 @pareshradadiya @mlwilkerson Thanks for reviving this issue. The root
 problem is that we are loading our own library that registers itself as
 `jQuery.fn.autocomplete`, and it's different from the jQuery UI library
 loaded by `wp_editor()`. The only way I can think of to fix this problem
 is to change the name of our library. In [attachment:4824.diff], I've made
 it `jQuery.fn.autocompletebp`. It's ugly, but it resolves the conflict.

 The only potential for breakage here is if someone was intentionally
 trying to do something custom using our autocomplete scripts on their
 page. I have a feeling this is very unlikely, and I would much rather fix
 the problem with `wp_editor()` than try to maintain this weird bit of
 backward compatibility. Does anyone disagree?

 This would go away if we used something less insane for our autocomplete.
 See #4580.
