That is good to know :)
Please, have a read at: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam#Joining
and please, list your machines on the table - see Hardware Link on that

Being a 3 years tester for Ubuntu Communities, I do test each and every
possible thing. "Try Ubuntu GNOME without Installation" is there for a
reason and we need to cover each and everything ;)

Any Screenshot? or picture?

If this issue with Ubiquity, then it should affect all the other flavour -
