  1. Click on the "Click to reply" button on a message in chat (in browser) ->
    Write a reply ->
    The message to which you are replying is removed before you send the reply ->
    Message is removed from chat ->
    Send reply ->
    The removed message is still (partially) visible in the reply, in the "replying to" header

    This may not be the desired behavior. The reply should not (partially) show the deleted message but rather "replying to a deleted message" or similar.

  2. If someone Whispers to you, but you change your username before replying, you can end up being unable to write back, with a message at the bottom:

    "This user has turned on "Block Whispers from Strangers" in their privacy settings and must start a conversation with you first."

    Thus, you end up with people writing to you and wanting an answer from you, but you can't write back, even though you should be able to, as they did started the conversation first.

  3. FIX the Autohost system!
    It hasn't been working for MONTHS now. I want to support my friends and my team, and sometimes I'm not able to send a /host to my own channel.
    My autohost list was carefully made, and it's incredibly frustrating it's not working! Please Twitch, this is important for people that want to support their friends, teams and the communities that they have contact with!

  4. Hello, this is a very minor bug but it confused me for a bit.
    I was trying to get all of twitch's global emotes using v5 api and emoteset 0, everything seemed fine but I've noticed that this emote [oO](|.)[oO] (regex of course- might want to mention it somewhere in docs) that should match either o.o or oo only shows the emote when typing o_o on browser chat for some reason. I can confirm o.o does work on the official android app though. This is very minor and not exactly related to dev but you might still want…

  5. It seems that for some reason when you are idle in a stream it is autofocussing on the follow/unfollow button.

    This is bad!

    No wonder why some ppl unfollow without knowing they did.

    Needs fix!

  8. The automatic link parser is rather overzealous. It currently interprets any sequence of alphanumeric characters, a dot/period, and more alphanumeric characters (with no spaces in between) as a link. As a result, any time someone forgets to put a space between two sentences, or deliberately types something like "notbad.jpg", it gets turned into a (broken) link. Furthermore, if the streamer has link filtering turned on, such occurrences will result in the entire message being blocked when there's no actual reason for it to be.

    The link parser needs to be smarter. Maybe make it require either two dots/periods with characters…

  10. I have users blocked yet I can still see their message if themselves as a mod or the streamer pinned their message.

    Blocked should not be able to see a user whatsoever, pinned or otherwise. This seems like a major bug in the chat system that to show toxic users which could set people off by seeing their username even just by pinning their username and message. In the terms where the streamer doesn't do anything with toxic users against other users.

  11. There is a bug related to the interaction between Twitch chat and the For You panel.
    When some text is typed into the chat box (but enter is not pressed) and the mouse hovers over a channel in the For You panel and then hovers off the channel name, the Text box will resume focus but then any further text being typed will occur in reverse.

    It may be related to the 'focus-visible' css class being removed from the chatbox element when the channel hover is activated.

  12. The new Tool Tip pop up that has been released site wide breaks all site functionality in Chrome and Firefox whenever a UI element is hovered over. Including emote selection, all chat UI elements, mod tools, channel points, chat identities, or any UI element that has a hover over text pop up effect. Issue can be replicated on multiple systems and multiple browsers. Embedded chat in OBS uses the old tool tips and is unaffected. When the tool tip is active the entire website cannot be scrolled, including chat and main channel pages. When clicking the tool tip, the site…

  13. When a user that has a chat highlight (Returning Chatter, Suspicious User etc) the message content will be pushed slightly off screen, hidden beneath the "Send a message" box in Mod view. This means that mods have to either manually scroll down the chat to see the message, or wait for another chat message to push it up.

    This is particularly an issue if, for example, a suspicious or monitored user says something undesirable that we might miss for longer than we would like to.

    It seems that the height of the chat highlight banner is not factored into the…

  14. The sound on the newly implemented Alerts that can be added as a browser source works intermittently. The sound works fine when testing using the "send test alert" button. However, when I am live, most of the sounds stop playing a few seconds through the redeem

  16. Just a small visual bug I have encountered in a very specific window size but It could be useful to fix it to prevent future clipping with other elements.

    I think the emotes pop z index could be changed up to be the same z-index as other overlays. To prevent it from clipping with other chat elements, currently the stream title

    I believe it to be: --z-index-overlay: 3000 and is currently --z-index-default: 1

  17. Date observed: 5/5/2022

    Twitch chat is causing memory leaks. I only observed this because I was watching a streamer with 100k+ viewers and my computer crashed with 32GB of memory with all other applications closed.

    In Dev Tools on a Chromium browser:

    1. Select "Performance monitor" in Dev tools.
    2. Observe the JS heap size and the DOM nodes, they progressively increase as chats are sent.

    Another way to observe:

    1. select "Memory" tab in Dev tools.
    2. Use "Allocation instrumentation on timeline".
    3. Record and observe the memory allocation.

    Note: tested on Edge and Google Chrome with all the extensions turned off.

  19. As a viewer, I don't want my "send a message" box flickering, so that my eyes can be saved.

    Steps to reproduce:
    when watching a stream,
    1. click on the "send a message" box and don't type anything
    2. hover the mouse cursor over the 'followed channels' or 'recommended channels' without typing anything
    3. you can notice the "send a message" box flickering between the 'clicked' & 'non-clicked' mode

    *It's not a big deal... but kind of disturbing.
