This add-on hides the Ads panel in the right side of NEW (Oct. 2013) Yahoo! Mail’s Basic version, to give you a full-width Premium mail reading experience for free!

However, there comes a time (every so often) when I need to get it back. Rather than un-hiding it, getting what I need, then hiding it again – I have found a much quicker way to bring the menu bar back for just a minute.
