I'm not sure what you mean by this and why this is a problem. Could you provide a screenshot please?

This page should be adjusted in core MediaWiki. The table layout doesn't lend itself well to mobile.

AllPages actually has a patch pending: https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/145761

The following special pages make use of table based layouts when they shouldn't:

Special:AllMessages
Special:AllPages
Special:ChangeEmail
Special:Contributions
Special:Import
Special:Listgrouprights
Special:MergeHistory
Special:MovePage
Special:Newpages
Special:PrefixIndex
Special:RecentChanges
Special:RevisionDelete
Special:Search
Special:Specialpages
Special:Statistics
Special:Tags
Special:TrackingCategories
Special:Undelete
Special:Userrights
Special:Version

( and most of these can be moved to use HTMLFormField)

Change 150636 had a related patch set uploaded by Jdlrobson:

This should now be fixed in mobile. Help us identify specific issues so we can make this the default for desktop too.

Thanks but my wiki will wait for mobile to be fully implemented and released before using it again.
