Summary

"Fixed elements" (or "sticky" elements) are parts of a web page which stay "fixed" in one place in the window. They're often used to create bars at the top or bottom of the window, making less of the page content visible.

This extension adds a button in your browser toolbar you can click to temporarily hide all fixed elements on the page, freeing up more room in the window for you to read the content of the page. (The button is a toggle -- click it again to make those elements show up.)

User reviews
Love this extension. I use it all the time, when it cleans up for sites that I have to disable AdBlock. Would love to have a configurable hotkey.

Excellent! Dev, Andrew: pls add a gitlab/hub/etc link so I can send patches to have this work on mobile firefox! thank you!
