Spoiler Tag not working

The spoiler tag is no longer working after the forum update. The spoiler information is in plain text. After mousing over the text it then works as expected.

I'm using Firefox.

Spoiler:
Here is text that should be hidden.

Same with chrome.

I really wish they would change the spoiler to a button that hides/shows the text when clicked on. It would be really helpful for making lists/posting big or a lot of pictures but still maintaining a good overview of the post and the thread.

Yep. Much like the minecraft texture pack forums, which is where I was introduced to this technique, it is a good idea and it works really well.

Are any of the Forum administrators aware of this? Is there a good way to contact them?

I'm pretty sure they check this forum section more often than they do their private messages.

Apparently someone has been doing some work on the spoiler tags, unfortunately it seems to have made matters worse. When I use Firefox, the spoilers are visible and there is no way to hide them, even passing the cursor over the spoilers do not hide them. When I use the iOS app, the spoilers are hidden and there is no way to expose them.

Works fine for me on Chrome and Firefox, haven't checked iOS yet.

I figured it out for Firefox. I'm using Ghostery to block trackers. When I allow the Google tracker to work, the spoiler tags work.

I still cannot see spoiler tag text using the Toucharcade app. I have no control of tracking, etc. in that app, so it is entirely a Toucharcade issue there.
