On the mobile site, I often tap on a thread but the one that opens is 2-3 lines higher.

Does that make sense? So there will be a list of Active threads:

AIBU to think pigs can fly?

Help with Potty training

Oh no, I'm covered in bees!

I'll click on "Bees" and it will take me to "pigs". I don't always notice straight away either. It's really annoying! The page isn't even jumping unless it happens in the split second that I click every time.

I am using android 5.1.1, standard Samsung browser.

Yes this happens to me too! I thought it was the page jumping to start with but it definitely isn't. Mobile site, chrome for Android not sure which version, possibly 5.1 (not the latest one).

Thurlow Tue 12-Apr-16 11:13:27

Oooh, I get this too and I thought it was just me being stupid! Chrome on an Android Samsung. I always assumed it was because the page was actually loading slower than it appear, so while you think you've got Bees in the middle of your screen, Android/Chrome actually has Pigs in the middle of your screen.

Queenbean Tue 12-Apr-16 11:15:30

Yes this happens to me too!

I assumed that it was the crappy advertising banner along the top taking more time to load than the actual content, so by the time you click on the thread you want the banner has loaded and pushed everything else down.

My whole mn experience is plagued and almost ruined by this issue, I had assumed it was just my phone getting slow but also the stupid banner ads loading. I go backwards and forwards between active and threads I don't want until I land on something I want to read, often still not what I was actually aiming for. I wouldn't persevere if I wasn't still breastfeeding in a dark room so often!

Also using mobile site on chrome on Android and this happens all the time. Also terribly slow at loading compared to other sites. And sometimes the page has finished loading but you get halfway down the page and it is just blank halfway through a post!

Naoko Tue 12-Apr-16 11:44:43

Yeah that's been going on for months, very annoying. Chrome/Android 4.3 here (and yes, the age of the phone probably isn't helping the loading speed in this case...)

LilithTheKitty Tue 12-Apr-16 11:48:12

Same here. I also thought it was a fat fingers/dodgy phone combination.

LetThereBeCupcakes Tue 12-Apr-16 11:50:13

Another one here thinking it was just me / my phone!

LineyReborn Tue 12-Apr-16 11:55:00

Yep, me too.

cozietoesie Tue 12-Apr-16 12:58:55

I've been getting this recently on the new App.

AmysTiara Tue 12-Apr-16 13:03:11

Yep me too. Annoying.

BertieBotts Tue 12-Apr-16 13:03:59

Oh good not just me then! smile

JoolsSchmools Tue 12-Apr-16 13:09:21

Me too.
Patiently waiting for when the android app comes out (this decade hopefully) as I'm guessing not much can be done about it

MoreGilmoreGirls Tue 12-Apr-16 13:11:57

Happens to me all the time, it's usually a sponsored thread so I was wondering if it happened on purpose. Bloody annoying angry

ouryve Tue 12-Apr-16 13:12:55

Yes - it's happening to me.

Not unlike the big jump that happens on the desktop site.

There's obviously a big script, somewhere, that takes a while to load, causing problems for everyone using the site via a browser. That and the freezing problem have made me give up, a few times now.

LineyReborn Tue 12-Apr-16 13:15:40

Big script to load = too many flashing fucking adverts

cozietoesie Tue 12-Apr-16 14:14:35

Thinking about it, I may, more often, have been getting the thread 'just above' than any greater distance.

scandichick Tue 12-Apr-16 14:23:20

I'm the same as cozie, lately it's the thread above the one I wanted that opens if I don't wait for the slow banner to load.

BeccaMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 12-Apr-16 14:52:10

Hi all - sounds like this needs to get over to Tech straight away.

Has anyone noticed any particular ads when this happens?

Queenbean Tue 12-Apr-16 14:57:44

Hi Becca, thanks

It tends to be after I've been on style and beauty very ugly sandals at the moment that new ads pop up

ThursdayNextIsMyHero Tue 12-Apr-16 14:58:27

I've noticed this too, but only for the last month or two. I assumed it was my phone. I'm using the mobile site on Android 5.1

cozietoesie Tue 12-Apr-16 15:01:08

For me, I've noticed it on the new app, Becca, so that may make it not so much an ad issue?

BeccaMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 12-Apr-16 15:37:00

Hi cozie - yes, you're probably right, good point! Tech are looking into it now so hopefully we will know soon. Thank you.
