Description

Steps to reproduce:

  1. On your mobile device, go to https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stockport
  2. Open the mobile visual editor
  3. Scroll whilst the page is loading

Expected:

  • Read content, or edit content, or a loading indicator should be shown

Actual:

  • Content is shown overlapping other content (I think it's edit and read content?)

@Deskana: I'm not seeing this on Android, even with 4x CPU throttling...

It could be related to showing the editor too early, which I'm looking in to in T202513

I can't reproduce this now, so I guess we have to assume that this is fixed until we prove otherwise.
