For the new responsive layout, we need the backend sidebar with the menu sticky scrollable. For niceness

It seems adding the supported position: sticky results in sidebar height problems. That is, the blue background of the sidebar does not extend fully on not very high viewports (when testing the sticky). So the sticky bit works but because of the overflowing submenus on the main menu on not very high viewports the overflowing forces extra whitespace after the sidebar which does not extend because we are positioning sticky...

I advise not to use the position sticky for now. Also the result was a bit weird. It did position sticky itself and upon scrolling everything worked as should be, but it felt kind of strange. I can imagine this feeling extra strange for users on a backend with a very long (high) main menu in the sidebar.
