What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question

When I clicked the flag button on a comment, a popup of the entire page for page not found appeared (see image below). I think that this behaviour should be fixed as it is a rather confusing experience. The comment must have just been edited as I clicked the flag button.

Also, why did the popup say page not found?

I think this is relevant...kind of... – Time Traveling Bobby Apr 4 '13 at 13:28
Yes, the red does not look great there :) – Ren Apr 4 '13 at 13:29
The comment was most likely deleted, not edited. The popup is loading a page, e.g. so when the comment with that ID is deleted you'll indeed get "Page Not Found" pop up. – Shadow Wizard Apr 4 '13 at 13:32
The comment is most definitely still there. See the 4th one here with the edit icon next to it -… – Ren Apr 4 '13 at 13:33
Since I can't flag my own comment can't reproduce it as I wanted... anyway you sure that's the comment you tried to flag? When you try to flag now is it working fine? – Shadow Wizard Apr 4 '13 at 13:35
@ShaWizDowArd I'm sure yes. If you look at the minute difference between his comment and Antony's, the time difference is the same for that edited one and Antony's now. Flagging it now works fine. – Ren Apr 4 '13 at 13:38

Seriously though, fixed in the next build with a proper error message.
