In the Web mobile wikicode editor, the preview sometimes fails
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

I am editing Wikipedia, with the Web mobile wikicode editor.
I try to save the edit.

Expected result: I get the preview; I can save my edit.

Observed result: I get an error saying that the preview failed; I can save my edit.

Usually, I get the expected result.

Sometimes, the observed result occurs.

It would be nice to correct this bug.

Thank you.

What is the "Web mobile wikicode editor"?
Which exact page can this be reproduced on?
Which browser and version is this about?

When this problem happens, is there any debug output in the browser's developer tools' web console?

What is the "Web mobile wikicode editor"?

This is the (spartan) editor I get when editing an article on mobile Safari. It has a "m." in the address. For example, on "fr.m.wikipedia.org".
