Post scriptum: IMHO as the description of bug 1 shows it is pretty
obvious that the bug is not solved so I do not understand why it's
status is "fix released".

This is simply not the case. Sorry for repeating, but it seems to me
that somehow the original idea has been forgotten. And a smartphone is
not a PC and a tablet isn't either! I do not know a single person
using a smart phone or tablet as a replacement for the PC - in best
case those mobile devices are used _in addition to_ PC or laptop.
