Post NumPad button attempts to clear puzzle
Initial conditions:
Android KitKat smartphone.
Browser: Chrome or UC Browser (reproduced in both)
Signed in: doesn't matter
Puzzle: http://www.calcudoku.org/en/2017-06-30/10/3
Size: medium?.. (couldn't reproduce bug with small size)
NumPad position: left
Puzzle must not be empty (just a couple of digits will do).

That's what I do:
1. Press the NumPad button.
Now the buttons are at the bottom.
2. Press the NumPad button again.
The buttons move to the right, and a window pops up asking if I want to clear the whole puzzle.

Sometimes it's vice versa: the window pops up, I press “Cancel”, and then the buttons move to the right.

So far, I could not reproduce this bug with smaller puzzles (i.e. 6×6), nor does it show up in the non-mobile version of the site.

I haven't been able to reproduce this so far.

Is it possible for you to post / email me a screenshot?

thanks,

Patrick

I'm not sure how a screenshot can help, but OK, why not.
That's today's Medium Sudoku, http://www.calcudoku.org/sudoku/en/2017-07-14/9/2
Initial state:

After I've pressed the button next to 4 (I'll call it simply Square, OK?):

After I've pressed the Square (which is now beneath 4) again:

I can assure you that I do not press that button with the round arrow, but, as you can see, in the last screenshot it looks inset, as if I've pressed it.

Maybe it has something to do with the positions of the buttons?.. I mean, I tap the screen, the buttons move to the right, and now the round arrow is exactly where the Square used to be; perhaps my phone tries to handle the tap event twice?..
On the other hand, I've been using this phone for almost 4 years and never noticed any strange behavior.
