VisualEditor: First character added to a blank dialog entry box (reference or caption) is mis-placed and never makes it into DM in Firefox
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

With Vector in FF.
Try to add a caption to an image:
the words will be splitted on multiple lines, with the first letter being automatically placed on the second line, the other letters on the first one, and no ability to fix this.

I understand that https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=38129 is coming but I thought I'd file this anyway.


Version: unspecified
Severity: normal

This is probably specific to Firefox. I'm able to replicate this in Firefox 25 on a Mac, but not Safari 6.

It is.

This was fixed last week as part of our fix-up of how windows works, happily (or, at least, I think so – I can replicate on enwiki but not on MediaWiki.org).

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
