Hello andy fev

I think this is a form of security not to protect the site when it is being edited.

If you want to do another activity when you are editing, open the control panel in another tab.

No I just want to move about without the need to close the area of editing first. However I found a simple plugin called 'admin bar unlocker' that does the task very well.
