Warnings on data loss are not applied in Flow when VE or wikitext is used
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

Users are not prompted for confirmation that they will lose data , if they try to leave an active Flow edit-session (e.g., close the tab, press the back button, left-click a link, etc).

It should display a browser-warning, as it will currently do if we edit and then try to leave a standard page (try wikitext and visualeditor)

(Note: It used to work, in wikitext at least.)

On mediawiki.org it currently doesn't warn you when you navigate to other pages, back and forth in the history, or close the tab, on wikitext editor neither, if you have started to write a message, and it's quite annoying.
