Cannot reproduce regression in editor "scroll" on mobile focus

Affected version

This bug affects Xenforo.com's forums, so this is not install specific.

On mobile (iOS, chrome or safari) when people click on the quickreply to answer, the keyboard popups and hides the editor entirely.
Worse than that, only the top bar of the editor remains, which does not allow scrolling ( it doesn't move if you click/thumb there)

This seems to be a regression from "2.1 beta"-times

This may be related to the fact you did a recent change , on 2.1.2, on the same subject but for Android this time.

Could this bug come back and forth between ios/android ?

Finally, I wish to underline other people are complaining about the impossibility to "scroll" the page if people put their thumb on the editor bar. This is very weird and unexpected and looks like a bug to everyone.

So these two bugs combined make the mobile experience very problematic.

As you can see from the attached video, I’m not able to reproduce this.

I'm not sure if we're missing some steps to reproduce it, but on the whole it doesn't seem possible to produce the results you're reporting.

Not quite as I don't actually know what you tapped on to focus the editor and bring up the keyboard the second time.

I'm not holding out much hope, but a new version of Froala has been rolled out here, would be interesting to know if you can still reproduce this, and if you can, specifically how.

Step 1: Click reply to insert the quote
Step 2: Scroll up and remove focus from editor
Step 3: Scroll back down and tap anywhere inside the editor

Keyboard will pull up and you will not know where in the editor focus actually is.

@Chris D While you might not be able to reproduce this, most every one of my members who use iPhones and iPads certainly can, and are moaning about it. is there nothing we can do about it?

I find I have to make sure the reply box is at the top of the screen, that seems to be the only way around this bug.
