Thank you. I did not mean to cause any offence but I was a little intemperate, so I offer my sincere apologies. May you all have a happy new year.

So are you admitting that the damage you have done is irreversible? Then I can only hope and pray that you can and will repair it? This is what you have done (15th December):


The font size is here set to 24. Default font size 9:

As you can see the header depth is apparently zero. The footer is exactly the same. Some days prior to that the depths were reduced from two lines to one, inconvenient in itself. When you are working on repairing this damage, remember that the object is to make the editor workable under Safari (I have 12.0.2), so how it may appear under other browsers is not to the point.
I gather I'm not supposed to be speaking to you here, but having my editor suddenly made unusable was and remains devastating and my cry for help in Sciptorium has hardly been taken seriously. I remain desperate.

Ankry states he has not observed these contracted header/footers. However, Wiki is a worldwide programme that has to be functional across a wide range of platforms, not just those on a little paradise island. For this reason the programming should always be robust and straightforward.
If I remember right, this all began because someone complained his headers were too large. Can you in all honesty say that you observed this for yourself? In any case, the changes made were a downgrade on what was there before and surely your efforts should be towards improvement rather than deterioration. I note from other contributors that there have been other adverse effects.
My computer is a MacBook Pro running under OS Mohave 10.14.2 with Safari 12.0.2. It is pretty clean with very few add-ons (Microsoft Office for one) and containing for the most part text and pdf files. It's cache is now cleared.
Incidentally, when this first began, mid-December, I first observed a reduction of the header field to one line. This was still usable but not very nice. That only lasted a few days before you blotted it out altogether. I can paste into the headers/footers but as I cannot see what is in them I cannot edit if anything is amiss.

I have now cleared my browser cache and it has made no difference, even after rebooting my computer. As this problem arose at the same time as some jiggery-pokery was going on with the programming of header-footer sizes (15th December), I think blaming something at my end is rather desperate measures. Why not just enlarge the header and footer fields again? That isn't going to prevent anyone form editing.
I've been posting on Wikisource for some years now and have contributed much material, so I think you owe me a little effort. Myself, I suspect some of the programming done was a little suspect and suggest the best way forward is to remove it and return to the perfectly good editor we had before.

This is what I have been looking at for nearly three weeks now:

As Balajigadesh remarks above the header and footer now have no depth at all and are impossible to see and edit. When is this ruination going to be corrected? If the whole change cannot be reversed then we need resizable boxes urgently. The editor at the moment is frankly unusable. If only I had the option of using an older version.
