Page jumps up and down while typing reply in Safari on iPad 6th Generation
Open, Needs TriagePublicBUG REPORT

Description

Original discussion in which bug was reported: final few comments at https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk:Enterprisey/reply-link&oldid=1043009425#Reply-link_officially_superseded_by_DiscussionTools. I don't have an iPad, so I can't reproduce this. A friend has a newer iPad and couldn't reproduce it, but I don't think they had the same configuration. I also had my friend use the testwiki.

To reproduce
Open the Reply Tool interface by clicking [ reply ] and start typing.

What happens?:
The screen jumps (presumably, scrolls rapidly) up and down on each keystroke.

What should have happened instead?:
The screen should not move.

Software version (if not a Wikimedia wiki), browser information, screenshots, other information, etc:

iPad 6th Generation, Software 14.7.1, Safari browser

Event Timeline

@VPuffetMichel is going to try to see if she can reproduce this on her iPad.

I tested this using an Ipad pro (5th generation), 14.7.1 and safari using my own talk page on en.wikipedia and on the page suggested above.

I did not get any screen jumps and could reply without any problem.

Excellent – this is helpful to know. Thank you for investigating this, @VPuffetMichel.

Considering what you shared above and what @Whatamidoing-WMF discovered on-wiki [i], I'm moving this to the backlog. We can revisit this task if/when the issue resurfaces.


i. conversation at en.wiki

Okay, I reloaded, and no jerky seasickness has occurred! Hooray! By replying here, am I now "subscribed"? I merely pressed "reply" under your post...so if I post on another talkpage (elsewhere on WP) will I be automatically subscribed and receive notifications? I clicked on "Advanced" under this box, and think this might be true, and if I unclick "watch this page", I can opt out of this one page. Now, I will go to my Preferences and enable this new Beta feature, yes? I think I'm a happy sailor now. Thanks for your assistance. Tribe of Tiger Let's Purrfect! 20:02, 9 September 2021
