Additional information

post a screen recording of this not working in the sandbox vault.

Have you tried the same thing in the Help → Sandbox Vault without using any plugins? If it works there (as it does for me) then the issue is likely to be a plugin, theme, font, or css snippet.

EDIT: Might be worth updating the installer as well.

Ok, problem is with Emoji Toolbar plugin.

  1. Open Sandbox
  2. Install Emoji Toolbar and enable it.
  3. Create tag with emoticon, ex. #:bug:
  4. Change to reading mode.
  5. Click on the tag.

Here is screen record
