Summary Field Not Editable While CodeMirror Is Enabled

Using Firefox on MediaWiki versions 1.28 while CodeMIrror is enabled typing in the Summary text box does not work. The focus just keeps changing back to the main editing textbox field. If I disable CodeMirror using the button on the toolbar above the text field I can then edit the Summary textbox.That's a work around though. Would it be possible to create a bug to fix this issue? Thank you

Hi @Sorvis - thanks for reporting the bug. I'll file a ticket for it.

Using Firefox on English Wikipedia, I am able to type in the Edit summary box with CodeMirror enabled, but when I click on one of the character insert buttons (provided by the CharInsert gadget, IIRC), as I do with most of my edit summaries to get the "→" character (as in: "somethng" → "something"), it always inserts into the article edit box even when when focus is in the Edit summary box. This does not occur when using the User:Remember the dot/Syntax highlighter gadget that I've traditionally used, so I need to go back to that until this is fixed.

Thanks for reporting this, Dan. Another of the many weird bugs that are coming up on Firefox. :( I'll create a ticket.

Sorvis: I haven't been able to reproduce this bug. What OS and version of Firefox are you using? Can you try it with "?safemode=1" in the URL (to disable gadgets).

Sorvis (talkcontribs)

@KaldariI'm using Firefox 56.0 (32-bit) on Windows 7. With ?safemode=1 in the URL it still does not work.

I am also seeing this problem in Chrome 61.0.3163.100

Are there any logs anyplace I could look at to help us determine the cause? This is on a custom wiki so perhaps there is some other issue at cause here.

Can you also tell me the entire version string for CodeMirror from the Special:Version page?

@Kaldari The version string is: 3.4.0 (0601c77) 20:02, 24 October 2016
