Hello @Legoktm could you please elaborate the description more. How can anyone reproduce the setting of the error, which extension is it about what, what do we need to clone etc?

Thanks for your interest! This is about the UrlShortener extension (see "Tags" on the right).
See https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/How_to_become_a_MediaWiki_hacker for how to set up a development environment and how to clone a codebase.

Hello @Aklapper and @Legoktm , I tried to reproduce the setting and installed the UrlShortener extension via using the vagrant way, as explained on the extension page. However, I do not see any ajax popup during the shortening process. A clear explanation of how to encounter the issue would be helpful.
