Closed, ResolvedPublic8 Estimated Story Points

Description

<Kemayo> Krenair: Fun single-edit-tab interaction... if you have the "always give me the visual editor" preference set, then clicking the edit-source VE toolbar button opens up the wikitext editor and immediately does a redirect to visual editor again.
