Firefox Android - URL/Toolbar unhides while scrolling

I'm using Firefox version 89.1.1 for Android. I don't know when the problem started, but it was not always this way.

I have the setting "scroll to hide toolbar" enabled. The issue is that when I'm scrolling with some momentum (such that the page keeps scrolling when I lift my finger) - the URL bar will instantly pop back onto the screen when I put my finger back on the screen to stop scrolling.

This is an issue because the whole page moves down as the URL bar opens. The result is that instead of fluid scrolling that matches my swiping, the page is basically shaking and jumping and it's very uncomfortable.

The expected behaviour is that the URL bar remains hidden until I swipe the page down to reveal it.

Please let me know if this is a known issue and if solutions exist! Thank you!

(PS I have a screen capture but can't seem to upload it. If it would be useful I'll try again)

I am using the latest Nightly version where the toolbar hides if you scroll down the page, and carefully reappears if you scroll up.

This behaviour will land in the version of Firefox for Android that you have very soon.

What's the Nightly version?

The Nightly version is a version two version numbers before the final Release copy. It is an early test build designed to help finalise features and test for bugs.

It does allow you to see new features early, but can have unexpected unresolved issues.
