Section edit replaces full page with Opera Mini
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

See diff - edit was done on the desktop wikitext editor interface, on Opera Mini, and the section somehow completely replaced the page. There was no edit conflict, nor any other edits to the page around the same time. Saving was done right after a preview, which worked normally. Apparently this is not the first time of such a diff showing up, although browser or other details are not known for the earlier ones.

Maybe the wpSection form parameter got lost? Opera Mini has its own cache servers which could have interfered somehow, although it's hard to see why that would have happened on a POST.

Opera Mini has its own cache servers.

Does Opera Turbo work also on HTTPS? On desktop (v12.17) certainly not.

You are right, it probably wouldn't.
