On MSE a similar problem exists with the "How to Format" toolbar, though it appears the transparency is different for the background:

It seems this should not do this at all as it's pretty ugly appearance wise. And rather Clippy like, to be honest.

  • If that's intended behavior it would be good for network wide transparency settings to avoid the... hideous look that SESE has.

    You should post the SESE one on the meta there because that's a site-specific design issue; the sidebar covers the footer everywhere else from what I can see (i.e. the handful I just checked).. but sure I agree with you
