to render the entire page inside the edit box.

Should be able to create new threads and edit existing project posts using Firefox.

Puts the Fun in Dysfunctional
There is a bug here, introduced I think with the move to cloud flare. I'm working on understanding it more.

In the meantime there is a workaround, if you switch from WYSIWYG mode, you'll be able to create content still.

This should now be resolved. It appears to be caused by CloudFlare's "Rocket Loader", so I've disabled that for now.
