That still happens and it is a frightening experience the first time. This is how to handle that situation with aplomb.
1. Click the URL icon and do your thing.
2. When everything else disappears, except for the link, highlight the link, right click and choose "copy." Then right click and choose "undo."
This will return the post to it's original state and then you can paste the URL into place.
Another way is to open a new ATS page, click on any thread and open a reply page and do the URL thing, copy the result and then go back to your edit
and paste it there.
I hope that's clear.
