Identify Modal sometimes shows information from previous observation

I always thought it was a bug that the Identify Modal runs through data from previous observations when you click on Suggestions. Is that how it’s intended to work? I find that it really slows down my workflow, and that it often gets stuck such that I have to leave the Suggestions tab and come back (sometimes more than once) to get it to refresh to the data from the current observation.

Happens to me as well. In the unlikely event it’s intentional, I find it highly irritating.
I wonder if it’s only an issue for users with slow internet loading times?

I’ve got quite fast internet at my place, my guess is it’s on the iNat and/or browser side, probably the former, especially if the site is busy. There is a lot going on on the Identify page, it’s pretty resource hungry and makes a lot of API calls. It’s certainly not intentional.

So would this be appropriate to report as a bug? I know I would very much appreciate a fix.

For sure, but I can’t estimate when a fix might be, unfortunately.
