Yesterday, I noticed the insert citation function stopped working. It generates the cite from a URL without a problem as normal, but when I click "insert", an empty dialogue box appears, then quickly disappears, and the cite is not inserted. This happens on Chrome and Edge browsers, I haven't tried any others. Inserting a citation in VE mode still works without a problem. Sorry if this is the wrong place to report and thanks for looking into it.

Insert citation not working?
I'm having the same problem. Also with inserting templates. Using Firefox and chrome in visual and source editing modes.
I'm also having the same problems for several days. Also with inserting templates. Using Edge(Chromium ) in visual and source editing modes. (I often edit Wikipedia.)
Same problem which has existed for about 4 days. Sudden change and nuisance not to have this feature. Have reset my preferences to default, then selectively checked and tried different settings in my sandbox, with no resolution of the problem. Bug? ~~~~
Same problem here ! On Chrome.
Same problem on Hebrew Wikipedia, using Chrome and Edge.
As of today, it's working normally for me again, on Chrome.
Me too on Japanese Wikipedia Edge(Chromium) :D
Working today again. Thanks
Working for me again too on Hebrew Wikipedia. Thanks.
