Description Meno25 2008-02-13 01:14:37 UTC
Items in several special pages are not numbered correctly in the Arabic (ar) Wikipedia. These special pages are: [[ar:Special:Ancientpages]], [[ar:Special:Fewestrevisions]], [[ar:Special:Mostlinkedcategories]], [[ar:Special:Mostlinked]], [[ar:Mostlinkedtemplates]] and many others. (You can say that nearly all special pages suffer from this bug.)

Bug description:

For example in [[ar:Special:Wantedcategories]] numbering goes normally from item 1 to item 120 then start again from 1

119. item name
120. item name
1. item name
2. item name


1-On reloading page number at which the list breaks differs (I tried it several times and it changed from 120 to 73 to 202, etc). 
2-I noticed this using Firefox. I can't reproduce this using IE and didn't try other browsers.
3-This bug affects other Arabic wikis: arwiktionary, arwikibooks, arwikisource, etc.

Confirmed in Firefox 3.0b2; can't reproduce in Safari 3.0.4 or Opera 9.20.

I'm seeing a break in the list at #167 here:

Pretty good chance this is some Gecko bug affecting Firefox specifically.

Problem does not occur for me, if Javascript is disabled.
With Javascript enabled, the break seems to occur at a random number. A reload of the page shows different numberings of the lines.

Comment 3 Meno25 2011-01-12 11:26:36 UTC
Seems to have been fixed.

Firefox 3.6.13 under Linux Ubuntu 10.10
