Description Amir E. Aharoni 2011-02-12 14:55:56 UTC
Both and are displayed left-to-right in the mobile version. I tried on Windows XP and on my mobile phone (Samsung Monte). People are actually complaining about it.

Confirm problem on iPhone and Ubuntu+Firefox. This is very important to get fixed soon.
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2011-04-29 17:59:40 UTC
I'm seeing this on the *home page* for etc ...

... but actual *article pages* are coming up RTL:

... except sometimes they *do* come up LTR on the first view, then RTL on the second.

Might be related to caching or such; the home pages might always come up wrong because they're not showing a regular page as such?
Comment 3 Hampton Catlin 2011-05-23 13:11:28 UTC
Fixed in the most recent release (deploying soon)
Comment 4 Amir E. Aharoni 2012-01-10 21:42:54 UTC
I'm seeing the same problem on the Android app now. Regression?
Comment 5 Amir E. Aharoni 2012-01-13 10:49:21 UTC
I reopened it in RC5, but it doesn't seem to happen in RC5. Fixed?
