Jidanni added a comment to T263746: Some languages entries listed several times for captions on Commons.

Here we see some languages require moving the mouse over each one to distinguish one from another.
And for other languages even that isn't enough.

In our mobile browser if we go into settings and click desktop view, we see what the problem originates from. Apparently we are seeing the last three items in each table row: the picture, what it was uploaded by, and the current status: if it is a current picture it is "yes".

If there is there was a space already in front of $1 (i.e., $1 includes a space built in) as you say(?), then preceding words wouldn't get glued tohttps://example.com .
Same if there was a space at the end, then https://example.comwouldn't get glued to the following word.

Maybe if the $1 (itself) contained a space in the front and back of it, it would magically solve the problem for all 256 etc. languages (multiplied by five or six form items. We're talking about thousands of problems solved!. (At the price of not being able to occasionally glue things together.))
Of course a second compressor program needs to come along and reduce any multiple spaces back to a single one.

Yes, using an incognito window, the page loads fine, in Mobile mode of course. This proves that reason why my browser is in a weird state is that I must have swallowed a cookie due to some tampering I did earlier. Doesn't matter. What does matter is to help users get out of that desktop mode if they ever end up in it.

Anyway most important is to give the user a big button at the top that says switch back to mobile view. Because he certainly doesn't remember why his browser is in this weird state. And he has little chance of finding the magic cure way down to the bottom of the page where it says says mobile view.

OK, in the URL I used sort=last_edit_asc and what do you know, it worked.

Anyways, To reproduce, simply go to a page that does not have any discussion at all yet and hit the red word Discussions; you'll see throughout the process we think we are creating a new discussion...
