Sticky header when scrolling down long Trac tickets

I'm not the world's biggest fan of sticky headers, but when used carefully they can provide real value.

After scrolling down through the comments of a long ticket and then getting distracted by something else and coming back to it, it's common to need to scroll back to the top to remind yourself which ticket you're reading.

A small sticky header that contains the ticket number, summary, and status would be useful. Potentially just the top of the main ticket info box:

Change History (1)

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

I'm not sure the downsides of a sticky header are outweighed by the benefits here. I understand how long ticket threads can be confusing like that, but we'd be impeding ticket views on all regular sized and short tickets as well.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
