Weird focus/color behavior on touch devices (like iOS)

Using an iOS device, when you scroll and click on the sidebar, you can get buggy color behavior in the sidebar. Apparently Android works too.


  • Open the admin interface on iOS
  • Touch to open the menu
  • Touch to navigate to the Comments screen
  • Touch to open the menu again
  • Touch "Posts" to open the sub menu

At this point, I have three highlighted items: Dashboard, Posts, and Comments. In other scenarios, I can get sub menu items (like "All Posts") to be highlighted as well, mostly from scrolling up and down a bit.

Screenshot of the worst case scenario attached (four highlighted things).

This also seemed to occur for me in the latest version of Opera
