Edit -> Preferences -> Navigator -> Tabbed Browsing -> Tab Display
[x] Hide the tab bar when only one tab is open
This disables the View -> Show/Hide -> Tab Bar menuitem by design.

you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
