so webview works fine and does not mix in with the status bar in any way, its only until I try to upload an image from the gallery that it pushes the app into the status bar (see order of picture for an example)

i have added this.statusBar.overlaysWebView(false) and tried <preference name="StatusBarOverlaysWebView" value="false" /> but it breaks as soon as the photo selection takes place

also rotating the device brings it back to normal
