User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.12; rv:59.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/59.0
Build ID: 20180323154952

Steps to reproduce:

I tried to read a Twitter thread.


Actual results:

I couldn't read it. I couldn't scroll the whole page, to scroll without pain. I was only able to scroll the middle, with sheering pain on each side due to the fixed background.

I tried to switch to Reader View. I couldn't. I then blocked fixed elements, using an add-on, but it blanked the whole page.


Expected results:

... There ought to be some way to force reader view on Twitter, or fix scrolling on Twitter, or defeat fixed elements and fix scrolling everywhere.

Bug 1164426 says this is intentional.

You may be able to use userContent.css [1] to set elements to position:static [2] which should unsticky them and let them scroll normally. If you don't know CSS, either StackOverflow [3] or Mozilla Support [4] should be able to help you.
