Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

  1. Go to the English Wikipedia Preferences page.
  2. Now try to leave the page (by clicking back button, closing page, etc.) -- a dialog box appears saying you haven't saved preferences.

See attached screenshot, which shows the "Your preferences have been saved" note next to the Chrome dialog for "You have unsaved preferences."
