From time to time I log into Stack Overflow via my smartphone (nexus 1, android 2.3.6 I know it's old but it serves me well). I miss some of the functionality of the website in its mobile version especially the ability to flag comments. I know I can flag questions and answers but I don't understand why flagging a comment is not possible. Any good reason for this?

    you can search on the mobile site by expanding the top bar Nov 23, 2013 at 8:08
  • Instead, I switch to full site, present in the bottom of the site.

    @Bala I prefer the mobile site when I'm on my 360x640 touchscreen with crappy CPU. The full site takes ages to run its javascript Nov 23, 2013 at 8:31

    Flagging amd seeing vote breakdowns are the number 1 and 2 reasons I change to desktop mode Nov 23, 2013 at 8:33
  • @RichardTingle I don't get vote breakdowns on my phone either way :-( I don't have 1k meta rep and mobile Opera's support of userscripts is... bad. Nov 23, 2013 at 8:36
  • and even the share functionality :(

  • @RichardTingle for comment flag, you have to zoom that area and click it.

  • @Bala I attempted to zoom into your comment on mobile mode and flag it (as what I'm going to call a test) but on clicking the area under the upvote there was no response Nov 23, 2013 at 16:34
  • @RichardTingle really sorry, ya not working and i mentioned it for full site using mobile and also i noticed now @ notation also not working in mobile mode, really sorry.
