Is this a regression? I thought it used to work…


James also tried this and couldn't reproduce it. I think I may have asked someone else as well since... not sure.

If anything caused this, it's probably (and -maybe- another thing related to the de-isolation of windows?)

Did anyone other than the reporter ever manage to reproduce this issue?

Tricky to reproduce - happens only in test2:

  • make some changes on a page - click Save
  • in 'Save your changes dialog box' check(or uncheck) 'This is minor edit' check box - notice that the cursor will be gone from the Summary area.
  • click 'Resume editing' and make some changes again
  • click Save - the cursor won't be placed in the Summary area anymore

The cursor always goes back to the summary field for me, after following those instructions.

Oh I did manage to reproduce what I think is this issue when I tried it on testwiki though - the focus moves from the summary field to somewhere else when I press save again.
