Some problems are a consequence of using user scripts and gadgets which need some fixes. There is a guide available with steps how you can identify such code, which could fix your issue so that you do not waste your time reporting it.

Reporting a JavaScript bug

See also: Help:Locating broken scripts

When you encounter a bug that may be related to JavaScript, do your best to identify error messages and copy them into the bug report.

It's especially important to provide all the information you have, because even the system administrators will have zero access to any error log. If you are unsure whether a feature you are using is based on JavaScript, try disabling JavaScript.

It's always helpful to include a screenshot with your report. It's often the easiest way to identify which feature you're talking about, and can often provide information which can help narrow down the error. Take care to hide any information you don't want to share, like other open browsers tabs or minimised chat windows.

If the problem is in the code of a user script or gadget itself, then Phabricator might not be the place where the problem will get handled.[1] Someone might redirect you to the talk page of the script (if the problematic script is identified).
