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.

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.

Description Bill Mitchell 2007-02-11 05:32:47 UTC
Using firefox, wikiedit a page.
Enter some text. e.g., aaabbccc
Edit->Search (Ctrl-F) for some text. e.g. bb
Observe the text is found and highlited.
In the firefox-Find bar, enable 'Highlight all'
Observe highlight color changes.
Attempt to place wikiedit-cursor within a highlited area.
Observe failure.

Workaround: Disable 'Highlight-all' to edit a search target

If we can find an acceptable workaround, we should.  And if this only occurs at
Wikimedia sites, then we probably can somehow.  Can you confirm that this
doesn't happen elsewhere, Mr. Mitchell?
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2007-02-13 21:29:52 UTC
I can confirm this happens on a trivial test page:


While annoying, it's not a MediaWiki-related problem.
