@MazdaFlyer Have you tried what I posted? Here is some information about that Safari bar on iPhone.



Where is the Safari menu bar on iPhone?


The safari menu bar is at the very top of your screen, up by the apple logo. Safari>Preferences>General. The home page preferences are midway down and you can manually enter the address you prefer, or if you are actively viewing the page you can click the "Set to current page" button.Apr 26, 2011






How do I open Safari preferences on my Iphone?


In the top right corner of your screen, there is an apple button. Directly to the right of that should be the bold word 'Safari'. Click that and many options will appear. The 3rd option down will be the preference option.Jul 1, 2010

2010, Really, IOS 14.7.1 2021 works a bit different. Not sure if anyone actually read the the posts in this thread.

The RRB desktop bookmark you posted doesn’t allow the navigation bar at bottom to show. If I go to the RRB site directly within Safari the navigation toolbar shows up.

When you use your desktop icon to open the forums, does it open them in Safari, or some other browser?

Have you tried deleting the desktop icon, and creating a new one (while viewing in Safari)?

Desktop button goes to Safari. Deleted the desktop button from RRB. Added a new Bookmark to home page from RRB on Safari. That seems to solve the problem, we‘ll see if it holds. I guess you get the accolades RustyGold…thanks!

I also found this which has a short video showing the bottom toolbar going away then reappearing with a touch.

It also states that
And thus began the month long saga of finding a solution to this problem. It turns out that the normal behavior of mobile Safari is to shrink the top address bar and hide the bottom navigation bar on scroll. When an approximately 44px high space on the bottom of the window is touched, the bottom navigation bar reappears.​
I shouldn’t laugh but I am laughing.

On my Microsoft desktop with Edge, if I have the browser maximized I can’t touch the volume control with a mouse.

Every time the desktop toolbar pops up. I end up using the buttons on the keyboard instead.

But if I lock the toolbar then I can, but I lose that extra screen real estate.
