Just thought I'd point out it's not the same issue as https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T220174. The issue is very different to the video provided there, it occurs on desktop, does not occur in reading mode and it did not occur that early. But who knows, they may be linked.

I can't reproduce the edit at all in my sandbox, and I believe my first report was a false alarm caused by confusing markup diff appearance.
@ssastry I don't recall switching at all when I made my Prion edit.
@ssastry I'm back at a standstill, can't reproduce the bug again. I'll keep testing.
@ssastry The reporting user didn't experience the bug herself (to my knowledge) but encountered numerous other people's edits being affected.

This bug affects Wikipedia, Wikimedia, Wiktionary and probably other WMF websites (but the MediaWiki website itself seems to be case sensitive with links, so this bug is not possible).

They vandalised practically all of the tasks I started. :(

"can't find family: Sans"
That's interesting. In Inkscape, which I use to make my maps, "Sans" is the default text font. However, a warning icon shows next to it (to indicate that it doesn't exist on my computer). The text essentially shows as Arial in Inkscape, but after uploading to Wikimedia Commons, it shows as some Times New Roman-looking font for me. I try to switch all my text to Arial before I upload, but some Sans must have crept in there.

Even when I was uploading the same file multiple times to try to fix it, the thumbnail of the previous version suddenly began to work but the current version never loaded.
I don't know why this keeps happening. I upload an image, the direct file loads fine, but thumbnails and the Media Viewer fail to load every time, until magically it fixes itself after a while.

Yes. I was just saying that it doesn't "mitigate" anything. It goes with the way it is on Mac. I also wanted to highlight the danger it serves to unsaved content, which could be lost.

Just wanted to comment: you don't "mitigate" this by giving the primary action focus. That is the opposite of what Windows does. Windows always pre-selects the least dangerous option, such as "Cancel" or "No". I'd expect this to at least be the case for VisualEditor, considering the content it regularly deals with.

It seems the problem has fixed itself.(?)
