Thank you for your ongoing use of the TinyMCE extension and also reporting this issue. The problem is, in fact, a bug in Firefox (see here). This was fixed in version 84 of Firefox, I believe, which is why you no longer get the problem in version 86.

Hi @Nilasae , that's no problem at all. It's useful to see where users are having problems anyway and problems are how we learn. I'm really pleased you are using our extension and please do let me know if you have any more question or issues. B.T.W. I released version 1.0.8 on my development GitHub master branch over the weekend with a couple of bug fixes so you may wish to move up to that when you can?

Thank you for using the TinyMCE extension and taking the time to raise this bug report.
I did notice something strange in your example code. Every line except the first starts with a space. According to the mediawiki documentation here (see sections on Bullet Lists and Preformatted Text) and here (see section Wiki Table Markup Summary, first point after the table) list markup and table markup should start on a new line. Also, space before a new line creates a preformatted block.
This is the standard we have applied in the TinyMCE extension.
Although your code does seem to be interpreted as a table by Mediawiki, I am not sure you can rely on that behaviour as it doesn't confirm to what is described in the documentation. Unfortunately, it is impossible for me to be able to test every alternative to what the documentation describes. I tried the wiki markup without spaces at the start of each line and, in my test system at least, it seems to work correctly.
Later this year I plan to upgrade the TinyMCE extension to support the new parser distributed with mediawiki 1.35 which should make it a lot easier to reproduce exactly how Mediawiki renders wiki markup as html. If you are able to work without the spaces at the start of a line until then, my preference would be to do that. Let me know though if this causes a major problem for you?

This is an ancient task referring to a prior incarnation of the TinyMCE extension which I believe is no longer valid for the current version.

Version 1.0 of extension TinyMCE is available in Mediawiki extensions pages
Solved in version 1.0
This should no longer happen in version 1.0
The new version is available now on the TinyMCE extension page. It is a bit different from the previous version so it is probably worth re-reading the installation and usage documentation..

Thank you for trying this extension and also bringing this problem to my attention.

I just added a patch to Gerrit with a fix for this. It will need to reviewed and accepted before the change is made to the master branch. However, if you'd like, or need, to try it sooner you can download the pactch from the link in the gerritbot comment above.
I hope it works well for you, but do note the comment about css above as things may not look exactly as you'd expect after the drop/paste.
B.T.W. did you notice their is an 'image upload' button of the TinyMCE menu bar if you just wish to upload a file from your local disk or a URL?
Hope you are enjoying the extension and please do let me know if you've any other suggestions/comments.
Kind regards, Duncan

Thank you for your request, this is indeed a very important feature for the TinyMCE extension. In fact it used to be that one could drag/drop or copy/paste from an HTML source into the TinyMCE editor and it would automatically upload all the images.
Somewhere along the line I must have made a change which has broken that feature, so I will try to fix it and post here when I'm done.
There is a separate problem with drag/drop copy/paste from HTML into the TinyMCE editor. This is because the copy/drag part of the operation doesn't pick up the CSS definitions for the classes in the html being copied/dragged. As a result what is pasted/dropped in the TinyMCE editor may not 'look' like the source document.
This may not be a problem for you, especially if your source document is a local wiki. I will fix the upload and then we can see if this fixes the issue for you?
Alternatively, if you are looking to transfer the content of a local wiki to a remote one, then there are other options for doing that (see, for example here). Bulk transfers of pages and files between wikis is a little outside the scope of the TinyMCE extension. If you need help on doing that it might be advisable to ask on the MediaWiki-l mailing list, where you will get much better advice than I can give!
Otherwise, check back and I will post here when I've fixed the drag/drop copy/paste upload feature of TinyMCE
Kind regards, Duncan

Hi, thank you for retesting and letting me know.
Jan 28 2020
Thanks for the quick response. Due to a misunderstanding on my part, fixes to the code haven't been backported to previous releases. I'm sorry this wasn't clear from the documentation until recently when I added the compatibility policy is 'master'.
The background to this misunderstanding is explained in the dialogue I had with James Forrester in the comments on this patch.
Would you try the current master branch to see if you still get this problem? This should work with mediawiki 1.31.6. I apologise for any inconvenience, Duncan.
Hi, I just tried this with Mediawiki 1.31 and the most recent TinyMCE master and everything seems to be working OK. It might be that a recent change has solved the problem or maybe you are using a different version of mediawiki. Would you let me know which versions you are using? Thanks

OK now I get it, I think. I guess you added this project so that issues etc with the TinyMCE extension that I mention can be tracked. Thanks for that.
Hi, I'm new here so I hope I've responded appropriately? Have you seen the extension TinyMCE for Mediawiki that might meet your needs? I believe it works on Mediawiki versions from 1.23 to at least 1.31.
