Fomafix added a comment to T177509: No in-browser spell checking in Firefox when "Wikitext syntax highlighting" beta feature is enabled with the 2010 wikitext editor.

Firefox 63 is affected by the accesskey problem. Firefox 64 is untested. Therefor I disabled the spellchecker for Firefox < 65 in PS5.

Fomafix added a comment to T177509: No in-browser spell checking in Firefox when "Wikitext syntax highlighting" beta feature is enabled with the 2010 wikitext editor.

This means, that disabling of the spellchecking in Firefox is not needed anymore. https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/421349 removes the disabling of the spellchecking and can now merged. Maybe a version check of the exact Firefox version should remain to prevent that older Firefox versions accidentally insert accesskey characters into the content when the accesskey is used.

I can confirm a different behavior with CodeMirror and without CodeMirror on WikiText editor 2010 on Linux.

On Firefox 65 the problem with the accesskeys does not exist anymore. Mozilla probably fixed this problem in a version between 59 and 65.

Fomafix added a comment to T210851: Spacing between diff and pipe separator is double what it should be in Special:Contributions.

The some local messages replace the first space by &nbsp; (U+00A0) to prevent that the line gets wrapped before the pipe (or similar) symbol. Because U+00A0 is not a whitespace it can not collapse with the whitespace between the two spans.

Fomafix added a comment to T210789: Table of contents' hidden state isn't kept after reload.

It is possible to reimplement the former behavior and store the status in a cookie on a change. Restoring the status from a cookie with JavaScript can only be done after DOM ready and this leads to a flash of the full ToC before it get minimized. A way to avoid this is to hide the ToC already on server-side. With a cookie this would also be possible but cookies are unwanted for such a think. An alternative is to store the status in a user option. Anonymous user have no user options and therefor they can not store the status in the user options. An advantage of storing in user options is that the status is shared for browser the user uses.

Fomafix added a comment to T154237: SVG image wikisyntax can't use "lang=zh-hant".

SVG uses language codes from BCP 47 and MediaWiki uses language code from BCP 47 (at least there is a mapping from the internal MediaWiki language code to a BCP 47 conform language code). The Unix system environment variable LANG contains a language code following a different standard. It is not possible to convert a BCP 47 language code to a Unix language code and back to a BCP 47 language code without loosing information. Therefor the language code must not transferred from MediaWiki to librsvg via the environment variable LANG. librsvg need a separate parameter with a BCP 47 language code.

Fomafix added a comment to T50256: Make brackets in section edit links accessible to CSS.

MediaWiki is not only for the WMF wikis. But not supporting the TLS connection to the WMF server is a additional good argument to use CSS pseudo elements although IE6 does not show them. Pseudo elements is a possibility to solve T175977: Prevent web crawler from indexing buttons in content.

Fomafix added a comment to T205581: Special:Contributions, Special:RecentChanges, Special:Watchlist should be fully skinnable - use pseudo elements for separating elements.

Using CSS pseudo elements is one solution to allow skins to style the content of a special page. A more flexible solution would be to use templates like Mustache to generate the special page and allow the skins to overwrite the templates. This allows also to change the HTML.
