Dealing with iOS 8 Mobile Safari bugs?

There is a resize event that has some support, but I don’t know if it’s mature and stable enough to code for yet.

This would be the best way to show up the composer, as seen on reply:
(Notice, that the adress bar and bookmarks are hiding automatically by starting a new reply by Safari. It seems the page is expanding and therefore iOS can resolve the issue…)

This is how it looks like at me (with tags): Terrible…

And here without tags, at your instance:

Overall, I think the best way to get more available space is, to bring the buttons and dropdown fields in a separate dialog field before/after editing.

@sam Specs: iPad mini 4; iOS 10.3.1

Hmmm … this appears to overlap quite a bit with:

I agree there is lots of empty spaces in “create topic” screen that should be filled up, I think a simple workaround for now is to always give “create topic” 200 more vertical pixels or something.

Maybe come up with some better visual mocks?

I think this discussion here is nothing specific to iOS it belongs in your other topic or something.


As of iOS 10.3 this is mostly fixed:

I confirmed that scroll is not going all over-the-place when you start entering text. (repro is to use iOS 10.3 in “desktop” mode, scroll down page and click on search text input)

position fixed is still somewhat finicky, but the killer bug we had appears to be gone.
