Sidebar shows up every time I load a page

That is because the settings are now stored in the database not in the cookie that is stored on your computer.

If you are not logged in it does not know what your settings are.
Storing settings in the database works for all but the first time we return to SG. Thereafter, it works. I don't really understand what is happening. But I speculate that "the database" purges itself once you go away and return. Once you toggle it off again, it stays that way until next time.
I am logged in, I never log out. Each time I leave the website and then return I have to toggle off.
Same here.

Unfortunately I don’t have an answer nor does Xenforo.

I can return it to the old way but then the hiding the sidebar no longer works.

They say it’s due to one of our addons. But with over (from memory) 80 of them it’s hard to say which one is it.
