Description

For any element on Commons not yet linked to an item on wikidata when I try to add interlanguage links and if the wikipedia article/category I want to link it to does not yet have an item on wikidata when I then click on Add Links on the sidebart menju in Commons and when I put the lInk with the page nothing happens.

Here are 3 elements for which I have this scenario

I use by now Firefox 63.0 (64-bit) on Windows 10 pro 1803

This issue did not happen on Firefox 62

This seems to be independent of the browser used as I get the same behaviour with Microsoft EdgeHTML 17.17134
