I disabled showing of my online status, and I can see the green dot indicating 'Online' on my avi on my posts. Is it what’s supposed to happen? Or is my status being shown in spite of me disabling it?
Adding it to the to-do list over here to look to this issue.

Please note.
As I will be moving halfway across the world over the next few days. Responses to both this and the update thread will be limited during this process. I'll get to any issues you guys might have when I'm settled in again :)

Does clicking the cogwheel do anything?

Or tapping.

I'm having issues with fonts not displaying properly on Firefox for Android 66.0 (latest version as far as I'm aware). On my end, all fonts display as the "default" font:

DEFAULT:

ARIAL:

BOOK ANTIQUA:

For reference, I'm using the Bulbagarden Forum's BBCode guide. So far, I'm not aware of this issue affecting anyone but me, but I'm also not aware of anyone else using Firefox for Android. This issue occurs even without using addons, and I haven't jailbroken my phone or anything like that. I'm using a Samsung Galaxy S9. I can provide more info on request.

Anyone else with an Android device able to replicate this issue?

When typing in a post with tables, the scroll bars get all shaky and keep blinking.
TABLE
Edit: This also happens with long posts and posts with quotes.

If I'm not mistaken that’s the new notification if a single person likes/reacts on a lot of your posts.
Correct! The reason why it says {ratings} is because of the different kinds of likes. I'm not sure that's a bug but I'll have a look over on the xenforo forums tonight just in case ;)

@SoaringDylan Can confirm, still having issues under same circumstances. Also tested with Google Chrome on mobile and found some fonts loaded, but it was...weird. I think some fonts loaded correctly, but others didn't and Chrome chose a "best match". Borrowed a relative's Android tablet and used Google Chrome, same issue. Firefox for Mobile still doesn't load any "alternative" fonts.

I see the exact same on my Phone (running latest chrome & android 9). So I'm afraid it's a browser incompatibility error which means it's nothing we can fix from the forum's side. :(
 
Just let me clear the ol' browser history and...

The Search Server has been down since the cloudflare issues from yesterday. Tech's have been contacted but it hasn't been fixed yet. :(

Idea: disable the 60 second rule after 100 posts. It would be really helpful

Is there a way to get the Home, etc. bar to stop scrolling? I can't see what I'm posting via mobile due to it blocking it.

But your issue is on mobile :unsure:
I know. I just meant in order to upload the image. I have no way of doing so. Can't take pics on my Vita and can't upload them via my phone to it.

It's the main purple bar that has home, forums and stuff that gets in the way, posting wise on mobile.

You should just be able to take a screenshot on your phone and upload it with the "attach files" button
