what the hell is going on with android chrome?
Last night I couldn't post on chrome,  had to use firefox, which we worked out early on, isn't great. 

Today, I can post but my damned smilies button has gone awol. What the fuck is going on? Its fine on other sites but tvf is playing up summat rotten. 

Anyone suggest other browsers I can add to my growing collection on my damned phones home page? 

And to be clear, I'm on Android so none of that ios shite please. Smile

Dolphin is good.

I take it your phone has just updated itself to Android 4.3? Mine took a while to settle down afterwards.

I honestly don't know a thing about Android Graham so I'm not going to be much use. Can you take a screenshot of the issue ?

RE: what the hell is going on with android chrome?
My chromium on linux was not working right last night. I was trying to reply using the quick reply box down bottom, and it kept saying something about you cant leave the reply blank, so I had to click on the reply button in the post. 

I am on 4.3 and use chrome on my HTC, its been working fine for me on this site

RE: what the hell is going on with android chrome?
last night there was a jscript issue with the quick reply editor so I had to update to the latest version (this was a firefox only issue) the update cleared the problem for me.

Perhaps Graham is using a cached version of the old editor ? I really don't know how it works on phones

I wonder if the phone browser cache was cleared the problem might go away ?

RE: what the hell is going on with android chrome?
Last night I had a bunch of flakiness on Firefox, Safari, SRWare Iron, iCab, Chromium and Opera. Might not be the phone. 

No problems today though.
I don't do Chrome even on my phone as Google are evil. Most IOS browsers are Webkit based - which is where Chrome comes from with added Google spying. Go for Chromium with moderate spying or SRWare Iron with no spying but flakiness. They are all based on the same kHTML guts. As are all IOS browsers.

Actually I think it's cache related because the editor update changed some of the icons on the editor toolbar

Clear your browser cache and try it again Graham

Restarting now.....

Ok. Restarting hasn't returned the smilies.  I'm off to bed, I'll uninstall and reinstall chrome tomorrow. 

Leaving on a positive. ......

Wrapped some new coils tonight that really kick arse.

I got a sub ohm dual coil in my AIOS, and got it set up in tank mode... its kicking arse. dont know why, but tank mode pumps out the vapor better than dripper with the same coil/wick combo

Restarting doesn't clear the cache - you need to delete the browser cache. uninstalling & reinstalling will clear the cache but it's unnessecary
