If I read you right, you magnified in and want to scroll to the side to line up the text, but when you do that you pull the side menu? Drag your finger the way you want want to scroll, but also diagonally up at the same time like / It will scroll over and not pop a menu.
In the settings there's an option to turn off the slide out tool bar & bookmarks bar. If you uncheck it you'll have to push the little paper looking button on the phone. Idk if they're called captivative buttons or whatever. But those. Lmao!
Thanks Mike77 and Prince_Basil. Yes, I am definitely challenged but both procedure's work. I chose the latter and should have checked there first. Anyway, stand-by for more noobie questions, and thanks again.
What I do is disable that in the settings and also toggle full screen mode automatically. When I need any of the menus on the sides or need to navigate to another page, I just press the menu button on my phone and everything pops up.
I like having both of the side windows hidden and accessible through scroll... when I want to get around it and otherwise scroll through a page, I usually try a slight diagonal scroll workaround instead of just a standard left and right scroll... it's a tad counter-intuitive, but it works for me...
