The cell options in the table seem to be missing so I cannot change a cell background

When I create a table in Jira, I have recently experienced that the cell options feature is not displaying all features.  For example I often use the merge cell functionality and background colours to a cell, but they are not available always.  I cannot figure out why it works in some cases and not others.

I have tried deleting the table and re-adding but this doesn't work either.

@Miriam Cox which specific Jira product are you using, and are you inserting this table in the Description field on an Issue?

I'm creating a user story in Jira software and I am creating it in the description field.

@Miriam Cox I think there's a bug, but I found if I scrolled to the bottom of my table and waved my mouse around the base it would end up finally displaying the "Cell Options" menu.
