    Hi all.

    I mostly use the Samsung Internet app as my browser. The navigation bar at the bottom dissapears when you scroll down the page and usually reappears when you scroll back up again. However, sometimes it doesnt reappear until you scroll all the way back up to the top of the page. This generally happens when the page your on is quite long. Sometimes it can be a little annoying when your on long pages and have to scroll up all the way to the top to get the navigation bar back on screen.

    I had a look through the settings but didn't see any option to make the bar stay there permanently so I assume it's not possible. I thought I'd double check with you all before giving up.

    Many thanks in advance.

    No, you're correct, it's not possible as far as I know.

    By navigation bar, do you mean the bar with the bookmarks and tabs and back and forward buttons or the actual Android navigation bar?

    I use Samsung interent as my main browser and if like you say you're browsering a long page I get a little arrow at the botton of the screen near where the navigation bar is which if you hit takes you like a home button on a PC to the top of the page.

    If you don't have that arrow maybe you should go to Galaxy apps and see if you can get a newer browser.

    Hiya. Yes the bar at the bottom of the Samsung browser itself.

    Hi @Velenoso.

    I must say I've never noticed an arrow. I'll double check if Samsung browser is up to date.

    Thanks.

    Samsung browser is up to date. Or at least it says it is.

    Okay. No I don't think you can change that behavior. I'd expect it one of the things done to keep static images from staying on one spot from too long on the screen (that causes burn in).

    Yeah I know what you mean. However I wouldn't have thought any burn in would happen before the screen automatically switches off.

    I'm being thick aren't I? There is the slider on the right hand side which only becomes visible whilst your scrolling up or down. The little grey transparent bit with the white up and down arrow on it. If you hold your finger on it you can scroll the page super quick.

    Sorry about that and thanks for posting.

    The arrow is the one in the middle of the page.

    OMG!! Yes I just noticed the arrow you mean in a circle. It's obviously been staring me in the face all this time. But when the navigation bar isn't there neither is the arrow in the circle. Some times I have to scroll all the way up to the top of the page before the bar comes back on screen.

    But anyway as I just posted I can use the little slider (grey with white up and down arrows on it) on the right side.

    Please ignore me. I'm totally talking rubbish. The arrow is always there. Talk about missing the obvious. Sorry for the confusion
