MarketPress - Order Status Page Editor

In:

wp-admin/edit.php?post_type=product&page=marketpress&tab=messages

I've tested with Chrome and Firefox on Mac when you highlight some words to test and click the link button you cannot add an anchor with the wysiwyg (no popup or link insert).

The form states you can use html and so I did (see screenshots). The first save makes the changes in the admin area, however viewing the front end of the site shows the html code and not linked equivalent, saving the form in the back-end again (twice in total) converts the link to a clickable one.
