A Variety Of Mobile Firefox Issues

CelloCello Registered User regular
I've had some adventures with Firefox, let me tell you. These are on mobile Android, with a Samsung S20+:

- when I post in the SE fitness thread, half the time I make a post it tells me it will be posted when it is approved. This happens in no other thread
- about 80 percent of the time when I try to post or edit, once the draft bar would pop up, I am no longer able to scroll down the page and the bottom bar disappears but is still physically present. I know this because clicking parts of the screen will sometimes take me to my inbox, notifications, etc. It sucks!
- if I click randomly where I think the X of the draft save notification might be, then I can scroll again. If I am not particularly adept, it will pop open one of the other lower bar panes instead
- these issues happen when posting or editing existing posts

These have been happening since the fall of 2020, maybe October or November or so. It's frustrating for the posting experience, unfortunately.

    the first thing sounds like you are getting caught in the spambot keyword filter, if you have been talking about k*to diets that would trip it.

    Apparently so! Man, I don't even eat k-diet anymore, I was losing my mind there trying to post about goddamn protein bars

    yeah the worst one for me is writing a long post on mobile, and then hitting a phantom button that's invisibly on top of the "post reply" button, which then both eats your post and forces you to refresh

    if you wait long enough, the "draft" auto-save message will pop up again and if you hit close on that quickly enough, it can sometimes pop you back into your post

    This happens to me so often

    Like, every other post, if I am not fast enough

    It's rough!

    Has anyone also had issues with autocorrect? It only happens on this site but if I'm typing while it saves the auto draft sometimes my autocorrect won't put spaces in between words. So if I wanted to type "I'm not sure" I would start by typing 'I'm' and selecting 'I'm' and then 'not' and then 'sure'. But every once in a while it'll show up as 'I'mnotsure' and it requires me to go in and put double spaces on it... One doesn't work somehow.

    Hasn't every happened anywhere else before. I can't explain what's going on.

    Easiest fix for the OPs problem is to just pad the bottom of the page like 100 pixels or something.
