Steps to reproduce:

1. Cutomize the Mail Toolbar
2. Remove all the items on the Mail Toolbar
3. When the last item is removed, the Mail Toolbar placeholder disappears

Actual results:

The Mail Toolbar disappears when there are no items. (incorrect)

The Folder Pane Toolbar shows when there are no items. (correct)

Expected results:

When there are no items in the Mail Toolbar, and the Mail Toolbar is active, the Mail Toolbar should show.

The Folder Pane Toolbar still shows when there are no items.

Linux is the only platform which has no min-height in toolbars.css. This patch adds it to messenger.css.

Will this patch apply to all toolbars, i.e. in add-ons, too?

Thank you
When they use messenger.css, yes.

Thanks, the toolbar suddenly going missing (zero height) looks weird to the user.
