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.

Terrible, if one doesn't notice the brief


  Sorry! We could not process your edit due to a loss of session data.
  Please try again. If it still doesn't work, try logging out and
  logging back in.

at the top of the page, and the edit box still there, way at the
bottom of the page, one will surely think their click of "save
changes" was successful, as there are our changes right there, and we
didn't hit preview.

So now we must make another possibly long distance modem call and it's
already daytime phone rates.

It's bright, bold red. If your users need something blinking and pink, then
customise the system message yourself; that's what the MediaWiki namespace is for.
