mediawiki.notification: div#mw-notification-area remains visible and steals events after dismissing notification
Closed, ResolvedPublic


  1. Trigger a notification
  2. Click on the notification to dismiss it
  3. The notification area (<div id="mw-notification-area">) is now empty, but still obscures a narrow strip in the top right corner:






Object {top: 89.59375, left: 1251.203125}



This is a problem because the div steals events and mouse interaction from the UI elements below it. For instance, in VisualEditor:

  1. Open a page in VE
  2. Type '[['. The wikitext warning appears
  3. Click the warning to dismiss it
  4. Reveal #mw-notification-area in the inspector and observe how it's on top of part of the save button
  5. Very carefully move the mouse over the save button, and you'll notice a small (12px tall) area where mouse pointer is a normal pointer instead of a hand. Clicking in this area does not press the save button.

Version: unspecified
Severity: normal
