We are planning on doing a pref-flip roll-out for QuantumBar on nightly.

Whilst we know that changing the pref & restarting works fine, we need to be able to cope with a pref flip happening at almost any time - e.g. do we still work fine if a new window is opened after the pref flip?

We might need to check how @supports -moz-bool-pref("browser.urlbar.quantumbar") with respect the other places that we check the QuantumBar pref.

I'll start investigating this

So, this is not trivial because of bindings, most of the times something is broken (like opening a new window after flipping the pref), I have a patch that works, but it's not the nicest.
Anyway it's worth starting the discussion/investigation, so I'll attach it and we'll go from there.
