This is concerning; bug 65222 should have fixed this from happening. What browser were you using? I can't replicate in wmf7 in Chrome, Safari or Firefox.

However, it does seem to have regressed in wmf8.

I can still reproduce it in Firefox and Chrome on

In Firefox after opening the Save dialog, if I type, the text is added to the article.

In Chrome the text doesn't seem to be added anywhere.

And what's worse, I can now also reproduce it in the English Wikipedia.

Sorry, that comment was half-written about a different bug. Bah Bugzilla.

I can indeed replicate in wmf7 and above (which is now everywhere).
