I tested it when logged out and everything worked, so I looked in both the common.js and common.css. There were copied css settings from another editor, one of which had a max-height setting for the main textarea dimensions. After removing it, everything is as it should be.

Please close this report. It is repaired.
@Aklapper. It works when logged out AND the header/footer rows are 3 lines!!! So, deleted all my Wikipedia related cookies, logged back in and the problem returned. Will remove my common.js & common.css and see what happens. If it's still not working, the problem might be my preferences \edit or the \gadgets.

Using Firefox 66.01 in Windows 10, and Firefox 66.0 in Linux Mint 19.1, as well, the latest Vivaldi-snapshot in both Windows and Linux. The problem is the same in both browsers. Also uploaded this image at Wikisource with explanation. https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/File:T219048.jpg

I also received two automated emails, the numbers are different but I am sure that they are related to this bug.

Everything is fine. Thank you. Please close this report.
The bug is corrected and the ruler displays correctly in the footer. Thanks to all.

Thanks to both of you. I saw the <hr> auto issue, and I have no problem waiting for the "visibility" issue to be resolved however long it takes.

AKlapper, thanks for your instructions. Will do so with future bug reports.
@Aklapper, I must have used a simple bug report form because the fields indicated in the tutorial did not exist.

@Aklapper, this issue occurs on the French Wikisource as well, which means that it occurs on every site that uses the Proofread extension. Now that I work in a language and a website that is less familiar, it requires previewing the work more often that before and thus the number of appended empty lines increases.
Apr 6 2018
@Klapper, Thanks. I don't need and expect instant resolution. I was just curious about the process. For me the inner sanctum of Wikimedia's technical process is a complete mystery. It's sort of a netherworld. :-)

@Aklapper, Just asking what is the status of this issue? Thanks

@Aklapper, I am using the "Extension WikiEditor" 2010, Desktop, "This can be seen when "Enable enhanced editing toolbar" is enabled in Special:Preferences. as mentioned in my previous comment."
Mar 5 2018
@Tpt, I am using the Editor which has the Advanced, Special characters, Help, and Proofread tools, dropdown lists on the top bar. In Preferences/Edit the [Enable enhanced editing toolbar] is checked off.
@Billinghurst, I checked both the main and the author namespaces. No additional lines created when using Preview.

Thanks again for following it up. Now the question remains if it is doable within the Alt-Shift key assignments scheme. The timetable of implementation is less important.

P.S. I am only referring to the desktop.
As an ignorant, I would think that hiding or disabling the radio button would be simple.
I write this to help those who were stuck in Minerva in the Page namespace, where access to the user Preferences is not available. I had a bookmark to the Contributions page where the Minerva user preferences menu worked and thus I was able to switch back to Vector default.

After reading the conversation of T173598, I recommend that the Minerva skin name should include identification of sorts to know whether the conversations are about the desktop 'D' or the mobile 'M' version. After all, the issues are different.
Desktop, Special pages | Version | Installed skins lists Minerva as "A responsive mobile first skin." When I looked for this on my mobile, Minerva is not listed as one of the available skins.

In that case please close this ticket.
As requested by billinghurst, I disabled all gadgets and scripts in my userspace. Also, removed the contents of common.css, but I still get the following
May 4 2017
This was not a gadget problem. I'm still testing my work environment and will post the results here tomorrow.
Don't think its the gadgets because I cleared all gadget settings, cleared the common.js and common.css code and the page load began to function normally. Then began rebuilding my work environment with the gadgets and re-selected my preferences and this did not affect page load speed which remained normal good. I am now restoring snippets of code to locate the cause of the problem.
These are the three warnings in the console when I tried to edit some pages without scripts of common.js and without gadgets.

**MarkTraceur & Zppix, That's exactly what I could use if possible. When I prepare files for upload, I have ready all the necessary info required by the Wizard, except the new (book) category. Having the ability to define a non-existing category before the upload would save several steps afterwards. I realize that a new category also requires a relation to another category, so this must also be specified when creating. Below is a list from which I work. Some categories exist because I created them after the upload.

Please close this ticket. With purging of the caches the images are displayed properly.
Oct 30 2016
Also need some clarification on the bewildering variety of cache clearing options, which does what?:
- There is an option middle of the buttons, on the top right of Index pages: https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Index:Popular_Science_Monthly_Volume_55.djvu. I assume this purges the Commons djvu repository, but I am not sure.
- Gadget: A "*" tab or a "Purge" option within the actions-tab, which purges the page's cache when followed. This adds a purge and a Hard purge control, whatever that means.
- Gadget: Clock and Purge. A clock in the personal toolbar that shows the current time in UTC and be clicked to purge the page.
- Clear one's browser cache.
Just looked at the page and it is OK. But, I disabled my gadgets yesterday. Please keep the ticket open for 24 hours, and let me see if it still be OK as I continue working, with and without the gadgets.

I set preferences edit from 4 (minimum) and to 23 rows up and it does not alter the window size at all. The main textarea height is frozen at 275 pixels. I use Firefox for production but also Chrome/Chromium to check and compare. In this case both browsers are frozen.

Mea culpa. It was not done with malice. But, there should be a mechanism

so? Also, if this feature is so important, why allow a user to turn it off
or on? Furthermore, as far as I understand it, this feature is unique to

@MZMcBride. The password given was a temporary password for 15 minutes or so, and is no longer valid. But since you brought it up, I suggest that Mediawiki programmers/technicians should have access to our editing options and gadget settings for test purposes.
Thanks Danny_B. You are right. It was not checked before I removed all the gadgets, as I kept an screenshot of my gadget selection. Now everything works.
Same issue and solution as https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T139908. It works now.
I suspect that the problem may be with my global login. I have ~95 wikisites attached to my global login. Suggest that I change my password, email it to you to be used for a predetermined time (15 minutes?). Login with my username and see if it's reproducible.
Danny, no offense intended, but I am not User:He7d3r. And, please read the bug report. I have no global, or any user .js or .css and NEVER had Global settings!!! Purged my cache more often than the Spanish inquisition burned the Aztecs and the Jews. . . . and why is this a low priority? I am willing to bet that someone else will notice the problem sooner or later in other Wikisource projects, just as my last bug reported, popped up in other Wikisource projects.

Thanks for forcing me to learn/use the developer's tools. I hope the info was helpful. For me it's a 1000% improvement over my ignorance from when I posted the first bug report. The question is, were the identical issues at the German Wikisource, which resolved their issues?
Let's be clear. My yesterday's comment, reflected the state of the editor then. Now, it seems OK. It must have been patched between now @ 21:10 UTC and 2016-06-30 6:00 UTC.
@Krinkle Here is the requested info, in the order you asked

Nothing changed on english Wikisource, the same problems existed as of 2016-06-30 6:00 UTC.

Was this issue investigated? Is there any additional info missing, which would help to have this issue resolved?
Jun 26 2016
Is there any way to merge this with [Maniphest] T138554? it's about the same issue.
Unchecked all gadgets, cleared my common.js and common.css, but to no avail. The problem is the same. The text layout switches from horizontal on the bottom view, to side by side, and loosing the enhanced editing bar. I always use the vector skin, but also tried with the monobook skin but the problem is the same.

Just to comment to AKlapper and Tpt: I don't know in which time zone/country you both reside, but I need some sleep on occasion. Before this bug report, I didn't know that you wanted the output of Firefox's web web console. This is the contents of the web console when I click to preview the edit changes THE FIRST TIME! on this page:https://en.wikisource.org/w/index.php?title=Page:Popular_Science_Monthly_Volume_48.djvu/869&action=edit
This bug report was changed and some of my comments and the participants were removed.
Also forgot to repeat that there is no problem in Chrome. Only in Firefox. Please read my posts.

The very reason it was posted here first, was because there wasn't anyone available at enWS at the moment to fix it. I have difficulty to believe that such minor issue created such a major storm. After all, I was convinced that Mediawiki staff of programmers were here to help.

Good reply. :-)
I am using Windows at this moment and tested Chrome and Opera extensively. It works fine in bot browsers, so the problem seems to be with Firefox. Another user has this issue intermittently and will ask what browser he's using. We are both able to work and I will continue to probe the issue. Could this be cause by a Firefox extension (addon)?
In Xubuntu 14.04 I opened about 10 pages in sequence in edit mode and it was OK.
Oct 4 2015
I will do that. I am using Microsoft's antivirus and Firefox latest for editing. Now I am on Linux and will try it here as well.
Please accept my my apologies. It's called the 'Enable enhanced editing toolbar' option and it's selectable on the user's Preferences\Editing page. I am using the vector skin. The toolbar appears when opening a page for editing in the Page: namespace. About half of the time, the Proofreading tools segment is missing. I can activate it by re-clicking the 'edit' tab as the page is already open for editing. This problem appeared after the latest 1.27.0-wmf.1 (c606878) 06:32, 1 October 2015 update. I hope this helps.

Would such a break force the toolbars to appear between the header and the footer? Also, Londonjackbooks' common.js code is identical to mine with some minor differences (which I don't believe has anything to do with the problem), and yet my toolbars appear properly and without any problems.
