finiki is broken, management has been notified.

(There was a change in the underlying Operating System software which runs finiki, announced in the private finiki editor's forum. It was OK a short time ago.)

Update: finiki is fixed. In FireFox, clear your browser cache to see finiki work corrrectly again.

It was impacting non-logged-in users and not editors, which is why I didn't spot it immediately. Thanks. The problem has been identified and resolved.

Thanks for the report. Behind the scenes, others have also noticed intermittent sluggishness and errors over the past couple of days.
