Screenshot of complete Firefox window, showing tabcandy area and no chrome

(Ubuntu; Firefox 3.6.4 beta; tabcandy alpha)

The first time I enter tabcandy, I get a window showing only the tabcandy area, but with the menu bar, tool bars, and status bar hidden; see first attachment.  It's disorienting to lose the context like that.  I may be abusing terminology here, but it makes tabcandy feel more like a mode than a change in my locus of attention.

Oddly, if I make two tab groups (tabcandy-two-groups.png; will attach) and then close one of them, I get the tabcandy area, but with the surrounding bars back (tabcandy-post-close.png)  This is, I guess, how I'd prefer tab candy to look normally.  But closing a group shouldn't have anything to do with bringing this state of affairs about.

Screenshot showing both tabcandy display and tab list

This is another state I've been able to enter by closing tab groups in the tabcandy display; note that I have both the old-fashioned tabs display, and the tabcandy area.  Perhaps this is the same as the third screenshot, differing only in whether there were any tabs in the group that happens to be selected.

Aza, while this bug points out issues with our hiding/showing, I think the main thrust of it is the design point of whether to hide at all.
