Software makers usually fix these issues but it can take them some time. What you can do in the meantime is to download and install an older version of Bartender 5.0.44.

What's new in this version:

New Features:
Re-added the ability to automatically hide left menu when showing hidden menu bar items:
- I have updated this feature to work with changes in macOS Sonoma so have re-added this feature

Re-added the ability to leave menu bar items to the right of the Bartender menu bar item:
- This feature will keep any items to the right of the Bartender menu bar item always visible, even when Bartender swaps out your shown items for your hidden ones

Re-added the ability to always or never swap out shown items for hidden items:
- This was previously done automatically, only when there wasn't enough room to show your items unless swapped, now you can choose to keep it automatically, or never do this, or always do it

Compatibility with Bitwarden app:
- I have found a workaround to prevent BitWarden showing its UI when its menu bar item is moved

Compatibility with Sip app:
- I have found a workaround to prevent Sip showing its UI when its menu bar item is moved

Menu Bar Style adjustment:
- When you have menu bar style setup with separate sides and below menu bar rounding, it gives a black background between the two sides of the menu bar (great for hiding the notch). In previous versions this would leave a 1px strip of the desktop wallpaper visible above an windows positioned just below the menu bar, this has been fixed.

Menu Bar Style showing above Firefox and VPN fullscreen windows:
- Firefox and VPN can both use none native UI for there fullscreen, this was not detected by Bartender, so the menu bar style was applied above the fullscreen window. This has been fixed.

Typos and spellings:
- Thanks to the users reporting these, they have been fixed

Smaller bug fixes and improvements:
- As stated, fixed small issues I found as I worked through the other bug fixes
