When the "Comments" tab is open the empty content element is always in
the DOM, although it is only shown once the message collection was
fetched and there were no messages. Due to this it is necessary to
explicitly wait for it to be shown instead of relying on the implicit
wait made to find the element; otherwise it would be found immediately
and if the collection was not fetched yet it would not be visible,
causing the test to fail.

If the server is too slow, changing to a different file immediately
after sending a new comment but without waiting for the comment to be
shown for the original file could cause the new comment to be shown for
the current file instead.

This is, indeed, a bug in the comments. However, it is not possible to
test it reliably in the acceptance tests, as it depends on how fast the
server adds the message and how fast the client changes to a different
file; sometimes the test would fail and sometimes it would not.

Therefore, now it is waited for the comment to be added before changing
to another file, as in this case it can be reliably tested that changing
to a different file does not cause the comments from the previous file
to be shown in the current file (this was a different bug already fixed
and due to which this test was added in the first place).

Tested and works 👍 (although maybe I should not review due to being the original author?)
