I can also reproduce this on mediawiki.org and de.wikisource. All of these wikis have the SingleEditTab config in common, so perhaps this has some strange effect on the focus. The focus actually isn't even on the dialog, you can't close it by pressing ESC.

The "real" solution of course would be to enable Flow, use it for all pages in project namespace that have discussions on them, and then enable VE for everything else, (i.e. the same configuration as on mediawiki.org) but unfortunately that isn't going to happen.

Additional benefit: I think there have been some cases where users switched from section editing to visual editing and blindly clicked on "Discard changes and switch", and only noticed when too late that they just lost their edit. Showing the confirmation only when it really is necessary will probably prevent this.

There is an important difference between wgMonthNames and mw.language.months.names: wgMonthNames uses the language of the wiki, while mw.language.months.names is in the language of the user.
This probably also means that sorting dates in tables is broken when the user has an interface language different from the content.

But generally I'm not sure that two very similar options are a good idea. On which basis does a user - especially a new user - decide which of the two wikitext modes he wants to switch to? Having more choice can make things harder, not easier.

Schnark added a comment to T213522: Reconsider URL changes done by Visual Diff.

This would make it unlikely that URLs with accidental diffmode parameters are shared, while it would be automatically included in most cases where a user wants to share the exact mode.

I don't think this works, because the diffmode is remembered in user options. This would effectively stop the diffmode ever being appended after the first time the user changes it to their preference. If the user wanted to share a diffmode they would have to change the mode twice.

Schnark added a project to T217494: Tabs being forced down and crashing with page title: VisualEditor-Initialisation.

The label for editing the local page as wikitext is actually "Create source" (see the HTML code), and only gets changed to "Add local description source" by JS (probably VE initialization code). This changes the width of the tabs, but the check whether collapsing some tabs is necessary doesn't happen again.
Ideally, the same message would be used both on server and client side, or at least a re-check should be triggered (I actually run a $(window).trigger('resize') on most pages, which fixes this issue).

Additionally, if the user has NWE enabled, the old wikitext editor is still used for protected pages (but NWE loads after switching to visual and back).

And if the user doesn't have NWE enabled, switching back to wikitext gives an error: "Error loading data from server: readonly."

This doesn't happen for me locally, only on Beta, which has been stuck in readonly mode for two weeks now.

Schnark added a comment to T214976: Can't select across block images in Firefox.

I can't even select as much as you.
When I draw a selection with the mouse past a reference or a "reference needed", the current selection collapses and starts as a new selection after the reference.
If I use the keyboard with "cursor right", the same happens.
Only if I use the keyboard with "cursor down", I have a chance to select something including references.

Schnark updated subscribers of T214534: VisualEditor sometimes fails to load (script load.php not loaded).

Since rOMWC2e5871e9d6e7: Bump $wgResourceLoaderMaxQueryLength to 5,000 the query can have a length of 5000, while by default MediaWiki will not go beyond 2000. Given that the URL mentioned above has a total length of 2403 this seems like a sensible maximum that should not be increased.

Schnark added a comment to T214854: mw.loader.using is not loading QUnit properly?.

There are strange race conditions when loading QUnit asynchronously, as it usually starts immediately, will then fail on the missing tests (which are defined only afterwards), and then be confused on the newly added tests. What you want to do is:

Schnark added a comment to T214675: Diff view and edit section view ignore whitespace.

Interesting, in edit view they are indeed collapsed to just a few spaces, but they definitely are there: Place the cursor after "locali e spettacoli dal vivo.", press Shift+End to select everything to the end of the line, copy and paste somewhere else, e.g. a text editor. Then you will see 26784 spaces.

All users reporting this error use Firefox, so I assume it is something Firefox specific, perhaps related to its tracking protection.

Schnark added a comment to T214467: Articles with <graph> can not be openned in VE.

I assume that message is something like "Loading <script> failed"? We have a similar report on de.wiki (https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Fragen_zur_Wikipedia#Probleme_bei_VE/Wikitext_2017_und_Citoid), and I had similar issues a while ago, but not recently, and I don't think it's related to graphs. My best guess is that sometimes the tracking protection in Firefox or something else blocks loading that combined JS code, and VE waits for it infinitely.

Regarding the possible relation to paste: It doesn't make any difference whether I selected something before or not, especially if I did select something, the middle-click does not paste it.
By the way, this does not happen with links.

Very interesting. I can reproduce with your example and many other Russian articles, but not all. E.g. https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zing!_Went_the_Strings_of_My_Heart?veaction=editsource has the categories in preview. I never had this issue in German Wikipedia, and I can't reproduce in English and French, either.

Schnark added a comment to T199740: Bold and big not highlighted correctly in the 2017WTE.

I just found the reason why bold is disabled: T184467 (according to the title not only IE). So it seems that neither bold nor big is possible (at least not until font rendering in browsers improves a lot, which would make bold possible again). Is it worth keeping this task open until then?

Schnark added a project to T212680: Cursor off by several lines where the text is edited in new wikitext mode: MediaWiki-extensions-CodeMirror.

For me in Firefox there is no problem with that page.
A very wild guess: It's caused by the italic formatting (like T184467 was by bold). Can you test whether the issue is fixed by adding body .cm-em { font-style: normal; } as CSS? You can do so by oping the browser console and executing mw.util.addCSS('body .cm-em {font-style:normal;}').
Apart from that, there are currently T188839: When editing source, sometimes characters get put in strange places if you have too many characters on a line (due to space collapsing), T205689: NWE+CodeMirror: Notice about unflagged revision can cause different line breaks and T203638: Different widths in NWE+CodeMirror can cause text and color to fall out of sync open.
