User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1b3pre) Gecko/20081218 Shiretoko/3.1b3pre Build Identifier: The menu bar throbber should be automatically shown when "Always show the tab bar" is unchecked, or perhaps only when the tab bar isn't shown. Reproducible: Always
To me, it doesn's happens always, it only happens a few times but very usually. Well, i do not understand english so nice to know everything written in the original description, but i think that it is the same problem that i have: Sometimes, when i open another window or i go to the desktop, the Firefox "icon" doesn't shows at the menu bar. Thank you!
Nicolás: That sounds like a different issue.
I found an easy fix: Go to "View" --> "Toolbars" --> "Customize..." You should see an "Activity Indicator". Drag it to where you want it to be (typically the upper right corner, right below the Windows "X" button).
iworms: This bug is about that being done automatically.
On the latest nightly this is still an issue. As a user who frequently only has on tab open I disable "always show the tab bar" as it eats up screen real estate. Thus I have no idea if a page is loading or not without some sort of throbber or other indication.

Also, there is a bug filed to make that toolbar throbber match the tab throbber (bug 603659). Also, have you seen bug 603594? I think that may be a dupe of this bug...
