In the event of not having the iOS app, or needing a function usable only on the 'main' site (like viewing active Moderator Election pages), it is sometimes necessary to open the Desktop format of the site to see data. Also, sometimes, you have to use the Desktop format of the site for some functionality which isn't embedded into the Mobile app (i.e. reading deleted posts/threads/questions as a 10k+ user on sites, when you don't have a computer handy).
Relatively recently, within the past two weeks, comments no longer show in Mobile Safari when looking at the Desktop format of the site. It affects the 'embedded' web browser in the Mobile Stack Exchange app, and also the Safari bundled with the iOS.
This has been tested by me on multiple sites, and replicated on all sites I've tested (SciFi, Ask Ubuntu, Unix and Linux, and also StackOverflow)
My current workaround involves utilizing Google Chrome mobile to achieve this, but this is a pain to constantly switch between Chrome and the Stack Exchange app or mobile Safari. Nuking the Safari cache doesn't help fix this either.
Has this issue been observed by anyone else, and is there a fix in the works, potentially, for this recent issue?
