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.

Have you tried the suggestion in comment 4? 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...
