If you type a message and then sign/encrypt it and then edit again
ity will of course invalidate the signature/encryption. It may be
that on MO if click encrypt/sign the programme assumes you want to
sign/encrypt at that point. So do not edit further. The fact that this
occurs every time you edit post click button suggests I am correct.
ANyhow, it is a good habit to learn - do not edit after you decide to

If true a bit silly but then M$ and MO are not the best out there.
