The site navigation bar should appear if any of the tabs in a window need it
rather than just if the current tab needs it when set to "Show only as needed".
Otherwise the tab bar jumps up and down, moving it out from under the mouse,
when clicking between tabs.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Set site navigation bar to "Show only as needed"
2.Open two tabs, one onto a site that uses the navigatiom bar  and one that doesn't
3.Click on one tab, then the other.
Actual Results:  
The tab bar moved out from under the mouse when changing tabs

Expected Results:  
Show the site navigation bar with everything greyed out if the current tab
doesn't need it but one of the other tabs in the window does.

Bug 102990 looks like a nice(r) solution, but also might be harder/longer to

However, given the apparent lack of interest in this bug and the fact that it's
easily solved on a per window basis by setting "show always" - I suggest anyone
interested sign on to bug 102990 and close this one as wontfix. What do you say
