[Affected versions]:
- 45.0.2 build1 (20160407164938)
- 46.0 build5 (20160421124000)
- 47.0b1 (20160425205003)
- 48.0a2 (2016-04-28)
- 49.0a1 (2016-04-28)

[Affected platforms]:
- Windows 7 64-bit
- Windows 10 x64
- Mac OS X 10.9.5
- Ubuntu 12.04 x32

[Steps to reproduce]:
1. Launch Firefox with a new profile 
2. Go to View menu > Sidebar > Bookmarks 
3. Go to Hamburger Menu > New Private Window 
    - inspect if any sidebar is opened
    - close the new opened private window
4. Go to Hamburger Menu > New Window
    - inspect if any sidebar is opened
    - close the new opened window
5. Go to Hamburger Menu > New Private Window 
    - inspect if any sidebar is opened
    - close the new opened private window
6. Close the Bookmarks sidebar from the main window
7. Go to Hamburger Menu > New Private Window 
    - inspect if any sidebar is opened
    - close the new opened private window
8. Go to View menu > Sidebar > History
9. Go to Hamburger Menu > New Private Window 
    - inspect if any sidebar is opened

[Expected result]:
- The right sidebar is properly opened  regardless of the window type and the moment it was opened: main window (step 2, step 8), new window (step 4), new private window (step 3, step 5, step 9).
- No sidebar is opened: in the main window (step 6), in the private window (step 7).

[Actual result]:
- The right sidebar is properly opened in the main window (step 2, step 8) and in the new window (step 4)
- No sidebar is opened in the main window (step 6)
- The private window displays:
    - no sidebar (step 3)
    - the right sidebar (Bookmarks) (step 5)
    - the content of the already closed sidebar (Bookmarks) with no sidebar title (step 7)
    - the wrong sidebar content (Bookmarks - already closed) with the right sidebar title (History) (step 9)

[Regression range]:
- I am not sure if this is a regression, I will check as soon as possible.

[Additional notes]:
- The same issue happens for the Sync Tabs Sidebar, too.

Regression from 25.  evold do you want to take a look here? Or can you suggest someone to investigate? 
Since this issue is fairly minor and has been around for years we don't need to track though it would be nice to fix.

There are many people using Sidebar, and therefore Photon makes it easier to use Sidebar in Firefox 55 by adding the Show Sidebar button to the toolbar. Time to fix it?
I meant Firefox 57.
