ARCHIVE: Issues with FT -- 2018 MOBILE Devices BUG REPORTS

This is the rebooted and split thread to report bugs found in the 15 November 2017 FlyerTalk skin for MOBILE devices.

There are separate threads for desktop devices as well as for disruptive advertisements and for browser redirects / hijacks, as well as other technical issues.

Thank you for keeping the thread on topic and assisting Tech to identify, troubleshoot and deal with bugs in this latest iteration of FlyerTalk for mobile devices.

Cursor bug has been reported. No ETA at this time, I'm sorry.

I am glad it is reported but it is a bit ironic that a tavel forum has a bug for several weeks. Many of us use FT on the go and on mobile devices.

FWIW, the cursor appears in the correct location until the first character is typed. Then the whole line disappears into the header. Persists even on the second line. Using quick reply on iOS 11 iPad Pro.

I primarily use FT on the iPad. Since the upgrade these are the most annoying ‘enhancements’ not fixed yet in my opinion.

1. The cursor issue. Can’t see what you are typing without having to stop and scroll up to check.

2. When replying to a post, the first letter of a paragraph defaults to lower case..which when combined with the above cursor issue means you don’t actually spot it until you scroll back up to see what you have just written. Arghhhh

3. When expanding the screen in your iPad (zooming in) the right hand side vertical advert overlaps the topic text so you can’t read the topic thread... you have to zoom back out again. I have poor eyesight and this bug is really annoying as it prohibits me from slightly zooming in.

Click just below the text you're composing, and then hit the delete/backspace key. That's always fixed this issue for me. I think it was also mentioned in another thread.

I can't seem to easily get to MyFlyertalk on the mobile version. I'm using it on an iPad, and previously, I had a shortcut straight into MFT. Now it takes me to my profile page where I can make changes. In order to get to the "right" MFT, I have to go to the home page and select it from the menu. The counter for how many unread subscribed threads is gone.

I am in the same boat with # 3 -- is there a way to fix this?

Scrolling the topics page still lags on my 2017 iPad Pro in desktop mode in safari.

I’ve reported this several times and there has never been a response. Does anybody care?

Stutters. The usual 120fps turns into 15 or so. If I scroll really quickly, I see white space and then the content fills in after a short delay. Similar thing happens on my iPhone X, but is more noticeable after zooming in.

Here's a short video of what I see on my ipad. Once I go into the posts page, it scrolls fine.
