It is confusing when a filter is applied to a search even though the filter configuration is not visible on screen: the user may receive less results than expected, for no apparent reason. See https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/aedict-users/DGqndqydoto for more information.

The current filter configuration should be displayed in the "query" part of the screen (right above the results); but I guess it's not immediately obvious what that means.

I'm thinking to not to apply any filtering when the filter bar is hidden. What do you guys think?

Absolutely! Or alternatively when returning results (or saying there are no results) include an alert that there are active filters.

Currently there is a small info box that lists all enabled filters. For example:
screenshot_20171129-151318
(Please note the [common only] text). But perhaps I should also include something like "with filters enabled: [common only]" and perhaps include the filter icon? Or would you still prefer filters to be disabled when they're invisible?

I like the idea of having the stickiness configurable, I'll implement it that way. I'll however keep the default value of true so that the current functionality is preserved.
