Visual editor does not work with Modern Skin
Open, LowestPublic

Description

On Wikipedia under Preferences/Appearance I switched on the Modern Skin. Going to any article, I see "edit this page" and "edit source" links at the top. But clicking on "edit this page" has no effect; the visual editor is not switched on.

The skin will probably need some changes to be compatble with VE. https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/VisualEditor/Skin_requirements

This bug consists of two different parts:
Part 1 is the fact, that Modern skin isn't compatible with VE (probably the missing #content).
Part 2 is the fact, that even though Modern skin isn't compatible with VE, the editing tab for VE is still shown.

Please note that the Modern skin is not actively maintained by the foundation, but community patches are always welcome.
