VisualEditor crashes if the DefaultSummaries gadget is enabled
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

VisualEditor crashes when you try to save if the Defaultsummaries gadget is enabled. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Gadget-defaultsummaries.js ) This is new; it used to work.

Workaround: Disable the gadget.

(Might be Firefox-specific. I haven't tested it.)

Not really a VE bug, but here you go:

The gadget is using ve.init.mw.targets[0] to access the target, which isn't supposed to be a public API yet, but hey. This was removed recently and is now accessible via ve.init.mw.target.

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.
