The main filter menu is a very particular case because it's very long and we've engineered some very particular behavior for it to account for that fact. So I'm glad it's fixed.
I figured out how to type in the language I need after selecting a project (not the best UX, I agree). But on Chrome, selecting the language I want this way doesn't work. Try the following:

@Pginer-WMF, would Trizek's solution work for you? If so, we can move this back to be triaged again.
Hi @Darwinius, from your screenshot it doesn't look like this is your problem, so this is unlikely but I'll just check because we found a regression on Contributions today that is messing with some users. It's described in T182911. Do you, perhaps, have the "Hide probably good edits" preference turned on? If not, please disregard.
First, this has probably always been this way. But no matter.

...We have two options here: either we change the target setting, which will cause the new UI to load on mobile, or we make the server realize that the new UI is not going to load on mobile and stop trying. Long term, the former would be nice, but short term I think we should do the latter, because of how broken the new UI is on mobile right now.

...We should have an option to disable those at all or only show them once, not in every wikis we visit.
Ingenious idea @Pginer-WMF! And you're right that the apparatus for this is already in place, though the signal we send now is subtle.
We classified this as being blocked by global preferences for the following reason: on any given wiki, there are only 4 or so notifications that you will ever get that are caused by this feature. So it seemed unlikely that @MF-Warburg was suggesting we create a whole apparatus so as not to be bothered by 4 notifications.

I understand that what I'm seeing is not right. I just don't understand what I'm seeing. The "other review tools" is part of the New Filters for Edit Review UX. But the tools on the version you're looking at are not the New Filters tools. So what's wrong here is not precisely that you can't use that link to close the box and hide the links. It's that you're seeing the link at all. In other words, you're seeing a mix of the new UX and the old UX.

So if I understand your request, it's that you want to turn off the Revision Scoring preferences on the Contributions page, but only when you are viewing your own contributions. Is that right?
It's true that this basic concept has confused some users at first, since they are accustomed to clicking in order to hide instead of include...

Hi Jon. I'm sure this is a different issue from T178194, but I don't really understand the distinction. Can you please explain?
We have made some improvements to these tabs since @matmarex wrote this task. But at this time we have not schedule the wholesale refactoring that we envisioned at one point in T172350 and its sub-task.
Opting out of the beta works fine on en.wiki but not Wikidata. For me.

Hi guys. This sounds valuable but I'm not sure I understand the project or the request fully. Can you say a little more, please, about what you have in mind to do and what kind of help you need?
- I did not know we couldn't do character counts for truncation. I thought we could.... Hm. So, what is the relationship between K and characters? Doesn't that vary a lot (I have a vague recollection that asian characters require more...). Anyway, what does 120k look like? The goal was to stop these fom running on more than a couple of lines.
- Three dots instead of four is fine.
- I don't understand your comments about links and templates. Here's the deal: some of these descriptions include long-form URLs (e.g., see the en.wiki tag dashboard.wikiedu.org [2.0]). I was just hoping we could skip over actual URLs like this. Links like "hist" are also useless but less objectionable, I suppose.
That was actually kind of knotty. It's not really about Live Update—it's about any action that the user takes after the log out in a different browswer. But we do have to also make it so that any Live Update update is considered an "action." @Catrope and @Etonkovidova, you might want to have a look and make sure the solutions I've recommended make sense to you. They are based on what the system did before the New Filters.

We wanted to do this but ran out of time. There are designs for how to implement—though we might have to go back to putting the # of days to search and # of results to show controls on separate panels.
The Triage team says that the problem here is that adding the New Filters UX to the Contributors page is more work than it appears. It looks similar, but the back end is different. Also, users can use the Newcomers on RC page.
@SBisson, I'll summarize those of Elena's notes from above that I'd like to see addressed if they can be. if they can't be, please explain briefly and we'll decide which can be skipped.
