    As I am scrolling through articles, etc... This is coming up every time I lift my finger off the screen. It just started this evening and I have no idea what I did to prompt it to begin. Any ideas?

    How long is your finger staying stationary on the screen before lifting it off? If you release your finger as soon as you stop swiping, does this still happen?

    Immediately. I know historically with Android on all my other phones, if you tap and hold, this comes up. but this is sort of annoying the way its working now.

    i have the same concerns as yours. it's really annoying for the "copy text" to pop-up every time i scroll down. any luck in removing it? let me know... i'm also figuring things on my own but let me know if you succeeded. Thanks!

    I have also just started encountering this, only on Facebook's app. Specifically only within individual posts, not on general timeline scrolling.

    I have noticed on my Note 4 that if you hover your finger close enough over the screen without actually touching the screen a pop up will pop up.

    This is happening on my Note 7 as well as my husband's S7. Several other friends are seeing it too, but I don't know their phone models.

    It happens when I an reading a long Facebook post in the Facebook app. If there's a long post and I tap "Continue Reading", the Copy Text button pops up as I scroll. It doesn't happen while scrolling through my timeline or reading comments on a post.

    Yes, I have noticed that as well. Freaking annoying!

    I've noticed a host of weirdo issues with Facebook since the android update.

    It seems it's a Facebook issue. I'm in the Facebook beta program, maybe that's why I found it sooner and everyone else is getting it recently.

    If everyone is only noticing this on Facebook, then definitely send Facebook feedback, either through the app or via email: android-support@fb.com

    Yep, started just a few days ago. Is it a regression in the app? I thought initially my touch screen was dirty, but the issue persisted. Clearly someone has tweaked the hitbox or timing for the long-press.

    how hard can it be for the FB developers to spot and fix it?
    (running version 92, which tells me the assertion that build 80 works was made a long time ago, and it is possible to roll back)
