I'm getting a bug with the floating social options whereby it trieds to float so high on the page that it blocks the use of the flag function. It's happening in mobile Safari on an IPad running iOS 5. I'll have to go try some browsers on my desktop, but this wasn't happening before today. Earlier this weekend, the floating social chunk worked just fine.
Sorry for any frustration this might be causing and thanks for reporting this.
I just sent the information to our engineering team and was told that we pushed out a fix for this yesterday.
Please let us know if such does not seem the case and you are still experiencing the problem.
I am having similar problems with the floating social options on my iPad with iOS 5.1.1.
It also covers videos on video hubs on the iPad.
I notice it only starts happening after scrolling down and then back up.
It seems to be fine on my Windows desktop. Tested with Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and IE. (yes I have them all). Only Safari on the iPad has the problem.
I am using Google Chrome with Windows XP presently and having no issues. It might be exclusive to the iPad.
Actually if it's happening to me, it is going to also be happening to anyone else running iOS 5 on an Apple device, which totals now about 365 million iPhones and iPads.
After testing, I can say the problem persists on iOS even if you use an alternate browser. I finally found one which allows me to write complete Hubs but it's got the floating issue too. The FB "like" button always lines right up and totally blocks the "flag" button.
I know what you are referring to relache. I've been trying to find a way to work on my hubs using my iPad. Nothing I found supports the way HP implemented the text capsules. Can you share the name of the browser you found for the iPad that lets you type into text capsules?
Things are looking much better now. The options still rise up and cover the flag feature when you scroll back up a Hub, but then they pop back down to where they are supposed to sit. Things work, they just do so in a herky-jerky fashion.

I haven't seen this while browsing HP by desktop. So it may be something special for HP mobile users. If so, it needs tweaking.I was trying to view one of my hubs to approve a comment, and I just gave up in frustration. A horizontal bar ad kept trying to fasten itself to the bottom of the screen,...

When did floating adds come in? Why?Why do some hubs have floating adds across the page that float to the end of the hub? I find them annoying when voting or commenting on a hub & almost click on them when they flash in the way!

How do you change the home page on Safari, on an Ipad?Its really frustrating when they offer to help you set up an ipad at the ipad store, only to set your homepage to a page you don't want. Does anyone know how to change it? I have looked around and can't figure it out.
