VisualEditor: [Regression] Inserting a template or reference moves the cursor to the top of the page
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Author: Wikifram

Description:
Version 2013-12-05 (MW 1.23wmf6), implemented at MediaWiki, now for the first time tested apparently (by me)... When you add a reference, the cursor is again positioned at the top of the article, no matter where you insert the reference. The focus (the part you actually see) of the page is where you added the reference, but when you start typing, you are actually adding text to the top of the page. This is confusing as hell.

The same applies when adding a template, but not with media.

A fix for this for wmf6 is going out in about 4 minutes' time; fixing it for wmf5 would involve back-porting half of wmf6, and is too risky. Sorry for the disruption.
