Suggestion: Increase hyperlink area/hitbox in Unread Topics

I'm not sure if it's specific to Firefox on Android, but I'm experiencing a very frustrating issue when trying to click the 'New' hyperlinks in Unread Topics view.

Quite often it takes several attempts before a 'click' is registered. It's especially bad when the hyperlink is a '1'. I don't seem to have these issues with other sites and it's across two devices running different versions of Android (6 and 7).

I don't suppose the hyperlink area could be made larger? Either by increasing the font of the numbers, making it a button or including the speech bubble in the hitbox?

@bobpullen - make it larger - that might need a change to the style guide!  Pinch and zoom might be helpful though! Funny

@bobpullen

I don't have a problem but I agree the window for the click is rather tight to the number
However - I have a rather sensitive gaming mouse and I would think that with a normal mouse or worse still a touchpad it would be difficult in the extreme

A question for you - how do you get the speech bubble as I don't see that

Zooming does help, but it shouldn't be necessary.

Err, no idea. I assumed that's what everybody saw Undecided
