The "Edit page" and "View page history" options that are included in the contextual menu when you right-click in an article on MDN stopped working sometime in the last few days; these need to be fixed since they're a huge convenience when working in larger articles.
Adding to the context menu appears to be Firefox-only The code is in wiki.js, and hasn't changed in years: https://github.com/mozilla/kuma/blob/754f61b24220b0601dc370142dc4fd7614e85a47/kuma/static/js/wiki.js#L520 location.href = $(e.target).data('action') + '?src=context'; If I run this instead, I get redirected to the edit page: window.location.href = $(e.target).data('action') + '?src=context'; Maybe a change in FF 53?
This is Firefox only because nobody else has implemented the context menu feature of HTML5 yet. Chrome had an implementation in work but has removed it due to them wanting there to be changes to the spec and a lack of anyone to work on the code. And apparently we don't match the spec at this time, either. I'm going to work on this, since it will only take a few minutes (famous last words) and is relevant to my interests personally.
