Grammarly won't work in dev.to?

I noticed that grammarly is enabled for the editor in dev.to? I'm not sure if this was intentional or any issue with my browser. Anyone facing this?

I'm using latest Firefox.

👋 We disabled Grammarly for the time being because there was an error on their end that disabled the post editor text field. I don't think Grammarly has made a fix lately, but maybe it has?

I believe it was only for Chromium based browsers though, so Grammarly should work on Firefox.

If you want to re-enable Grammarly manually, you can run this snippet in your browser console. However, I'm not sure if it will allow the editor to work 😬

document.querySelector('textarea').dataset.gramm_editor = "true"
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Yeah, same problem here. Their support told me it is “disabled on purpose by the website”, but that is pretty much just deattaching from responsibility, in my opinion... Whenever I am done with an article, I copy the whole thing into a Grammarly document and correct it that way. They don't mess with formatting, and you can ignore errors related to markdown or emojis.
