Bulk action missing/hidden on taxonomies

I have found this issue on mobile. When I go to taxonomies like category/tags the bulk action on top of the table is missing. After inspecting it I found that it is getting hidden using CSS. We can make it visible there because if someone wants to bulk delete then they have to select from top and then have to scroll down to do so. Just because it is hidden using CSS still there are CSS rules putting margins and all there.

For this we have to remove this css only:

@media screen and (max-width: 782px){
.form-wrap>p, .tablenav .view-switch, .actions, .displaying-num, {
    display: none;

This will explain what I want to say :

Also here I am seeing that search box is at bottom we can put it just before the table.

Can someone provide a visual of what the patch does? I'd love to be able to provide some UI feedback without having to download a patch. Thank you!

  • Focuses css added

The below CSS can help, it will also work for post types.

@media only screen and (max-width: 782px){
.form-wrap>p, .tablenav .view-switch, .actions, .displaying-num, {
    display: block;
} span.displaying-num {
        position: absolute;
        right: 0;
        margin: 0;
        font-size: 14px;
} {
    position: relative;
