Closed, ResolvedPublic


Thank you to @Pelagic for reporting this issue: Topic:Wk7cqvino2vjv0jz.

This task is about fixing Automatic Topic Subscription's first-run experience such that the pop-up appears "in front of" the page's chrome when creating a new talk page.


  1. Visit Special:Preferences to ensure the Automatically subscribe to topics setting is enabled
  2. Visit a talk page that does not yet exist. E.g. .
  3. Click the Start a discussion affordance
  4. Type some text into the New Discussion Tool's Title and Description fields


  1. ❗️Notice the You have subscribed pop-up appears is obfuscated by the page's chrome and menus

Oh, I've noticed this as well, and fixed it already before we merged the patch (but after I set up the last demo):

The popup should be displayed below the new comment instead of above if there isn't space for it:

(please test after T295945 is fixed, because the popup when creating new talk page is broken for an unrelated reason)
