Description

5 years ago
Currently it's too easy to accidentally deactivate a user via their profile page with a misplaced click. Ex. This could happen when trying to click the Private message link (which is above the deactivate button) too quickly. And moderators do not have a "Reactivate" option (Bug 847142) so this complicates things.

See this profile for example:
https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/user/662734

Can we show a warning dialog asking us if we're sure we want to deactivate this user?
Did this actually happen already? Anyway, a warning would probably be in order.

Thankfully, no. This is just a precaution/preventative measure for accidental clicks. Since re-activating the account requires contacting a admin, this means the innocent victim will be at the mercy of the admin's schedule. Which is already an extremely busy one (big workload, meetings, trips, work weeks, timezone conflicts, etc).

Not sure why this got set to 0pts? Anyway, it should be a 1pter to add the js and whatever for the confirmation.
