Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

When I click to edit a post on mobile, there is a drop down list of previous edits at the top. However, it does not seem as though it does anything.

Is this just for informational use, or is it broken?

I am using a Verizon Droid Pro, Android 2.3.3; Android Browser or Dolphin HD behave the same.

I can edit fine; just rollback does not work. Choosing any item in the dropdown has no effect at all; if no edits are submitted, nothing is edited. If edits are submitted, they are applied.

Oooh, I just earned my very first Tumbleweed badge from this. I didn't mean to, though. Honest!

Incidentally; I just tried it out on Firefox in the mobile view, and the same behavior prevails. So it doesn't seem like it's the browser.

Repro on mobile safari on your post (note I do not have edit privilege on meta, though) - drop down, select a version - nothing changes. – jrturton Feb 18 '12 at 11:49
From what I can see, the full site rollback view comes up on mobile. – Oded Jul 31 '14 at 13:25
@Oded nope. I just reproduced, will add screenshots. (also happens in mobile theme on desktop computer) – Shadow Wizard Jul 31 '14 at 13:46
I was about to up-vote this post, as I remember experiencing this. Then I realized I have committed never to upvote questions by this user. Ever. – Andrew Barber Jul 31 '14 at 13:48
@Oded this isn't related to mobile site theme, I just noticed it also happens in the full site. Choosing a revision does not load that revision (as I guess it should?) – Shadow Wizard Jul 31 '14 at 13:53
