Steps to reproduce:

Tap and hold on a link, ore multiple links after each other.

Actual results:

The opening of the link context context menu is sometimes delayed. In some cases you can tap+hold on multiple links, or multiple times on the same link, before it responds, in which case when it finally responds, multiple menus will open at the same time above each other,

Expected results:

The link context menu open immediately.

 How many links did you have to open before this started happening to you? I've opened about 25 links and everything still worked fine for me? Could you provide more information regarding your issue please?
 Could you also try reinstalling your app or doing a clear data to see if the issue still persists.

Thank you.

I don't know of a simple way to trigger it. It happens occasionally, mostly during heavy usage, maybe in low power mode.

I have tried reinstalling, but that didn't help.

This is on a Nexus 5 BTW

 I've tried to reproduce your issue on several other devices with and without the power saving option on and I was still not able to properly reproduce it. If you are able to narrow it down to a few steps to reproduce it would be very helpful. I will keep an eye on this in care I will be able to reproduce it in the future.

 Or maybe you could try to reproduce it and give us a log when it actually happens, I think that would be very helpful.

 You will need to set up the android SDK tools and enable USB debugging on your device here is a guide on how to achieve this:

 After you have properly installed and set up everything you will need to start up the monitor app found in YourAndroidSDKInstallationPath\Android\android-sdk\tools (eg: C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\tools) in that folder you will find a monitor.bat file you just need to run it and connect your device to the computer.

 Try to reproduce the issue again and save a log file and upload it here. Maybe someone could take a look at it and see what is actually happening.
