Any chance of resurrecting this favorites pony request?
After a long day of reading the site on mobile while waiting for stuff, the request here to add a "Favorite this post" link to the "Who favorited this post" page (the one that comes up when you click the link with the number of people who favorited the post) made a lot of sense to me. [more inside]

Can we get a "Remove from Activity" button on the Mobile site?
I was wondering if it would be possible to get the "Remove from Activity" link added to the Recent Activity page of the Mobile site. Is this something that people would like to have, and if so would it be feasible to implement this feature? [more inside]
Android, Firefox, and Metafilter commenting
More and more I find myself visiting Metafilter on my Android tablet. I am using Firefox 25.0.1 on a Nexus 7 with Android 4.3. Recently, commenting has become almost impossible - namely, any kind of HTML tags get very screwed up. Typically, I'll copy a comment I want to reply to, surround that with em tags and then reply. Lately, in the process of posting, Android or Firefox or Metafilter decides to empty the closing em tag (leaving two carats) and append a set of empty carats and a closing em tag to my whole post. Trying to clean it up leads to all kinds of problems - the cursor jumps around and deletes things on its own. Has anyone else experienced this? Is it Android, Firefox, Metafilter, or some combination of all three? Any help would be appreciated.
Jabiru for Android for Mefi Chat
I have been using Xabber on Metafilter chat. I had a lot of problems with it. Pb kindly did some research and found that Jabiru is more compatible with the chat program used by Metafilter. For mefi chat, Jabiru is superior in every way to Xabber except one: Initial setup is a confusing pain. It took me two days with help from pb to work out the bugs. So I have written a tutorial.

FYI: Contact Form Seems to not work on Android (Dolplhin Browser)
Last night, I tried to use the MetaFilter contact form. I had some technical difficulties with it. I tried to search to see if this a known issue with the contact form. I did not find anything but my MetaFilter search fu isn't the greatest. I thought I would just let you know, in case you didn't already know (and in case there is some stupidly simple solution should I ever need to use the form again). [more inside]
Issue with the mobile site on Android 4.1.1
I have a new phone (Motorola Droid Razr M), running Android 4.1.1 and I'm using Firefox (looks like 20.0?). When I click the (X New) link to enter a thread rather than the X Comments / X Answers, nothing happens. If I press and hold, I can cut and then paste the link into the browser, but just tapping it to enter the thread and jump to the latest comment/answer doesn't work. This is also true of the favorite + and the flag !. [more inside]
Unofficial MetaFilter Apps
For the past six months I've been tinkering with a set of unofficial apps for MetaFilter. When I started this project there weren't any official apps on the horizon and except for an odd 3rd party iPhone app I couldn't find anything else so I decided to explore the problem on my own. [more inside]

The Metafilter iOS/Android App Request
I want an official Metafilter app for iOS. Is one in the works? If not, would The Powers That Be object to one being made by a community member? And what would the community want in such an app, and how much would they be willing to pay? [more inside]
