I was trying to recreate what seems to trigger the problem at my end, and started describing step by step as below. What I seem to see now is that so far I can't recreate it on first attempt. Maybe something has been tweaked - hmmm. Anyway, I'll leave the below as is, in case I encounter the issue again in normal use and wish to revisit this post.

----------------------------------
I'm not zooming, but it seems to depend how large I have the browser window. Sometimes if I have say Firefox, Outlook and Excel open then I'll have the three windows sized and arranged around the screen so I can keep an eye on all three at once. That means I tend to reduce the window sizes to focus on what I need, rather than anything excess. This feels 'SOP' to me, but perhaps it's not :)
Example on this window/forum - on my (about) 68cm monitor. With this window at a random 52cm the tabs on the left are fine, not blocking anything.
If I reduce the width, at 50cm those tabs are just touching (not yet obstructing) the blue background of the text area.
Reduce width further, and a few of 'auto-resizes' trigger, still fine though.
At about 40cm the tabs move, flipping to the bottom of the window! Still not obstructing anything.


[etc.... see my para 1!]

I can see a couple of font auto-resizes happening too, as I decrease/increase the window size. What with the 5-tabs (left) flipping to the bottom, the lay-out seems to have gained ways of successfully adapting to the chosen window size.

So far so good!

Yup! That sounds right!

I have spent hours configuring the style so that it will not obstruct the text :)

It's no longer blocking the text for me.
Thanks.

The social media icons that appeared some time ago on the far left of the window, are a bit annoying and take up screen real estate.

Can you make them smaller? They are icons after all.....
