Details

STR (must be in Europe/use a VPN to Europe):

  1. Be in Europe or behind a European VPN
  2. Set Tracking Protection to 'strict' at about:preferences#privacy
  3. Visit https://www.si.com/sports-illustrated/2022/05/24/pickleball-fastest-growing-sport-daily-cover
  4. Dismiss the cookie-consent banner.
  5. Scroll down (e.g. hit page-down 5-6 times)

ACTUAL RESULTS:
There's a floating gray bar, fixed in place on the screen, which is initially just before the article's title, but it stays in place as I scroll and covers up article content.

EXPECTED RESULTS:
Gray bar should disappear after I scroll down.

Note that a fix for the same issue landed in bug 1771557, but only fixed the issue in North America (and presumably other non-European regions, where the cookie consent banner does not appear).
