Description David Benbennick 2005-07-07 13:59:23 UTC
I'm using IE6.  When I try to delete an image, I type a reason for 
deletion, then hit Enter.  The browser acts like it's loading a new 
page (the silly icon animates, and a message appears in the status 
bar).  After a few seconds it finishes, but the same page is there, 
and the image hasn't been deleted.  I have to actually click on 
the "Confirm" button to get it to delete.

I don't have this problem when deleting regular pages, or when 
editing.  In both cases, I can hit Enter from the summary field.

I have no idea why this problem exists.  Perhaps the fault is on my 
end.  Does anyone else have this problem?

I can confirm that it does not work with IE 6.0.2800.1106 under windows 2000.
The POST is sent though but never processed.

Comment 3 Jan Schütze 2005-11-10 21:46:04 UTC
It does work for me as admin using IE 6.0. Is this bug already solved?
Comment 4 Rob Church 2005-11-11 11:33:55 UTC
Confirmed not working with Internet Explorer 6.0.2900 under Windows XP
Professional using MediaWiki 1.5.1. Not a problem under Firefox, however.
Comment 5 Rob Church 2005-11-11 11:42:12 UTC
Still also a problem under MediaWiki 1.5.2.

Confirmation checkbox is gone now; the submit button had been
coopted to replace it in the submission variables, but some
user agents don't go looking for a default button when you
submit by hitting 'enter' in a text entry widget. Just check
that the form was posted; we already have the edit token check
to confirm that it's not a forged request.
