Redrose64 added a comment to T46609: Stop adding xml:lang attributes to HTML5 pages.

It's not a template. Have a look at https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia:Sandbox&oldid=801426457 where the wikisource contains the line

Redrose64 reopened T46609: Stop adding xml:lang attributes to HTML5 pages as "Open".

Yes, I tested it recently, and it's happening when the lang= attribute is used on both span and div elements, so I assume that all other elements are also affected.

This edit [1] notified me, even though it's a just a modification to an existing post - one {{-}} template added, four newlines added, some colons removed. I had already been notified when that text was first added [2].

Redrose64 added a comment to T135808: "Start editing" popup can't be dismissed without clicking "Start editing".

How do you "manually move the focus to the button"? Tabbing does nothing; hovering over the box (it is not visually styled as a button, so it is not a button but a link with a large hot-spot) changes the mouse pointer to a pointed finger; so it can't be clicked in without actioning the blue "Start editing" link, which, with the presence of the black text "Switch to the visual editor" on the row immediately above, gives the impression that VE will be launched.

The Escape key certainly does not dismiss the dialog, at least not in Firefox 46 with MonoBook.

Redrose64 added a comment to T135808: "Start editing" popup can't be dismissed without clicking "Start editing".

When first confronted by this, I thought "Ah, a welcome message for an editor with seven years experience and more than 146,000 edits (not to mention being an admin since 2011) - this just has to be them trying to get me to change my methods". So I got the immediate impression that if I clicked "Start editing", I would be forcibly switched to VE (something I had opted out of as soon as it became possible to), and that there was no way of continuing with the proper Wikitext editor. So it needs an obvious dismiss link, or an X at top right, something that makes it clear that you can continue as you were.

This is a security issue. If an admin logs in on a public computer - like in a library or in their office's common area - they try to log out but don't notice that they didn't: then the next person using that machine has admin rights on WP which they probably aren't entitled to.

I get this on enwiki, cywiki, dewiki, frwiki, commons, meta and probably all the others. On all Wikimedia projects, my time zone is always set to "Use wiki default (UTC)", "Use wiki default (Europe/Berlin)", "Use wiki default (Europe/Paris)" or similar, if available - which is what I set right from the start (May 2009 in the case of enwiki).

No, I normally use MonoBook, but just now I switched to Vector, edited File:First Minister of Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon.jpg and immediately got two pairs of "Open in Media Viewer"/cogwheel link boxes above the "This file is unlicensed for use on Wikipedia" box. Also happened with the next two file description pages that I edited too (also Vector).

Well, since the change to Echo, the orange bar hasn't appeared at all. But as I recall, the posts at VPT around the time that Echo was deployed basically said "it's been replaced and we're not bringing it back". So I suppose this is a non-issue.

Redrose64 added a comment to T53303: Notifications: Getting multiple "Thank"s from one user for the same edit is possible (double/duplicate).

OK, I've just managed to send a double thanks when viewing a page history. The first time I clicked "yes", it didn't change to "thanked", so I presumed that my mouse pointer had slipped off the hot spot, so I carefully repositioned it and clicked again. There was again no change, so I checked my thanks log to see if it had gone through - and found these two entries. Upon returning to the page history, I found that the "yes" had changed to "thanked", so there is some sort of delay in updating the screen during which mouse events are still accepted and processed.

It may be entirely expected behavior for you - but where is it documented so that I (and others) might expect it? I also do not know what Upstream is (although Aklapper apparently does), nor who Phacility might be. Please remember that I am not a Phabricator developer, nor even a MediaWiki developer. I'm just an ordinary Wikipedia editor who has been trying to help at WP:VPT for over five years now, with over 3,000 edits to that page alone. At VPT, when somebody reports a problem and we advise people that a task already exists on Phabricator that covers their problem, we would like them to be able to read the whole thread without having to resort to undocumented workarounds in order to do so.

The problem (which still exists, another example below) shows when viewing a Phabricator task, not when (for example) using Wikipedia, that is why I filed it as a Phabricator problem. Of that I am certain: but I have no idea what particular part of Phabricator causes this; I don't know what Sprint extension is; it was not me that first decided that it was a Sprint extension issue.
