If this is a non-pluggable part of the Silverstripe UI, I don't expect

That's bullshit, sorry. When there is a "bug" (in this case in your
eyes a usability bug), it should be fixed.
Calling it "poorly implemented UI" because you have a strong opinion
about it (and others don't care/can live with it) is strongly biased.

It is not Bulldust, we are not here to work on the Silverstripe
project, we are the LibreOffice project.
If you wish to submit it as a bug to the Silverstripe project, please
feel free. I however don't feel the need.
And in my opinion it is poorly implemented UI, it may seem like bull
to you, but I feel that is a hindrance to my web experience.

Again: Why should there be multiple different UI layers to manage?
That is stupid to do. Have one UI that works and be it. As you might
have noticed in other places, silverstripe is not always using a
javascript prompt. Just that specific feature does.

Are you suggesting that it should be easy to change? If so I might
consider submitting a bug.

Seeing your chance to bash silverstripe because of it, great, you got
your fun. Now please get back to being objective and talking in a
reasonable fashion.

I am not Bashing Silverstripe, I am simply raising my concerns
regarding the web infrastructure that we are using, which we can
hopefully fix.
We are the website team and I would expect that everyone on the team
raises all issues they find in order to improve the systems that we
I am sorry you don't feel that way about a bug report, but I encourage
you to also look critically at all the tools we are using, it's only
