Adding tags bug report

Very often when I select multiple cards and add a tag to them all, the browser becomes locked. I can open another browser window and continue using Anki as usual but I can’t close the locked window or Anki itself. I have to force quit Anki. I copied the error report and pasted it below. It is too long for this body so I have deleted some info I think might not be important.

Specifically it happens when I select multiple cards, add a tag to them, and without clicking on a single card to deselect the group, click in the side bar on another note type.
Deselecting the group by just clicking outside the cards doesn’t suffice. Another selection has to be made.

It’s an issue with the web toolkit. You could try changing to software mode to see if it helps.

Thank you as always!

Problem solved.

Oops, I spoke too soon. It still happens.

Thanks but it still happens in software mode. (Or does software mode have to be set every time Anki is opened?) Any other suggestions? Not a serious bug to bother you with, but will it be corrected sometime? Or do I just have learn to avoid it?

I’m afraid not much can be done but hope that it gets fixed in a future toolkit update.
