I normally use the site in Firefox on smartphone with "request desktop site" feature of the browser.

The right side-bar which includes meta links, watched/ignored tags and hot network questions no longer appears on right side but is put after list of questions. Very annoying.

I guess this is primarily because of responsive design and I am not sure if something can be done to fix it.

On the plus side I love writing in the edit box (like this answer) while holding my phone in portrait mode (as the responsive design resizes the edit box properly).

Update: I finally did some experiment on desktop and found that if one reduces the widow width beyond a certain point then the right sidebar goes to the bottom. Reducing further width of window moves the left side also to a menu button on top left (in the black bar). So this is their responsive design in action.

The same behavior can be seen if one starts increasing font size (ctrl+) gradually. This is exactly what happens on a smartphone as you have large fonts on 5.5 inch 1080p display. Similar behavior should be seen by default on tab (iPad) in portrait mode although I have not checked it.

I think the way they move the left sidebar automatically into a menu button, there should be a way to move the content in the right sidebar into some menu button at the top.
