    Please, please PLEASE can someone please tell me how to disable the Safari sidebar automatically popping up when in full screen. The amount of times I have searched for a solution and find nothing but false info.

    It's been annoying me for years!

    So if you move your mouse to the left of the screen the sidebar doesn't pop out automatically?

    Happens to me too, apparently it’s a standard feature that can only be disable with some kind of terminal command? Or by moving the dock to the left of the screen.

    I had seen the thing about the dock on the left, which is weird for me lol. Tried several terminal commands which never seems to work. Surely it can be disabled

    No. The only way I get the Sidebar is by clicking on the button on the Toolbar.
    Safari 12.0.1 and Sierra.
