Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

While using SO on my iPhone, I often accidentally click the edit button (I know, tiny button, improbable, ridicule me all you want), or when I click it, I often want to change my mind. For me, the back button in mobile safari is my 'undo button', but when I do this, and the page reloads, then the edit button disappears! Reloading the page, starting a new window, clicking the question header all have no effect. Is this a bug, or intentional?

EDIT: This only works with other people's questions, not your own (or my own in my case).

Don't think this is by design.. I'll try reproing later. – Manishearth May 4 '12 at 3:40
I'm sorry that I can't upload pics on my iPhone... Just try it for yourselves and you'll (hopefully) see what I mean. – CodaFi May 4 '12 at 3:41
I know, that is annoying, even I don't usually upload screenshots taken from my iPad (sometimes I cheat and force-mobile on desktop to get screenshots). I'll first try force-mobile testing this, otherwise Ill try it on an iphone. – Manishearth May 4 '12 at 3:44
Facebook has an email address for each group/page that you can send a pic to... I wonder how hard it would be for SE to do something like that... – CodaFi May 4 '12 at 3:45
Not hard, but there are spam issues. We don't allow pics for low-rep users, and email can't be verified against rep (OK, it can, but the spam issues are still there.) – Manishearth May 4 '12 at 3:47
I've tried reproing on iOS 7.1.1 with no luck - can you confirm it's still happening and provide more detail? – Sklivvz May 12 '14 at 13:39
