Description

28 days ago

STR:

  1. Click the pencil icon to edit a comment.
  2. Make some change.
  3. Click the "Update comment" button, being sure to click near the left edge of the button

ACTUAL RESULTS:
The "Update comment" button suddenly gets smaller (because its text changes to "Saving"), which may mean the Cancel button jumps under your cursor. This gives you a moment of panic where you worry that perhaps you accidentally clicked Cancel (because there it is, right on the spot you just clicked).

EXPECTED RESULTS:
Buttons shouldn't jump under your cursor when you click.

(If the bug's not obvious from just watching the screencast, e.g. because it's too quick, try pausing & seeking to around the 2 or 3 second mark.)

Yeah, the “Saving…” label should probably be displayed next to the Cancel button to avoid any confusion. I’ll fix it.
