This likely relates to the WebViews being inside a ViewPager, which is intercepting the left and right scrolling. It might be possible to override this in the NestedScrollWebView.

Several users have reported that they have difficulty zooming in and out because the ViewPager intercepts the zoom and wants to switch pages instead. I have not personally had that experience on any of my devices, but it may be a device specific problem. In any case, it is probably related to this problem and can probably be resolved by the same solution.

It seems to me that the best solution is to disable swiping in the ViewPager entirely (if that is possible), making the TabLayout the only way to move between tabs. This has the advantage of preserving all interactions inside the WebView relate to controlling the WebView, leaving all tab interactions to the TabLayout.
