    Had it happen a couple times now, seems like a css issue perhaps?

    It doesn't happen every time, and a refresh seems to fix it.

    This has already been reported but I'll leave this thread open as it would be useful to have feedback for this specific issue.

    This possibly seems related to ads but we haven't been able to recreate the issue our end which makes debugging it impossible.

    If anyone is able to help please let me know. Does it also happen on desktop if you resize your browser to go into mobile view mode?

    Can confirm refreshing does not fix it, it just changes the glitch locations to different ones. I did notice the initial loading of the page, the middle ad of the page did not load, but the refresh had them load, and the glitches were less.

    Also is it just me, or the ads on mobile are so much more? There's two huge square ads in-between sticky threads alone.

    Can also confirm it is an Ad issue, the refresh loaded all the ads, and this particular one had zero glitches.

    Before Screenshot_2019-09-20-04-29-38-283_com.miui.videoplayer. After IMG_20190920_042611.

    So it has something to do with ads not loading in some instances, which breaks things. I noticed if that ad wouldn't load, so would the space allocated for the ad wouldn't load, it would disappear and adjust the other elements to fit the empty space.

    I would like to add that, as a patron, I am adfree, and the formating bug happens at random moments.

    I forgot
    I can't seem to get this to trigger myself, tried a few Android devices I have sitting around (couple phones and 3 tablets I was messing with earlier today), with no ads as patreon, with ads while logged out, and using an ad blocker (blokada) while logged out and everything works as it's intended, the issue just doesn't exist for me.

    Although I did notice that ads load much slower than the rest of the page contents do, perhaps that correlates with the issue?

    Which version of Android and Chrome are the people having this issue using? That'd probably help narrow down the issue I'd think.

    I currently have Android 9 on my S8 with 76.0.3809.132 version of Chrome, and the three tablets all have the same version of Chrome but different Android versions (5.1.1, 7.1, and 7.0).

    I got this on the thread right now. And it's quotes that seem to be the issue.

    You tried everything but a regular; while logged in without patreon or an adblocker. Because without any sort of blocker, at times the ads don't load, and the bug happens only then.

    Using Android 9 with the latest Chrome app from the Play Store as of writing 77.0.3865.73.

    Just to let you guys know we're working on this. I can get it to happen on my phone intermittently but never on desktop.

    We're working on it....

    I think I might have fixed this issue but need confirmation as I can't reproduce it consistently on my end.

    I'll wait to see what you guys have to say...
