I'm logged in via my iPhone 6 Plus as usual. Using Safari or Chrome or Opera when viewing a thread the Quote Buttons are missing, rendering it impossible for me to respond to threads with a quote.

This is not the first time, but usually it only lasts an hour or so, upon returning to the site the buttons reappear.... But this time I've waited eight hours and they are still missing.

Please forgive me if this is posted in the wrong location. I searched but could not find a link that was dedicated to forum problems.

Thank You

Have you tried turning your phone off and on again. This may not help at all, but always the first thing I try when I have an issue.

Thanks for your fast response.

Yes I've turned off my phone as part of many different approaches I've taken before finally posting about this situation.

The problem of the missing quote button has been intermittent, occurring only once or twice every few months. No matter what browser I use, or if I choose Desktop or Mobile User Agent from Settings within the respective browser, the result is always the same.

As I mentioned earlier what's odd is that if I log out of MacRumors and wait up to an hour it usually is fine when I return. Checking the time presently it's been exactly 12 hrs 18 min. that the problem has persisted.

Any further suggestions are welcome. Presently traveling, it's the one time I didn't bring my MBA....my mistake. :)

Have you tried clearing your internet history? I'm on an iPhone 6+ now with no issues, so it must just be local to you.
