When I am editing a Wikipedia article, and click the citation dropdown>Template, and any citation template, the space where citation info would go is comp blank. Looks like a bug has removed all data.

Hi @Shreerajtheauthor. Thanks for taking the time to report this.
I assume this is about English Wikipedia and the classic Wikieditor (not VisualEditor).
Using any web browser's developer tools, it's shown that https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki:RefToolbar.js triggers the error TypeError: CiteTB.getOpenTemplate(...) is undefined.
User scripts and gadgets are local features and managed on wiki. Phabricator/Maniphest is used for MediaWiki, MediaWiki extensions, or server configuration. You could contact the author(s) of the script, comment on the talkpage of the script, or ask for help on the English Wikipedia Technical Village Pump
Closing as INVALID here in Phabricator as this is a matter to discuss and fix on the local wiki and unfortunately not handled in Phabricator/Maniphest.
For future reference, if you want to debug such problems yourself (because everybody can):
For more information see:
I suspect this is a regression due to Change Ia7ad5aaa9cac429d1c9d706bdf6760e3eda358bc
That change makes the somewhat reasonable assumption that .html of a dialog is a string, but Reftoolbar is feeding it jQuery elements.
