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

I ran into an obscure crash bug today: I decided to dismiss one of my comments during a particularly long refresh. It turns out that reliably crashes the app.

Here's the full reproduction steps:

  1. Find an answer.
  2. Hit 'Add comment' to leave a comment on that answer.
  3. Refresh the answers - you'll still have your comment entry box active.
  4. Whilst the answers are refreshing, hit the [v] icon to dismiss the comment entry.
  5. The app crashes.

That's it. Questions seem to be fine - it's just the answers crashing.

enter image description here

(The black area is where my keyboard was - the app didn't resize to fill that area. It seems that once I dismissed the comment, it at least managed to close the keyboard before crashing.)

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

In addition of the Q&A page renewal since v1.0.50, I couldn't repro this from step 3 on v1.0.82 (beta): while posting a comment, the app will show a progress dialog, preventing any interaction with the app (e.g. tapping the "hide comment box" icon doesn't do anything). After that, the comment box will be automatically closed. – bacon Feb 4 at 2:51
Yep, this seems fine now. – doppelgreener Feb 4 at 3:13
