Clicking on "show preview" in mobile deletes all progress; ends up on unexpected page
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

If I click on "preview" while on a URL like this:

https://commons.m.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Commons:Village_pump&editintro=Commons%3AVPnotice&section=new#/editor/new

It deletes everything I've written and redirects me to an inferior editor on the top of the page, however without this link it is not possible to start a new subject in the Village Pump.

Hi @DonTrung, thanks for taking the time to report this!
Unfortunately this report lacks some information. If you have time and can still reproduce the problem: Please add a more complete description to this report which includes a clear list of specific steps to reproduce the situation (step by step, as a list), as little details matter, information about your web browser(s), the expected outcome, and the actual outcome.
You can edit the task description by clicking Edit Task.
Ideally, exact and clear steps to reproduce should allow any other person to follow these steps (without having to interpret those steps) and see the same results. Problems that others can reliably reproduce can get fixed faster. Thanks!

As an example let's try Commons:De Kroeg, first I go to the desired page:

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:De_Kroeg

Then I try to start a new subject:

https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Commons:De_Kroeg&action=edit&section=new

But as my phablet is too small for my old eyes 👀 I switch to mobile:

https://commons.m.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Commons:De_Kroeg&section=new#/editor/new

After typing in a message I will click on "Preview", but somehow end up here:

https://commons.m.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Commons:De_Kroeg#/editor/0
