Can’t open comment thread in new tab (iOS/Safari/iPad)

In the previous comment system, I could long-press on the date of a comment, which would pop up iOS Safari’s option to open in a new tab. With the new system, it never appears. If I wait until the date is turned into the oval (showing the long-press has taken place), and I drag, I get “right-click to open in a new window” text appearing inside the oval.

Device: iOS 12.3.1, Safari, iPad Pro and iPad Air.

    Thanks. Yes, we've encountered a few issues with the touch-screen devices, and I'll make sure this one is on the list. Appreciate you raising it here.
    Meanwhile, if you want to use the old-style comments, it's still possible. Go to this site and the older version will be in use throughout the site.
