Can't close Toolbar/Admin Bar Menu on small screens without activating menu item

I am using the toolbar on the front end. When I tap to open the menu and then want to close it again without visiting a link, there is no way to close it, when the menu is very long and covers the whole screen. Even on the standard "Dashboard, Themes, Customise, etc." Menu that happens. When I click the icon again I get taken to the link attached to that icon.

As a solution it would be good to be able to just tap the icon again to close the menu, as is the behaviour of the "burger" of the toolbar in the admin area. Same problem goes for the profile link on the right. When there are lots of links in there, it also covers the screen and you cannot close it, as tapping the avatar again takes you to your profile.

Could that be enhanced? Or is there a patch already?
