Description (last modified by johnjamesjacoby)
Changes in MobileSafari in iOS 5 (all betas so far) are causing the Admin Bar to render unexpectedly.
Uploaded screen shots from iOS 5 Beta 7 on both iPhone and iPad. Screen shots were taken from testbp.org, which is running BuddyPress + bbPress. The admin bar pictured, while having modified menus, does not have any non-WP-core CSS that could contribute to this bug.
It appears that iOS 5 obeys fixed positioning rules differently than before. The admin bar is now properly fixed to the top regardless of the window Y position, where if memory serves in iOS 4 it used to remain at the 0px top, unfixed.
The first problem comes when zoomed. The fixed top + left positioning means you can never see the right side of the Admin Bar when zoomed in. The Admin Bar properly zooms and retains the 100% width of the browser window like I would expect it to, I just can never get to it.
The next problem appears when zoomed too. As you scroll down the bottom of the page, the Admin Bar slowly creeps upwards until it is out of view. This happens on both iPhone and iPad.
