Can't Open Quotes In New Tab

ReynoldsReynolds Gone Fishin'Registered User regular
I used to be able to right-click on the Quote option on posts and tell it to open in a new tab, and I would get a new tab that was just a message box with the quote in it. The address on the new tab would look like it was pointing to the comment I right-clicked Quote on. Using this box would post to the thread like normal.

Now when I do this I get the new tab with a completely empty box. It still seems to be pointing to the thread and comment, but doesn't actually quote the comment in quote tags like it used to.

    Yeah, this was helpful when catching up a thread, since clicking directly on it always takes you to the bottom of the page and starts a draft. Especially since doing that to multiple quotes makes the posting box a mess.

    Yeah, I would click on any posts I wanted to remember to respond to, then tidy it all up into one post later. Now it's a lot messier.

    This was super useful when posting from mobile, since it would give you a separate tab to write your post in.

    Yep, I miss this feature too. Here's hoping this is just a bug.

    I am missing this on multiple browsers and devices, including mobile. I hope it comes back.

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.

    the "no true scotch man" fallacy.

    Have we heard anything at all about why this is happening?

    Ok, good, because I was going to report a bug with my brain in that it refuses to learn that this is no longer an option.

    I would like to report that I quoted this post by opening it in a new tab.
