Browser issue Unable to scroll to the beginning or end of long thread titles when creating threads on mobile

When composing a new thread on mobile (iPhone 6S iOS10) The cursor won't scroll to the text out of the bounds of the text box size.

Same in either direction, tried with 3D touch cursor and long press magnifying glass

Same when trying to edit the thread title

I have noticed this too.

Unfortunately it affects all HTML text inputs so it isn't an XF bug and seems to be a bug in iOS. It affects other browsers besides Safari.

I'll leave this open though in case there's a workaround but generally there's not a lot we could or should do in cases like this and we should wait for the next iOS build to fix it.

I'm not sure if this is related, but did the quick reply box used to scroll with the cursor when typing long replies?

I've noticed on both XF and VB forums I need to keep stopping and scrolling to reposition the paragraph these days, I don't seem to remember having to do that in the past.
