can the "return to top" button be a popup instead of always there?

First of all, let me say that I love ATS. The layout is great and I applaud the developers and anyone that contributed to the site.

I spend most of my time here using my mobile phone. There's just one small thing starting to annoy me and that is the return to top button.

To be clear, I think it's great and I use it quite a bit. The problem is that I'm right handed and generally use my right thumb to scroll down through the page as I'm reading. I don't know how many times I've been reading a particularly engaging discussion when my thumb brushes the return to top button. Suddenly, everything goes flying by and I'm at the top of the page. Then I have to scroll, scroll, scroll back down to find where I was at.

So, here's my question: can the return to top button be hidden while I'm scrolling down the page and appear when I start to scrolll back up?

I'm not a web developer or coder of any sort and don't know if this is possible. If it can be done, it would go a long ways toward keeping my phone in one functioning piece.

Thank you

the bottom right corner is a pain, could it be placed at the left side, it would be less painful. I'm also right handed android user/3inch screen. all of the clickable features should be placed on the left side of the screen

On my phone I ask for a desktop version of the page - ATS's phone version of the page is a bit rubbish.

For sure - I never use the mobile version, it's unusable.
