look in the 'dev tools' console, if you have a warning about 'tracking cookies'.
sometimes when 'lock tracking cookies' is 'ON' , elements can not display as usual..

by your code, you are going 'global' with your settings, the html and body tags are the 'whole tags'.
all your html are in them, so the css settings apply for all elements of your page.

make it with another selectors, more reliable with the aim required.

What does "not behaving as expected" mean? You haven't provided any HTML code or the corresponding CSS, nor have you explained what's happening. Please use the Improve question button and add more details.

Hidden overflow has always caused problems with sticky positioning:
[css3 positioning] support position:sticky inside an overflow:hidden|auto on general parents · Issue #865 · w3c/csswg-drafts · GitHub[^]

In particular, setting overflow-x:hidden on multiple ancestors of the sticky element seems to break it:
css - Position sticky not working with body{ overflow-x: hidden; } - Stack Overflow[^]

Try only setting this property on the body element, not the html element:
@media only screen and (max-width: 768px) {
html, body {
  width: 100dvw; /* */
body {
  overflow-x: hidden;
