Fix getAction is undefined bug

What does this MR do?

This fixes getAction is undefined bug. This happens when EditorMarkdownExtension receives a different instance argument. The problem is that the "Review" tab of WebIDE creates a CodeEditor instance for Source Editor, while both the "Review" and "Commit" are dealing with the DiffEditor instances.
