Optimize Replying Experience for low bandwidth/slow loading environments
Open, Needs TriagePublic



Display a loading affordance that indicates to users in low bandwidth or slow loading environments that their reply conversation is loading and not crashing.

This ticket is being filed as an outcome of the usability testing performed in T281438 where a contributor in such an environment had this exact experience with the reply tool and thought that the tool had crashed but it was in fact just loading.
