I can reproduce this problem as well. A pity, because not being able to save makes the Visual Editor, well, pretty much useless. I've changed priority to 'High' for that reason.

Adding to my previous comment: when i try to switch to wiki markup mode i get the same error. No way to save my stuff :(

Here's a stack trace:

Now fixed and back-ported to production.

This issue is verified for test2.But in mw.org I still cannot save after adding a template in Chrome 26.0.1410.65, however it does not show any error in the console as such Uncaught TypeError: Object [object Text] has no method 'setAttribute'

In FireFox, it works for both test 2 and mw.org.

Hence reopening it.If it is a separate issue please Close this one , I will file a separate issue for mw.org

Can't reproduce on mw.org. Which template did you use?

Maybe if you refresh it will go away? Sounds most likely like a cacheing issue…

Works for mw.org in Chrome now.Might be a caching issue.
