Mobile: Long pressing links is unreliable

Steps to reproduce

  1. Have a page with a handful of outgoing links
  2. Long press each link and try opening them all in new tabs consistently and efficiently

Did you follow the troubleshooting guide? [Y/N]


Expected result

Opening tabs easily on mobile.

Actual result

Pressing and holding on a link to open it in a new tab is finicky and can either;

  1. Open the link in the current tab – happens when holding down for too short… I think? It can also open the long press menu and open the link in the current tab at the same time if you let go right when it vibrates (I assume the vibration is there to tell you that the long press is registered, but it doesn’t really mean that)
  2. Start dragging the link (useless on mobile) – happens when holding down and then accidentally moving (dragging) your finger
