I tried to flag a question on Stack Overflow and when the dialog prompted I wasn't able to close it nor scroll through the flagging options.

Update: Went to another question to try again and it let me close the dialog but answer textarea continues to overlap it as shown in the picture.


  • iPhone 5 with iOS 7
  • Safari

Steps to reproduce:

  • Click on flag
  • Click on 'It should be closed fir another reason'
  • Answer textarea overlaps and doesn't leave clicking in any other option that gets behind it.

    Maybe you should wait until you get home to post a question...

  • Can you clarify if you are using the mobile or full version of the site?

I cannot duplicate this bug. I tried using Mobile Safari on iOS 6 and iOS 7 devices, using both the desktop site and the mobile site. In all cases, I was able to scroll through, and close, the flagging modal.

  • added more info on the report. Thanks!

  • Does it persist if you use Private Browsing mode? Also, maybe the layout of the flagging dialog is different based on rep. If so, I may be getting served different HTML than you. Feb 21, 2014 at 17:16
  • I've got < 1k rep so flagging options should ve normal ones. I'll try with private mode, when I took the screenshot I was using normal navigation.
