Aschmidt added a comment to T224042: Drag and drop of focusable nodes no longer works in Visual Editor.

For the record: I could use drag and drop with a footnote tonight for the first time again. :)

Aschmidt reopened T190841: Allow for conditional field mapping in Citoid as "Open".

I am sorry to say that the issue has come up again on Geman Wikipedia, so I have reopened the task for re-evaluation. @Cirdan has made a good point in describing the issue and the solution for dewiki above. In the meanwhile @Crazy1880 pointed out to an entry in OCLC that of course does contain the OCLC number, but not an ISBN. In German-speaking countries we rarely refer to OCLC ids. Also, we rarely use WorldCat, we prefer the catalogues maintained by our national libraries that issue ISBN and ISSN for German-language publications. So, I subscribe to Cirdan's description and I would be grateful if you please could change configuration accordingly.

Just to make sure: This worked before, and it only happens in JSTOR, no other resource is affected. I did not change anything about the local configuration.

@Esanders I have restarted Firefox on El Capitan with a fresh profile, and I have switched off auto hypenation on Meta Wiki. No changes, I'm afraid. :( Strange that it seems to work for you... Again, thanks for looking into this!

Thanks for testing, @TBolliger ! Meanwhile I have upgraded to Firefox 59.0.2, still on El Capitan, and it still looks as bad as it was before on my machine:

Aschmidt added a comment to T184467: CodeMirror in 2017 Wikitext Editor shows overlapping text in Firefox.

I'm afraid it is even worse than it was before. Text now looks blurred etc. even immediately after switching on syntax highlighting on my system (same as above, now FF 52.7.2 ESR). When we started out the effect appeared only when you began to enter some text in the editor...

Because of the recent renaming of this task by @TBolliger I'd like to point out once again that this is not only an issue concerning Chinese text, but also latin scripts and fonts.

Aschmidt added a comment to T184467: CodeMirror in 2017 Wikitext Editor shows overlapping text in Firefox.

I can confirm the issue with Firefox ESR 52.5.3 under El Capitan on German Wikipedia, i.e. no Chinese fonts, but monospace, viz. Courier. It first showed up right after T175223 was implemented. I am sorry that I didn't have the time since then to open another task. As was mentioned before, I have also found it helpful to toggle syntax highlighting, or to undo an edit in order to get rid of the blurry fonts. Also, it seems to make a difference whether you start typing underneath some text, e.g. on a talk page (more apt to show the fault), or whether you start editing in the middle of a text.

In fact this has already been secretly implemented on July 2017 and it worked then (I checked Greek and English Wikipedias) but now is withdrawn.

The more I work with VE and the new wikitext editor the more I get used to tools like citoid. For the time being, I switch from VE for creating a citation to wikitext for removing the ref tags in the Further Reading section.
I think the suggestion by @ManosHacker would be a good idea to start with.
I suggest to raise the priority of the task because it is really important to expert authors, as @Sadads has already pointed out.
I have opened a discussion on German Wikipedia.

I just would like to say that some of us have not been able to work in OTRS at all, including myself. I keep being logged out after some minutes, on some occasions after a few clicks, while the scenarios you are discussing are rather hypothetical, if I may say so.
