Windows 7: Chrome not using WYSIWYG Editor of the forums

Chrome not using WYSIWYG Editor of the forums

Using Google Chrome version 23.0.1271.95 (latest at the time of this post), the WYSIWYG editor does not even come up, so everything is just BB code. However, in Firefox 16, it works fine. Is Chrome not compatible?

Edit: Updated to Firefox 17, and it works on that too.

I'm using FF so have you clicked on "Switch Editor Mode"?

That option does not appear for me on Chrome. Also in my user cp options I have WYSIWYG editor set.

For vBulletin forums there's no WYSIWYG editor with Chrome. You might see if this may help though. You can only add it if the link below is opened in Chrome.
