Lately, when I try to use the quote function on my phone, whatever I'm typing jumps up into the quote box so it looks like the whole post is a quote. Is anyone else having this problem?

I'm having problems with things jumping around a lot, though not that particularly. When I go to a post it jumps to one two back.

I have had the same problem when I use the Ecosia app but not when I use Chrome.

What phone and browser are you having this issue with?

I think the problem with things jumping around is related to the issues brought up in this thread.

I am using Chrome Version 107.0.5304.107 (Official Build) (64-bit) and the embedded outside links makes the page load to old posts instead of the newest one I wanted to see.

Also using Chrome. It used to only happen if there was a bad link on the page though. But now it happens on almost every page.

Same here, although I think it has to do with links the Twitter and Instagram. Every thread seems to have those links, so it seems to happen everywhere.

Oh, that makes sense. There are a lot more Twitter links these days.

Can someone post a screen recording of what happens specifically when quoting? I can’t reproduce this on my phone.

I was going to quote your tweet via my phone and reply to it, to show you how the text I type jumps into the quote box. But as I was doing it, everything jumped around so much and the quote box got so big that I couldn't even find what I was typing anymore! I'm sorry, that sounds kind of incoherent. It's hard to describe, but it's as if, while I was typing, someone pressed and held down the Return button so that the text box kept expanding and expanding and expanding. My words got pushed down all the way to the bottom of it. And then the next thing that happened was that the whole site started acting up and I had to close out of it! I'm typing this now on my desktop, where everything works fine.

Again, I'm sorry if this doesn't make any sense -- it's the best way I can describe it. I can try again later to demonstrate it for you.
