Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 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

Clicking "edit" for a specific revision on the mobile theme, gets one the expected revision and an edit screen with a dropdown to select another revision. Good. However, selecting another revision on that edit screen has no effect; while on the regular site the page reloads with a different URL, on mobile nothing happens.

 

Chrome remote debugging does not show any error. It seems that

<select id="revisions-list" name="revisions-list" tabindex="99">

...has no handler on mobile, while on the regular sites the page itself defines:

<script type="text/javascript">
    $(function() {        
        $("#wmd-input").focus();
        $("#title").focus();
        $("#revisions-list").change(function() {
          window.location = '/posts/140020/edit/' + $(this).val();
        });
    });
</script>

Tested on both the stock Android 4.1 browser, Chrome on Android 4.1, and Safari on iOS 4.3.3. Same results when using the mobile theme in a regular desktop browser.

As an aside, clicking "edit" on mobile always gets me the edit screen with the revision dropdown, even when clicking "edit" or "improve" below a post. I assume that this is by design. (It's just like when not using inline editing on the regular site, like when one has JavaScript disabled.)

A fix for this will go out in the next build.
