  • Focuses ui administration added

I realized that changing the position of#adminmenuback from Absolute to Fixed fixes the problem.

.auto-fold #adminmenuback {
	position: fixed;

Hi @promz
I check it on latest version of Firefox and Opera with Windows OS, I can't reproduce the problem.

@man4toman you should probably check on a real device. Here are the screencasts:

Android: https://drive.google.com/file/d/16VNImnh2g9Ncg7cXU8XvwabGcKJEtzDS/view?usp=sharing

iPhone (horizontal scroll problem is not there but there is another scrolling problem):

The problem is with the older WordPress versions too.

Hi @promz, welcome to WordPress Trac! Thanks for the report.

I'm removing the trunk version, as this doesn't seem to be a regression in 5.2.
