gh87 closed T269867: Pop-up notification (or another feature) telling users remaining time before or when time expires and asking them to modify expiry time as Declined.

Per MusikAnimal, maybe there are other ways besides pop-up feature to expose temporarily watched pages. I guess relying a lot on Notifications isn't a good idea. Meanwhile, I realize that this task would be reincarnated into a smaller or better written task, so I'm closing the task I created as "declined" for now.

In other words, going to Special:EditWatchlist is adequate enough? If so, then a user would have to very frequently watch over the list many, many times, right?

Hi, where exactly? Which page are we talking about? Any, like using the Notifications system?

gh87 added a comment to T266682: VisualEditor freezes (in one Extension: page).

Using Firefox 84.0.1 (latest to this date), I am able to reproduce method A:

  1. Go to "Editing" section of user settings
  2. De-check "Temporarily disable the visual editor while it is in beta" option if checkmarked
  3. Select "Show me both editor tabs" in the Editing mode menu
  4. Go to "Beta features" tab and checkmark/enable "New wikitext mode"
  5. Click "Save" button
  6. Go to https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Graph/Demo/IndexChart
  7. Click the "≡" (triple bar) icon on the upper-right corner of Firefox
  8. Open "Inspector" from "Web developer" sub-menu
  9. Click the "Edit source" tab of the page
  10. The source editor loads well
  11. Then click "Edit" (to open VisualEditor)
  12. Somehow, the chart doesn't appear, and NWE's toolbar appears in the VisualEditor
  13. In Inspector, you'll see the following pink message: Uncaught TypeError: spec.data[0].values is undefined and load.php:753:885

the least I have done was clicking "older 50" and then click "newer 50" instead of clicking "back" button on a browser. That's how I was able to see newer contributions more effectively, though this method is annoying.

The action=watch url is more convenient than the other (editing source) method honestly. However, I have to go from page to page to implement the time expiry change on every individual article, which annoys me more.

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. Seems that ?action=edit is used in address bar. BTW, I was using Chrome 80 (latest stable version as of date).

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.

May be worth investigating whether this issue is specific to dewiki, since according to T245696 the same article(s) appear correctly in other wikis.
Also, everything appears to work properly in the new mobile-html output, so this issue may be moot once we switch over fully.

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?

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.

gh87 reopened T190991: Grey lines appearing while scrolling up the 2010 wikitext editor window with a scroll wheel under Timeless skin in IE11 as "Open".

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

Restricted Application changed the subtype of T203564: [BUG] Windows Edge 17 and IE11 do not display info icons from "Task" to "Bug Report".

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.
