#55332: problem with quick comment discarded changes

 The function discardCommentChanges in js/edit-comments.js does not seem to
 be working as intended. When using the quick comment editor, the function
 is called when an edit is started, and it does nothing at that point as
 expected. But if you click away from the form, nothing stops you and you
 lose your comment changes.

 On the other hand, if a plugin enqueues edit-comment.js, buddyboss-
 platform does (I don't know how/why), and you are editing a post (my
 attached example is an event venue), the function is triggered on update.
 With no comments involved, the original content is an empty string and the
 editied comment is undefined and that triggers the popup warning that
 changes might be lost.
