Out of bounds horizontal scrolling in Discourse

When viewing this Help Forum in iOS on mobile, there is out of bounds horizontal scrolling happening. The contents of the top menu and header are pushing some of the elements past the right margin, which causes the whole viewport to scroll horizontally when it shouldn’t be.

If the “Help Contents” and help email address were removed from the header and placed in the hamburger menu — or accessible within the body — I’d think that would fix this bug.

Edit: here’s a video to show what’s happening.

Oops. Not sure how much control we have over that, but I’ll look into it. I’ve also disabled the chat button since Micro Camp is over, so that’ll give a tiny bit more space.
