When launching browser for first time or launching a new window, sidebar panel
is empty (have 7 sidebar panels checked to display).  Need to open and close
sidebar panel to display my 7 sidebar panels that I have checked.  Using 7/18
build 1.0.1

We should make sure this is not an isolated incident, but this appears to be
pretty serious.

sujay/samir: is this something that you can reproduce?

Those other bugs are hard to follow...fixed and then reopened etc.  My guy here
is using Windows 2000 and the latest 7/23 build. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U;
Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020723 Netscape/7.0 

Also he converted his profile from 4.x

Did you use non-released builds with this profile?  Can you also post you
localstore.rdf from your profile?  Thanks.

local store rdf

here you go...the profile was converted from 4.x using a more recent build then
7.0 pr1 but don't know which one exactly, probably a build in early July

I can see the empty sidebar if I drop the attached localstore.rdf file in my
profile directory (migrated 4.x on 7/23) 
I launch with both browser and mail and my mail panel is ok.  How about user?
I also can press F9 twice and restore the panel. 

Rafael, anything the user might be doing before shutting down that he/she can
remember?  Also- was the profile migrated after the install on 7/18 or so or was
it used on a previous install?  Are you folks installing daily?

We had problems with interim builds that manifested in exactly the symptoms
mentioned here.  Can this be reproduced with a new profile or with a profile
created and used only with released builds (even the 7.0 PR1 build)?  If so, we
can pay some attention to this bug else I'm afraid this would not be a high
priority since it would only affect folks who were testing.  Let me know.  Thanks.

I can reproduce this reliably today
Run Mozilla with new profile, run tests, close
Run MachV (branch build of 7/30) using same profile and sidebar panel is
empty/grayed out

The reverse is not true- run machv first followed my mozilla and sidebar is ok
also happens with migrated profile.
