Escalating priority. Additional example:

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.
php?title=OMICS_Publishing_Group&curid=35277259&diff=562944992&oldid=56157968
0

I can't reproduce this, and can in fact edit the page just fine: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=OMICS_Publishing_Group&diff=563024944&oldid=562947045

This bug must have some particularly nasty cache persistence properties; we've purged the Parsoid caches but that doesn't seem to have made it go away.

I think it might be to do with having punctuation in the links in this edit
https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Soccer_in_the_United_States&diff=prev&oldid=563041224
this the links which have ' or ( in them which get mangled other links are ok so
[[United States men's national soccer team|men's national team]] gets changed to
[[./United_States_men's_national_soccer_team|men's national team]] but [[FIFA World Cup|World Cup]] is unchanged. And [[National Professional Soccer League (1967)|National Professional Soccer League]] is changed to [[./National_Professional_Soccer_League_(1967)|National Professional Soccer League]].

According to https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Technik/Text/Edit/VisualEditor/Beta2013-07#VE_zerschie.C3.9Ft_Kats_und_Wikilinks this seems to be an issue in old Firefox: FF14 inserted the ./, while FF22 didn't.

Confirmed in Firefox 14. Steps to reproduce:

  1. Open https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HELLP_syndrome?veaction=edit as a logged in user
  1. Make an unrelated edit
  1. Press "Save" and "Review your changes".

The link [[Right upper quadrant (abdomen)|right upper quadrant]] is transformed to [[./Right_upper_quadrant_(abdomen)|right upper quadrant]].

Can reproduce in Firefox 13 and 14; cannot reproduce in 15 or 17 or 20. Interestingly in Firefox 13 I get a little bit more normalization in the diff as well. Looks like we get more progressively more broken the further down we go. :P

We believe that this should not recur due to the (hopefully-temporary) blacklisting of Firefox 13 and 14, which is now live in production. Consequently, I'm marking this bug as fixed. Please re-open if you find it happening again.

I think you viewed this bug solely as a blocker to bug 50848. I agree that it no longer is, but I don't believe this bug is now resolved/fixed. The issue hasn't been fixed, as I understand it, just worked around. I'm re-opening the bug, but removing bug 50848 as a blocker, lowering the importance fields, and clarifying the bug summary.

Well, had you given me more than 30 seconds I was in the middle of creating a new bug, but never mind. :-) Repurposing this one.

Just wondering, has anybody tested VE on those old Firefoxes somewhat recently? The codebase is changing so fast this might as well be magically fixed now.
