Displays like this image below. Makes it a bit hard just jab at the screen until I get the comment box to come up but.

What are you using? Looks like an iPhone to me...

 

It shows up in Android. Could 'maybe' that you have icons disabled... IDK

It’s likely a race condition with the JavaScript. Refresh it a few times and it usually shows up.  It’s very annoying.

Nah it’s a bug.  I’ve not tried it on Android but it’s definitely an issue with iOS.

No? hmm... I never use iOS, so that would explain it...

@DaveLegg you confirmed this as an issue some time ago (a month or so), and mentioned it would be fixed. Any eta? It’s still an issue.

I've borrowed an iOS device to take a look at this, but I'm unable to reproduce it. If you have any more information about when it's happening (specific articles, articles with a certain number of comments, only on every other Wednesday, whatever) that would be helpful.

Linear mode, and only on articles with comments, it doesn’t matter what browser you use. I thought we had discussed this before and you confirmed it was an issue?  Anyway, try that. Eventually it will show up.

I confirmed it wasn't a javascript issue, as there's no javascript involved in showing/hiding the icons. I've just switched to Linear view, as I was testing with the default threaded view previously. I'm still seeing the icons and unable to reproduce  the problem. If you see it again, and are able to plug it into a mac and look at it with the inspector, that would be really helpful in tracking down the cause. I spent two hours this evening attempting to connect to the iOS device from the chrome dev tools on a windows laptop, and had no luck - unfortunately I don't have a mac to connect it to
