As mentioned at T190989#5924922, refreshing a NWE source page while using MinervaNeue skin reverts back temporarily to one of old wikitext editors. Then I found out that I was able to recently reproduce the issue on other skins, like Vector and Timeless. BTW, I was using Chrome 80 (latest stable version as of date).
Tested the VisualEditor under the MinervaNeue skin. No issues found while refreshing the page.
For pre-2017 WikiEditors: Okay, I hope. Tested out; seems that everything is okay for me. Somehow, the MinervaNeue skin adjusts well with older wikitext editors. If I were to click the "Edit" button, I would edit just the lead section, not the whole article. I can't tell whether that's a separate issue or already filed separately.
@Jdlrobson To go to 2003 WikiEditor, which lacks a toolbar, you must first go to your Preferences settings, then go to the Editing tab, and then de-check the "Enable the editing toolbar". Finally, save your preferences. Optionally, you can click the "Enable the legacy (2006) editing toolbar" option at the Gadgets tab.

I tested the similar issue at one of random articles from ABC News website. If using an iPad or iPhone, click/tap the blue "Comments" button, type in anything lengthy, double-tap anything you entered in the comments box, and then scroll down. I captured the issue with the video, but the website is copyrighted. Therefore, I can tell you as much as I can in my ability.

@matmarex The browse that was displayed in GIF "desktop site" image was Google Chrome. I don't think the issue is limited to just the Apple Safari browser, is it?
retested the Special:Search page on both mobile and desktop sites.
Good news: Highlighting, i.e. double-clicking or holding down, the words is precise at edit summary and "Email this user" page. In other words, no issues in those pages.

Sorry, but the gerrit code didn't fix the problem. The issue still persists as seen below:

Microsoft Edge Beta (Chromium-based) has been released for Windows 7, 8, and 10. I tested the Wizard with the Chromium-based Edge, and I see the icons seen in the below screenshot.Does the EdgeHTML-based Edge, different from above, still have the icon issue?

If you use the IE11 on either Windows 7, 8 or 10 (if 10, then enable IE11 via Edge), and if you enable the 2010 wikitext editor, you scroll up the editor and then see the grey lines. The grey lines immediately disappear when you move the mouse cursor or scroll down the editor.

I see that the feature has gone live, i.e. finally out of beta.
Apr 12 2019
I see that "Edit" changed into another pencil icon (seen next to an article title).However, clicking that button while enabling the NWE still results the same as before.
Apr 11 2019
Oh... yeah. Sorry, I wasn't specific or clear enough.

I now realize that the "Add an  link for the lead section of a page" option is not part of the MediaWiki software. Rather it's a local gadget.

@Liuxinyu970226 I recently repeated the steps at the Microsoft Edge 41.16299.371.0 (EdgeHTML 16.16299) on Windows 10 by dragging-and-dropping and found no similar issues there. On the contrary, the same issue persists at IE11 on Windows 10.

I would like to, responding to this task, write a separate task requesting a preferential option to disable/opt-out the puzzle (CodeMirror) icon, which would also prevent loading the feature. But then I figure that I would like to request it here first instead. It's almost similar to opt-in/opt-out function of the Beta Feature version of the CodeMirror feature, but it's not Beta.

That was toward those interested in this task, including you. Almost forgot: the Edittools at en-Wikinews has not been properly working.

@Samwilson I guess I meant both.

Can edits made at eventually deleted pages be logged as well?
Nov 8 2018
Can CodeMirror be disabled from IE and Edge? Must I create a separate task to request it? The problems using CodeMirror in IE11 still persist for months since Com Tech gave up on fixing them; probably the same for Edge.

Scenario B now becomes impossible to reproduce, but I can still reproduce steps of Scenario A.
Nov 3 2018
The issue still persists when the VisualEditor mode is disabled, so I think the task should be reopened.

@TheDJ Can charinsert gadgets in other projects like Wikimedia Commons be also modified, or have they been already done?

@Numbermaniac The issue with using the features in IE11 is worse than in other browsers; other issue you raised should be separated as it looks minor (to me).

VE is still in beta on Wikimedia Commons.

Right now, I no longer see the feature in the "Beta" tab. I clicked the highlighter button on the toolbar. This means that the feature is graduated out of beta for LTR wikis.

@jeblad I hate to admit that "Enable" is confusing and somewhat misleading, but I didn't wrote this task for the same purpose you opposed. Rather this is for finding ways to have the mode opted-in or opted-out in 2003 editor without using a toolbar. I changed the title and the description to reduce confusion.

@Deskana My apologies for not answering the "edit tab" question. I think I was using the single-tab mode when I enabled the "temporarily disable VE" option.

I still see those blue buttons label-less after clicking them. I'm on IE11 at Windows 7.

Is OOUI related to this? I see changes were made to modernize the layout. Moreover, I thought about adding the OOUI tag.

@Deskana I don't know why you marked it as "Resolved". Redirects are still un-editable at various browsers on Windows 7. Another example is https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Yoghurt&redirect=no
