Text field covered by keyboard on mobile

I’ve noticed the text field of a thread no longer shifts to accommodate the keyboard popping up, and ends up getting covered, which makes it hard to see what you’re typing.

    Just to clarify, you can scroll down right? The problem is the page isn't jumping down?

    No, you cannot scroll down, which is really the change, I think. I am no longer able to view the text box at all on mobile Chrome without closing the keyboard.

    they keyboard pops up over the text box and the only ways to see it are closing the keyboard or hitting return enough times that you have enough white space in the text box to scroll it above the keyboard

    Using mobile chrome the keyboard pops up over the text entry box, but I can scroll the page up to see the box.

    If it makes a difference, note 8 using Gboard.

    Yeah it’s mostly unusable on mobile right now

    That strategy of "hit Enter a bunch of times until you have enough whitespace to see the text box" has been working pretty OK for me, as obnoxious as it is. So, thanks to Chanus for mentioning that!

    I switched to safari for my posting needs and it seems to work fine there.

    This appears isolated to chrome and is going to take some doing. We're not deploying anymore today so we'll hopefully fix this next week.

    It's like that for me on some threads, but the text entry box still pops up the way it should on others. LG V30, Android 8, Chrome 71 using the LG keyboard.

    Is it a Chrome 72 thing?

    Odd that two noticeable issues hit mobile in such quick succession and I've experienced neither. Really weird.

    At least for me in this thread, Chrome 72.0.3626.96, Android 5.1.1, causes no problems. Jumps up properly, can scroll further down. Haven't tried many other threads, though.
    [Edit] Also Gboard.

    We looked into this and actually didn't do anything, it was a chrome issue completely.

    If anyone is still experiencing it, they should probably update.
