Closed, DeclinedPublic


The issue is present in testwiki wmf.2 and in betalabs.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. As a mentor go to Special:MentorDashboard
  2. Click on Filters and enter a negative number (any other invalid input can be entered. The screenshot below display the case with a negative number input).
  3. Click on Update button.

FF 105 displays the error message with a smaller font, with the missing img, and the message text is different
Safari 15 displays the same text as Chrome 104, but the look is different - no img, smaller font, gray background.


  • The way the message is displayed by FF 105 and Safari 15 might be problematic by Accessibility standards.
  • The screenshots were made on testwiki wmf.2 for the same user in all three browsers and with the same filter settings and the same invalid input.

I'm not sure we can do anything about that; moving to Triaged for now.

Discussed in Growth Mentorship Prioritization meeting and it was decided to decline since we can't move forward with it on the Growth side.
