Don't switch preference for VE/wikitext if your device doesn't support your preferred editor
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

This has come up for users moving from mobile to desktop, because mobile doesn't support VE. When a user who has VE as the editor preference writes a Flow post on the phone, the preference will be set back to wikitext. We should not update the preference in that case.
