Open, Needs TriagePublic



This task is about managing contributor expectations around slow performance time through the addition of a loading screen, microcopy and a UI refresh.

User Story

When I am using mobile VE and click on content that takes time to load,
I want to be assured that the screen is loading and not crashing,
so that I can focus my attention on the content I want to edit.
