On Android phones and tablets: Publish Online skips pages when trying to swipe from page-to-page in certain Publish Online documents.
The thread on the forums is here: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2419718
The documents that have been reported to exhibit this behavior include:
1, "Five Days from Nowhere," found here https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/using/publish-online.html
- And also this document that's in my Publish Online gallery https://indd.adobe.com/view/ab79b8c6-1265-44e3-aeae-7dccfb89cd94

In InDesign 2021, publish online refuses to complete. When we close the dialog box and reopen it later, it refuses to let us do another publish online.
The issue has been fixed and pages are not getting skipped now when viewed on Android devices.
Thanks & Regards,

Publish online has a fabulous feature, it shows the percent views by device type. Since my doc views are less than 50% on desktop browsers I can tell that POTENTIALLY HALF MY VIEWERS ARE NOT SEEING EVERY PAGE due to this bug which, today is still not fixed, nearly a year since it was identified. I abandoned Publish Online long ago and deleted my docs from the host site. I posted here before (see below) and on the InDesign Secrets forum. I emailed Sakshi Verma directly without a response.
What's up with this? I love the ability to publish online but I cannot take a chance on viewers seeing something other than what I intended.

This issue has been flagged nearly a year ago now. It still plagues my projects and makes me reluctant to send indd projects to clients. Any chance it'll be fixed soon?

I can't use "Publish onLine: I get an erreur #80 "Publis Online n'est pas actuellement disponible pour votre entreprise" What's that? I'm not a Company !

To follow up on the post I made in the original thread, I want to make sure it was clear that the page problem exists on a Microsoft Surface Pro tablet in ALL browsers, Edge, IE, and Chrome, as well as on my Android tablet and Android phone.
This bug makes the Publish Online option essentially useless as I can't distribute work when it might be opened on a tablet. Given the severity, I can't imagine the issue is common or there would be lots of screaming. Could there be a setting in ID, unique to only some of us, that does not play well with PubOnline?
We have reproduced the issue and it is being looked upon by team. You can directly reach out to me in case of any concern at email@example.com.
