Minor bug, perhaps it's easy to fix?

    This certainly isn't a serious issue, but just in case it's easy to do something about it, I'll point it out:

    The quote function creates a first line that says "XXX said:", and then adds a little arrow. That arrow has a link, which used to lead back to the original post. The arrow no longer seems to be working, at least under (1) Chrome under Win10 and (2) Chrome under Android. It's nice to be able to very easily go back and see a quote's original context.

    It still works, but for some reason you have to tap it twice, instead of just once. I have the same problem with spoiler tags on my phone.

    Clicking the "up-arrow" in K's post you quoted does nothing. No matter how many times I Click/tap it. I can open it in a new tab or window and it indexes to the correct post. Should I open a jira?

    Chrome on Windows 10 PC.

    Aha! Confirmed. Double tapping circumvents the popup blocker, and similarly, the middle mouse button, which does the same on the PC, also gets the arrow to work. Apparently for some reason following the link anchored in the arrow is treated as a popup?

    This should be the official slogan of Xenforo software, because it will never not be true.
