Inserting a link forces the first character to be capitalised, which doesn't work for case-sensitive interwiki links
Closed, ResolvedPublic1 Estimated Story Points

Description

Steps to reproduce:

  • Create an interwiki link using a target like, "en:Lemur"
  • It's not necessary to save the article at this point, the bug occurs either way.
  • Open Visual Editor a second time and edit the same link again.

Notice that the link target is red now. It is "En:Lemur", which doesn't correctly trigger interwiki interpretation.
