  • Component changed from General to UI
  • Milestone Unassigned deleted
  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Summary changed from 'Get shortcut' opens in text box popup to 'Get shortlink' opens in text box popup

I'm going to close this as wontfix for now. The reason it's shown in a prompt box (giving you an Ok and a Cancel button) is so the user can select the text regardless of what browser they're using (some browsers won't let you select text in an alert box).

Maybe we can look at giving this a better UI at some point.
