Seen on mobile web, Brave browser version 1.27.109, Android 10, cannot confirm on other browsers (yet).

Following, then unfollowing a question triggers a pop-up reading:

You're no longer following this answer

pop-up reading "you're no longer following this answer"

Presumably this should read "you're no longer following this question", or "this post", at the very least.

The post in the image is this one, which at the time of writing does not have any answers, deleted or otherwise.

Searching for [bug] follow question answer and sorting by newest (query link) did not bring up any obvious duplicate.

    upvoted but not sure if they will fix it since mobile views are getting deprecated and they have mentioned they will be adding status-declined to any mobile-only bug reports. See meta.stackexchange.com/questions/367609/… Sep 11, 2021 at 16:40
  • @Cave I don't have access to a computer at the moment. If you do, can you please edit the post to state whether this happens on computers as well? If so, then we can remove the [mobile-web] tag

    I tried it in both the mobile and responsive theme and only the mobile theme is affected. Sep 11, 2021 at 17:03

    This issue appears to affect only mobile views. In order to determine the post type, SE uses $followBtn.hasClass('js-follow-question');. Apparently, that class is missing from the follow button on mobile. Sep 11, 2021 at 17:19
  • @Jenayah You can try reproducing this by clicking the “full site” link in the footer. Sep 11, 2021 at 17:21

    Confirmed on a phone (FF Browser), when you use the full site you get a different message than the mobile site provides for exactly the same action, unfollowing a question. The mobile-web tag is correctly used.
