Here is a screenshot from Stackoverflow Team page, with the floating sidebar: (all good so far)

Stackoverflow Team

After I scroll down to footer it just combines both:

Can it please be fixed?

    I don't see a problem, unless I am unwilling to replicate. Can you explain what you mean but "it just combine both"? Commented Mar 8, 2016 at 6:05

    Looking at the bottom, the white portion of the page has merged into the black footer of the page. I'ts more noticable if you look just to the left of the black part and at the words

    I'm seeing the same thing. Basically, the sidebar with the job categories stays static and still stays on the screen even when the only visible part is the footer

  • just scroll down to end. Side bar "community", "customer Support" combined(Merged) with the website footer (Technology). Commented Mar 8, 2016 at 6:08
  • I think they may be referring to how the left hand panel text can be seen through or along with the headings in the black bottom panel. If they did a screenshot of just that part of the browser window it would be obvious.

    Yeah, the left-side nav bleeds into the footer when you scroll all the way down. Reproduced in Chrome (latest).

  • @Carpetsmoker well, since Stack Overflow is now Stack Exchange (the company) this fits both meta sites Commented Mar 8, 2016 at 7:23
  • While it's not the same page, this is scarily similar to the design bug that was 'status-declined'. I guess the only solution is to give background color Commented Mar 8, 2016 at 7:41

    @SID He wasn't really giving an opinion of what he thinks should happen, but state what is likely to happen. It's very likely, based on past reports, that this bug will get "fixed" by simply adding a white background on that menu so the items don't blend into the footer behind it, and it overlapping on the footer will be by-design, as we've been unwilling to implement a change to make sidebar items stop at the footer in the past.
