Wikimedia Bugzilla is closed!

Wikimedia has migrated from Bugzilla to Phabricator. Bug reports should be created and updated in Wikimedia Phabricator instead. Please create an account in Phabricator and add your Bugzilla email address to it.
Wikimedia Bugzilla is read-only. If you try to edit or create any bug report in Bugzilla you will be shown an intentional error message.
In order to access the Phabricator task corresponding to a Bugzilla report, just remove "static-" from its URL.
You could still run searches in Bugzilla or access your list of votes but bug reports will obviously not be up-to-date in Bugzilla.

1. Other pages do work
2. Loggin/ou doesn't change anything
3. Using IE7 instead of Firefox doesn't change anything

If a 'hot link' can be created to content from an other wiki then the edit
button should also redirect to that wiki, right? Is a bug already filed for
something like that or is the 'hot link' a hack just for wikipedia?

if the edit button would go to another project, that would be utterly confusing.
You may not have an account there, the user interface may be in another
language, you don't know customs, templates, categories... no, not a good idea.

An automatic redirect like that would be to drastic in the current set-up
(multiple logins) so a message like this would be better:

"This is a file from the Wikimedia Commons. You can edit the description when
you visit the edit-page on Wikimedia Commons."

You can call it a feature, but the current method really seems like a bug.
