What feature should be changed? Please provide the URL of the feature if possible.
Editor in source mode should contain line numbers.

What problems would this solve?
It would be easier to update a webpage on translations with line numbers as it's shown in diff but not in source mode so that we can locate the diffs content.

Who would use this?
Every translator on MDN.

What would users see?
Line numbers.

What would users do? What would happen as a result?
Translators would have an easier way to update articles.

Is there anything else we should know?

5 minutes of research did not find any CKEditor settings to enable line numbers.  There is a 5-year-old plugin [1] that claims to add paragraph numbering, but it is doubtful it still works with modern CKEditor.  It sounds like we'd have to author our own plugin to add this feature.
