User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; WOW64; rv:38.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/38.0
Build ID: 20150118030202

Steps to reproduce:

- Make 2 tab groups
- Put a few tabs in each group
- Close FF
- Open FF (tab groups will be restored, one tab group will load instantly)
- Minimize FF
- Hover over taskbar FF icon


Actual results:

FF will show previews of all the tabs, but the ones in the hidden tab group will only show "loading circles" and hovering over the respective preview shows a garbled window.


Expected results:

Depends. There are a few conceivable options:
- Hide previews of the hidden tabs
- Show the previews, but load the tabs and fix the display
- Implement a function to switch tab groups in the taskbar preview (could be through a particular icon or something) and then show the other tab group when clicked
