Thanks for this blog! :) I had the same issue, which I first noticed in Firefox, on Google search result pages. And indeed in Notepad++. But with your instruction, the problem is solved. I could have waited for a patch patch by MS, but seemingly that is not so easy to make. The problem-causing patch is a week old already. I’ll keep track of this blog for further developments. Thanks again.
