Summary: Toolbar in editor sometimes overlaps edit box
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: 1.17
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Normal
         Component: User interface

the problem is intermittent, and so far i could only reproduce it in hebrew
wikipedia ( ), but i doubt it has anything to do with


* select "enhanced editing toolbar" in preferences, 
* enter "edit" state for a SHORT article long enough to have scrollbar in the
editor, but not too long. try for something where the whole thing is no more
than 3-4 "pgdn" from top to bottom (??)
* open the "Advance" menu
* grab the edge of browser, and narrow it to the point the toolbar takes two
lines, i.e., some of the buttons drop to a second line.

now we can reporduce. as mentioned, the problem is intermittent, so
reproduction depends on some luck. you may want to try different machines
(faster vs. slower etc.), different connection speed (timing seems to be an
issue - there is some race condition going on) or other variables.
the problem have been observed so far on FF and chrome, on win-7 and
* at this point,  "refresh", "super refresh" (i.e. shift-whatever on your
browser) etc.

(remember - the "advance" menu is open and occupies 2 lines of buttons)
hit "refresh", shift-refresh, <ctrl> refresh etc. 
if you are lucky, sooner or later the top of the textarea hides behind the
if you reproduced, note that collapsing and reopening "advance" cures the
problem - the textarea will have the correct size after closing and opening

tried to get similar results with other menus ("help", "special characters") -
could not repro.
tried to get the same effect in - failed. -
