additionally noting that we're currently auditing indicators on desktop (T263511) in preparation for moving the language switcher. Once we've gotten a bit further along we'll have a better sense of which indicators are present on various wikis, and will probably be more opinionated about if/how to show them on mobile.

@MichaelMaggs it seems clear that this issue is related to some kind of configuration within your account, rather than being a general issue. I would suggest reviewing any gadgets you have enabled, also look into global settings. Going to close this out. Sorry we couldn't be more helpful in locating your specific issue.
@MichaelMaggs did you try the links I provided in an incognito window?

@MichaelMaggs you can see the new desktop version as a logged-out user by adding ?useskinversion=2 to the end of the URL, or by viewing a page on one of our test Wikis (e.g. French). Sorry for not mentioning this before.

@MichaelMaggs thanks for posting the video. That looks to me like the result of some custom CSS. Would you mind trying as a logged-out user, and also in an private/incognito window to see if the same thing happens?
Thanks. People often use this tool and then provide a link to the upload: https://imgur.com/upload
@MichaelMaggs thanks for flagging this. Would you be able to do a video screen capture as you increase and then decrease the width of your browser? For me the width of the column remains consistent (also using Firefox on a Mac). I wonder if there are any user scripts or gadgets you have enabled that could be affecting this?

My initial thought was that we could shift any elements to the area just below the border, opposite from the title, like this:

@Jdlrobson assets have been added to the description

@Jdlrobson here are some assets for you to try out:
I've merged this into T259331 because:
- There is an extra line appearing at the end of the article
this is expected, the line is from the footer

Should the link always go to the article tab? Or should the history tab point to the history tab of another language?
@Johan I think this is the main question. Can you frame this request from a user need / workflow perspective? It may help clarify some of the open questions.

Everything is looking good here: https://patchdemo.wmflabs.org/wikis/8ffa80ac67d564b7881bfe79d77691cb/w/index.php/Main_Page?useskinversion=2

After starting a session begins, if a user presses the search button again (or presses enter) with the search box empty, they are taken to the Advanced Search Page with no results shown (this is recorded in the dataset)
@MNeisler do we have any sense of how this happens? Is it someone typing something, deleting it, then pressing Search/enter?
Ok, well currently this is totally speculative on my part and I think would only be worth investigating if we think do-over searches are somewhat common. @TJones any chance y'all have thought about, or know about, do-over searches (see above comments for context)?

Perhaps a better example to look at since there is more variety in where the icon appears (middle of a line, end of a line, etc.)
Yes that's correct.

thanks for fixing those two @Jdlrobson & apologies for putting the wrong tagline for Thai in there initially

was just noticing that it's common for the search term to remain in the search box once the search has been submitted. I think this makes sense for search experiences where search leads you to a list of results. I'm not sure if it still makes sense in our case where you land on a specific result (rather than a list). Thoughts @RHo @Volker_E @ovasileva? I feel like it might help to reinforce what has just happened, though I'm not sure there's an issue with how it currently works.
@Esanders great point about the icon blending in with the text. I wonder if it needs to be blue?

@Jdlrobson sorry about that, just replaced the Thai tagline
@Jdlrobson I've replaced the Greek tagline SVG in the task description. You should now be good to go to make the final fixes:
- Thai tagline
- Greek tagline
