HackerNews: Something broke scrolling on mobile?

Description of the issue:

Dragging on a comment now seems to try to scroll the comment instead of the page.
Need to drag in the margin next to comments, or try repeatedly until the page starts scrolling.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.

Open any comment page on HackerNews (e.g. https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=20857465) and touch & drag to scroll.
Need to try twice: first drag tries to scroll the comment, next drag scrolls the page.

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):

Forum says: “New users cannot upload attachments.”

Expected result:

Page scrolls (this used to work before the last update.

Reproduces how often:

Every time.

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):

Brave 1.2.0, Chromium 76.,0.3809.111
Android 9

Additional Information:

Scrolling used to work fine, and still works fine on Chrome and Firefox (beta) on Android.

Scott Bell (hackernews support) let me know that they tweaked the site’s markup, and scrolling is now working fine again on Brave.
