Windows can be opened with with properties that remove parts of the toolbar like toolbar=no.

In OS X you can hide the toolbar by pressing the hide toolbars button at the top-right of the window.  You can show the toolbar again by pressing the button again, but Firefox will show the entire toolbar + bookmarks bar instead of just preserving the way the toolbar looked before it was hidden.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click on a link that opens a new window that removes portions of the window toolbar
2. click the hide/show toolbar button to hide the toolbar
3. click the hide/show toolbar button again to show the toolbar
Actual Results:  
The complete toolbar appears

Expected Results:  
The toolbar appears as it was before it was hidden

Depending on how you look at it, this actually could be considered a feature.

This still exists in 3.6.10 and 3.6 nightly builds.  It does not exist in 4.0 nightly builds because the hide/show toolbar button was removed.
