Open, MediumPublic


Original bug title:
URL input should be enabled on click and option should be toggled to upload by url

As a user, I would like to be able to just insert the URL into the URL text input on [[Special:Upload]] without having to switch the tiny option before.

Current behaviour:
Input is disabled and I have to switch to the URL-option before.

Version: unspecified
Severity: enhancement

This is a bit tricky to implement as disabled elements usually do not emit events.

Probably needs an invisible overlay to catch the click.

This task has been assigned to the same task owner for more than two years. Resetting task assignee due to inactivity, to decrease task cookie-licking and to get a slightly more realistic overview of plans. Please feel free to assign this task to yourself again if you still realistically work or plan to work on this task - it would be welcome!

(For the records, two emails were sent to assignee addresses before resetting assignees. See T228575 for more info and for potential feedback. Thanks!)
