Description Robin Green 2010-10-28 07:48:08 UTC
I was editing the subsection "Privacy of kept history data" of the following page

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_browsing_history

when it was at this revision:

http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Web_browsing_history&oldid=393373130

I pressed the View Changes button and saw some changes to other parts of the page - which confused me initially, as I couldn't have possibly made such changes, as I wasn't editing those sections at the time. Then I quickly realised it was an edit conflict, so I pressed the Save button to make it go to the edit conflict screen, which it did.

However, the upper edit box only contains the first section (the anonymous intro section) - which is *not* the section I had been editing, by the way. The lower box boes contain the full article, I think.

I have some user scripts installed in my user.js on Wikipedia, so they may be affecting or causing this bug.

No, they both contain the full article: the upper area current revision, the bottom your own. I wasn't able to understand who is who and who did what in the page history. 
I'm marking this as working for me; please reopen if this happens again and you have more precise information and ideally a screenshot.

This is indeed a problem which should be addressed separately with a feature request to improve the show diff.
