That's right, thanks. Works again for me, too. I've asked the other users who also had the same problem on dewiki. Maybe we could wait for their feedback.

Aschmidt added a comment to T336298: User notice for no ISBN support in Citoid.

Well, not exactly. A meta catalogue is always inferior to the original source because information gets lost. Citoid never worked fine as long as we had only WorldCat there. No objections to additional sources, but please leave K1plus, as is now.

I've been using Zotero for managing my personal library extensively over the years. It always used to be superior to the solution we had in Citoid. So I would second using Zotero's ISBN endpoint in Citoid. The Internet Archive cannot be better than that because the national libraries' catalogues are the reference for metadata of any book in print. I'm looking forward to the improvements you are about to implement!

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.

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:

Yes, I run FF ESR 52.7.3 on El Capitan, and given that the release is already there tonight (is it?), I'm sorry to say that nothing has changed. :(

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.

I second the suggestion to introduce a switch for the template an author deems fit for a citation.

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.

I forgot I also have to change the status of this task in order to have it reviewed again.

Shortly before I pass into the weekend I would like to thank you for applying the fix I requested.

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.

This is just to let you know that I can confirm that—for the time being, at least—I have been able to use OTRS with IPv6 disabled in Firefox, or in OS X Mavericks, for that matter.

Please note that the case of dual IPv4/IPv6 addresses is indeed one main problem we reproduced some weeks ago in issue T88224 which was soon closed and marked as a duplicate to this ticket. Such broadband connections are provided per default in this country.

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.
