Screen scrolls to bottom when moving menu items on mobile

When tapping on a menu item in Appearance > Menus on a mobile browser, dragging it to the desired position becomes an almost impossible task because the screen keeps scrolling to the bottom.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Access wp-admin in a mobile browser
  2. Go to Appearance > Menus
  3. Create a menu and add four or more menu items
  4. Tap and hold on a menu item and drag it to a desired position


Screen remains in current position and I'm able to move menu items around smoothly


Screen scrolls to the bottom and I'm unable to see where to position the menu item

Issue happens on both mobile Safari and Chrome. However, this does not occur in the Menus section of the Customizer where I had a much better experience managing menus.

It is almost impossible to make multilayered menus with this problem on my iPhone. I hope you can fix it soon or upgrade this to high priority.

The customizer kind of worked but sometimes the screen went really big making all the selections small, the bottom got cut off or white with no options. Scrolling the list was also a bit difficult. We need a tiny bit more white space on the side.

Any updates or quick fixes in the meantime? I haven't been able to do anything on my end.
