Android: Weird navigation warning and hangs on "saving" screen

What I’m trying to do

On my Android phone, I click on a link (URL or query link) in my note.

Very occasionally, I get a pop-up asking if I want to navigate away from the page, and warning about losing unsaved info.

(I neglected to screenshot the pop-up, sorry).

This warning makes no sense to me, but to be on the safe side I click cancel.

My note disappears from the screen and I get this “Saving” screen. And it just hangs there.

The animation continues (a darker purple bar continually moving to the right) but nothing else happens.

Things I have tried

After waiting a period of time (e.g. 10 min when it happened today) and it’s still on the saving screen, I force close and restart, and everything seems normal.

Note: it’s not easy to replicate, because it normally happens quite rarely. But it’s happened at least twice in the last week.

It’s not a new thing. I feel like it’s at least months old, probably over a year old.

(My Obsidian app is up-to-date, but my theme and plugins weren’t. I’ve updated them now.)
