Cursor should be focused in Citoid's automatic box
Open, Stalled, Needs TriagePublic

Description

What happened:

  1. Copy a URL for a source
  2. Click 'Cite'
  3. Paste URL
  4. Why's that URL in the article text instead of in the citoid box?
  5. Cancel that (which makes the URL disappear from the article text) and start over.

Which wiki/browser is this on?

Mvolz moved this task from Backlog to Extension on the Citoid board.May 25 2017, 11:12 AM
Jdforrester-WMF changed the task status from Open to Stalled.

Firefox 54 on macOS 10.12.5. I can't reproduce this in Safari 10.

Can't reproduce in FF+Mac. Can you? Can someone else with a Mac (@Jdforrester-WMF ?)

I can't reproduce this in Firefox 53 or 54 on my Mac. Is this still happening for @Whatamidoing-WMF?

P.S. No, I don't keep two separate versions of Firefox on my computer. I went to check which version it was, it told me 53, and then it decided to update to 54. ;-)

Yeah, I can't replicate this either. Possibly caused by typing too fast, but I couldn't get it to happen even then. Propose marking this as Invalid?

  1. There is no such thing as "typing too fast".
  2. I can reproduce if doing this is the very first thing that I try to do in the document. Perhaps it's not sure where the cursor is supposed to be?

Do you mean the first thing you insert, or literally the first you do i.e. before even moving the cursor to a sensible place? If it's the latter then we can mark it very low...

The most reliable way for me to reproduce it is to do this as literally the very first thing: Open page, click the Cite button, and immediately paste the URL. Do not click anywhere in the page before clicking the Cite button, and do not use the keyboard shortcut to open the citoid box.

(I shouldn't have to move the cursor to a sensible place; it ought to automatically be in a sensible place, always.)

Even with these steps, I am still unable to reproduce this. :-/
