Recently the box for adding info regarding an edit has often been filled blue, (dont know the correct term for this, the same as sometimes highlights text on the computer)

Even when I manage to clear this, the wording in the changesets, as added edits from previously,eg, river added to map then( bridge added) hope I have made this easy to understand, help!
