I've sent Kobo an email about this, with the (rather obvious) suggestion that the footnote hotspot should be prioritized over the page turn bar. So far no response. Another solution could be I guess to have a settings option to require a swipe for a page turn, or a double tap.
Are you using a small font? Links in epubs work for me so long as the link is big enough to tap. But, as I use a small font, the single superscript number used for a not is usually to small for my large fingers to select. Sometimes it work if I use a pointer. But, generally, I have to increase the font size.
