This part hasn't changed in the new visual design, but duly noted. Note you can changed the fixed header in the settings as well as turn off the sidebar.

Going to throw my vote in here as well. I hate position:fixed and am constantly writing CSS hacks to remove these elements on pages. It's a trend I don't like, and yet it's becoming very common. I'm just a grumpy person that hates change, though.

I wonder if you could use media queries, to drop the fixed positioning if screen size is below a certain height.

We could do that in the JS as well. You think it is more important on mobile I'm assuming then?
