You can now select an expiry option from the dropdown on mobile.

After making a selection from the dropdown, the popup remains visible for about 6 seconds.

However, I find that if I open the dropdown for a second time, the popup dismisses after 6 seconds even if the dropdown is open. So, you can make a second (or even third) expiry selection (if you change your mind), but you have to be quick. I might raise this as a separate bug.

Similarly to described in T261476#6440072, while the dropdown is open if I tap outside the dropdown (dismissing the dropdown) the popup remains indefinitely.

I have tested this, and I can now make a selection of a temporary time period in mobile (see screenshot example below). The star is half-shaded (see screenshot example below), but only upon refresh (which will be separately handled in T261970). As for the issue Dom described (the pop-up not remaining open until selection period complete, when multiple selections are made) can be handled in a separate ticket (T262672). I'm marking this as Done.
