Sorry, I haven't read m:WMDE Technical Wishes/ReferencePreviews#Try the beta feature. The answer is there.

Hello! I have enabled the "Reference preview" in Beta. However, I've decided to remove it. Example: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tonna_galea. The problem: when I hover over a reference, two previews appear:

  1. The first preview is the one that you could see earlier.
  2. The second preview is the new preview from "Reference previews".

There should be only one preview, not two. All previews have the same content on them. The placement of the two previews is different. Sometimes you can see two previews and the first one hides the second one, sometimes you can see every preview.

(I've tested it on ru-wiki and on en-wiki).

Summary: there should be one preview, not two.
