Since the big template upgrade posting and editing posts from my phone has been a bit weird.
I noticed this morning Bishop said he accidentally deleted a post, possibly due to the same issue.

When replying to another member's post I have the following options under 'Action':
1) Reply - when I hit this it does a reply with quotes.
2) Quote - does nothing when I hit this.

When editing my own post I have the following options under 'Action':
1) Reply - when I hit this it does a reply with quotes.
2) Quote - when I hit this it does an edit.
3) Edit - when I hit this it deletes the post.
4) Delete - (only available for a short time after posting) - does nothing when I hit this.

Essentially the button does whatever the action is below it in the list.

Initially I thought I had fat fingers and was hitting the wrong button - but now I'm sure that's not the case. The correct action briefly highlights after pushing it.
Once I figured out what was going on I just thought it must be some quirk of my phone as no one else seemed to be complaining - then I saw Bishop's post this morning and thought perhaps it's an issue with the site and could be fixed.

No problem if it can't be fixed as I know the work-around listed above.

Posting and editing Actions on my laptop work fine.

Agree 100% it's the same on iOS.

Has been so since the upgrade. Works fine on a PC or Mac.

Cheers

Can't be fixed at present, my skills aren't up to the latest standards so have to rely on the developers of the forum software to release a new template or I buy one.
I did buy one for this site but ended up having to get a refund from PayPal because the developer of the template went rogue.
