Description Aidin NasiriShargh 2021-12-13 11:15:27 PST
window.screenY (https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/Window/screenY) is supposed to return the vertical distance, in CSS pixels, of the top border of the user's browser viewport to the top edge of the screen.

On mobile devices (Chrome 96 on Android and iOS + Safari on iOS) it always returns 0.  Firefox (Gecko) on Android, however, returns a non-zero value (53 in my case) which is properly the height of the addressbar and other things between the top of the window and top of the screen.

PS. I can get this by subtracting event.clientY and event.screenY on touch/click events.  But I want it on non-event contexts as well.
