Automatically cleans pages of the sticky headers and other fixed elements
Many websites have sticky headers, social buttons and other widgets which remain in view as you scroll. Most of the time they are useless and simply occupy the screen space. Sticky Ducky automatically cleans the page of those sticky elements. It has settings for displaying them again on demand and a whitelist.

- (2022-09-29) James Utting: I have used for a while and on many websites the Sticky Ducky Heuristics allow far too much annoying garbage to pollute webpages and it is NOT very effective at all. Perhaps the developer could possibly introduce a Strict/Aggressive mode which could be activated manually on websites where more filtering is required. PopUpOff is far superior to Sticky Ducky and has 3 different default modes of usage, Dormant, Moderate and Aggressive. You can also configure it to use a particular mode of operation for each individual website.

- (2019-06-18) Faheem Pervez: As someone with limited screen space, this extension works great for saving space by hiding annoying headers (until you *actually* need them). Granted, my sample size isn't high, but this doesn't appear to break sites' functionality either. Many thanks to the developer.

Hi, When I use facebook this extension fails to remove a horizontal bar which first appears at the top of the webpage and is used for search and provides other information about the posters page. This horizontal bar follows you down screen as you scroll and obscuring parts of the webpage. I would prefer to have that useful horizontal bar remain at the top of screen and not follow me down the page as I scroll. I have tried all the various Sticky Ducky settings and it completely fails to block this very annoying horizontal bar.

Hi Boris! Thanks for your extension and continued maintenance. We appreciate you.
- (2018-09-04, v:1.1) Aaron Thoma: you could make “When to show sticky elements:” multi-selectable
so that stickies can be displayed e.g. both when hovering OR at the top of the page
- (2018-09-04, v:1.1) Aaron Thoma: please support defining exceptions
e.g. for Facebook
