The Modern theme has long been plagued with a bug on Android phones where it bounces you to the top when the orientation changes. We're trying to improve that and could use some help testing it. [more inside]
I've noticed that, after sending a message, the Your Inbox "tab" link includes "sent=1" and the only way I've found to clear the "Your message was sent" message is to use the little (more difficult for me to click on) envelope link. This just seems like odd behaviour, is it intentional? [more inside]
Since the using the new themes, which I love, on my Nexus 5, whenever I rotate to landscape and then back to portrait I end up back at the top of threads. [more inside]
Has anyone else run into a problem pulling up fanfare threads through site search or am I an idiot? [more inside]
I can't login using Lynx. Specifically, I can't get Lynx to even prompt me to accept any cookies from Metafilter, and I think I know why. The problem seems to be with when cookies expire. [more inside]
I've been following the Israel/Gaza post through the Recent Activity My Favorites tab. Today, that post stopped appearing there for me even though I still have the post listed as a favorite. I've tried un-favoriting and re-favoriting with no luck in getting the post to reappear in recent activity. I've tried logging out, clearing all cookies, and logging back in. Still no luck. How do I get this post back into the Recent Activity My Favorites tab?
I'm seeing a bug while favoriting comments that've been loaded through the "recent comments" auto-loader. If I add an auto-loaded comment to my favorites, all the loaded comments vanish once the favorite's been added. It seems to occur while the site's loading up the new favorite count — I get a brief "adding favorite" dialogue, and then, boop, all gone! This is occurring on Google Chrome on OS X; I'm not sure if anybody else is getting this, but I've tried this on multiple subsites and it's a recurring and consistent bug.
I made a comment on the Fannibal thread, then after a while I removed it from my Recent Activity. I just made another comment there yet the post isn't showing up on Recent Activity again. Bug or feature? (I've done the clearing cookies and logging in/out thing, no dice. On Dolphin for Android.) [more inside]
I've got the Chrome addon for the Heartbleed server test site and it's just given me a message saying that metafilter.com is vulnerable to the Heartbleed SSL bug. More information about the bug.
Over in this longboat thread, we've discovered an odd bug. If you try to make a post that's identical to one that you've made previously in the same thread, it doesn't work. Instead, the thread refreshes and goes to your previous comment.
When I'm logged out, the link here works correctly (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=misN2jbpo1Y#t=1m05). When I'm logged in, the site has converted the hash to an ampersand (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=misN2jbpo1Y&t=1m05). I imagine this is a bug related to the inline YouTube player.
I'm logged in and using Chrome on an iPad 3. I have title size set to zero in my preferences. That works on my laptop and elsewhere, but not on my iPad; I see the titles exactly as a non-logged in user would do. [more inside]
Using Chrome on Windows 7 with the deleted posts script installed, the title display seems to be malfunctioning to show the deleted post in between the title and the body of the non-deleted post below it.
I subscribe to AskMe via Google Reader, and the bottom of each post provides a link to the post. The link reads "X comments on this item," where X is always 1 more than the actual number of comments. Not a huge deal, but something I wonder about ever so often. Bug? Ghosts of comments past? [more inside]
Every once in a while, while reading MeFi on my phone, the heading will freak out. Like this. [more inside]

I discovered just now that closing an <a> tag with an </i> tag looks correct in preview but blows up in the actual comment. [more inside]
Small bug with [more inside] alignment. Chrome, 20.0.1132.27. Perhaps it happens right after a bullet list of items?
Bug (or feature?): The "mark question resolved" button on the "confirm resolved" page on Ask Me pops a new tab, where it probably should use the same tab, as you don't need the question anymore. (Also, on the MetaTalk preview, it says use the back button to tweak the form, when you don't need to, as the form lives down below. Which is where I'm typing this in. Alright I'll shut up and stop causing pb more work.)
Popping out the Music player doesn't seem to work anymore. [more inside]
Bug Report: favorites from username (example, look for the comment on "September 10, 2011") uses old(? non-sprite anyways) best answer tick image which goes to http://images.metafilter.com/mefi/icons/tick.png and currently returns a 500 internal server error.
Occasionally, when I use the "back" arrow on my iPhone 4s to return to the main page of one of the subsites, it brings me to a much older version of that page, rather than the version I was just visiting. Why? How do I stop this from happening?
Is there something wrong with the timestamps on Contact Activity? [more inside]
Bug, or just me? Cannot remove deleted threads from recent activity. [more inside]
My RSS reader says the MetaFilter RSS feed is invalid. I'd really like to use it because I've become RSS oriented and I'm not checking MeFi. It could be a problem with the RSS reader, Thunderbird 2.0.24 (I know there are other readers, but TB uniquely meets my needs), but the MeFi feed has worked previously and the AskMefi RSS feed works currently. I've tried the feeds coming from the feed.feedburner.com host and the one from feed2.. Thanks in advance.

Minor Bug: Under Popular Favorites, it says that the Mystery Science Theater post had 90 favorites. If you click on the favorites, it lists 153. If I recall correctly, it was accurate yesterday. That's about it, and pleasedontletthisbeadiscussionaboutfavorites. Thanks!
IRL Bug: this event, which happened yesterday, is showing up in the "Upcoming" part of the sidebar for me.

On this activity page, the "more" on the first item links to http://www.metafilter.com/2839866/We-know-what-happened-because-he-said-yes#2839866; unfortunately, we haven't reached 2.8M posts on MetaFilter. Also, the same comment appears as item 3 of the list, but this time the "more" link works (gets to the right comment in the existing thread). [more inside]
