Block notices are also covered by T209599
This has been resolved by the same fix as T183284.

Argument 1 passed to Elastica\Exception\ResponseException::__construct() must be an instance of Elastica\Request, null given, called in /srv/mediawiki/php-1.33.0-wmf.25/extensions/CirrusSearch/includes/ElasticsearchIntermediary.php on line 204
I think this might be a problem with all dropdown menus – for some reason MenuSelectWidget has a min-height in its styles.
I can reproduce this on Windows 10 as well. The problem happens when typing with a "table selection" (blue overlay covering a table cell); it doesn't happen when typing with a "linear selection" (blinking cursor inside a table cell).
VisualEditor uses parameters as defined in the template's TemplateData. This parameter is documented in https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Template:Citation/doc&action=edit and neither the JSON data nor the human-readable description mention any restrictions on its use. If you want Citoid to stop using it, you should delete this line from it: "issueDate": "issue-date",.
I think being able to resize everything by just increasing the font-size is valuable and convenient. Example use cases:
I'm not familiar with that problem, and I don't recall any relevant tasks… I would prefer if we filed a separate task for it.
Typing "/Sandbox" into the link inspector shouldn't create a link to the "Sandbox" subpage of the current page. It should create a link to the page "/Sandbox" in the main namespace. We do not support any other relative link syntaxes supported by MediaWiki (e.g. try "../Sandbox", it refuses to accept it, but [[../Sandbox]] is a valid link in wikitext).
This no longer seems to be a problem.

I think this might be caused by T209163: Loading an edit page using veaction=edit in single-tab mode changes URL to an incorrect state. We should revisit this task after that is fixed.
Nevertheless, here's the below screenshot of what I described while enabling the new wikitext editor when I clicked the "Edit" button (via local gadget), which then becomes "edit source":

Note that there is an error message:
These are the interfaces you should see (when using any edit link):
I argued for this to be put in "Needs Discussion/Analysis" rather than "Freezer", but on a closer look, I agree with Ed – I'm not sure if this case is worth investigating. I think what I really wanted to discuss was T162291 (nowiki around ISBN caused by copy-paste of large blocks, e.g. copying citations from read mode).
Note also T158360 which proposes that LocalisationUpdate should be undeployed.

This should no longer be a problem after T188823, which allowed the context item labels to wrap.
This task had recent discussion.
I don't think there is anything we could do to improve this?
I can reproduce this issue even when typing Latin characters with input methods disabled!
Per @Schnark I think this is the expected behavior.

No, the underlines come from Minerva (or MobileFrontend) styles related to your section collapsing feature.

At a glance, this might be caused by rGOJUcfaea5347d69: SelectWidget: Allow multiselect mode, add to MenuTagMultiselectWidget.

I think https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/c/mediawiki/extensions/VisualEditor/+/500757 is also necessary to complete this fix?
The patches now only resolve the technical issue of multi-paragraph blockquotes not being editable. I'll file a separate task to consider the toolbar changes later.

This is the followup/hardening change I proposed here earlier.

This has been effectively reverted in Vector in https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/c/mediawiki/skins/Vector/+/500805 as a result of T219864.
The main patch for this change (https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/c/mediawiki/extensions/Citoid/+/483337) is not merged yet, so none of the UI changes described above have happened.
I actually kept digging a bit more. I blamed these lines to find where they came from.
