Jolla browser has a menu bar at the bottom of the screen, which appears when you scroll down browser screen. This is a handy way to access browser menu.

Unfortunately browser menu bar gets easily in a way of browsing, since the menu bar will disappear only when you scroll screen upwards. This is especially annoying when browsing in landscape mode where vertical screen area is even more limited.

In my opinion menu bar could be made automatically disappear after a set delay of time and then reappear again when browser detects screen scrolling changes from up to down or stop to downward (as it is working now).

I suggest, that Jolla adds Auto hide menu bar setting in browser settings. There should be selection for turning auto hide on/off and selectable time delay (1-5 sec.)

Totally agree, I found out that video playback on Vimeo is a bit difficult because the adress bar keeps getting in the way(other then the video won't be played).

Another solution would to be able to hide the browser bar manually as suggested here: https://together.jolla.com/question/1300/feature-request-hide-browser-bar-on-fullscreen-pages/
