Works For Me. STRs unclear
Jason, Aravidnm: are you still getting this?
I can confirm the problem on the latest Minefield and Win 7. What you should be looking for is where the tab appears in relation to the Firefox/Minefield button. In a normal start, tabs will appear on the same horizontal line (more or less) as the Firefox button, but if you follow the steps in comment #0, the tabs will appear below this line. So you end up having some extra space between tabs and title bar.

Restarting the browser will bring it back to normal.

Clearer STR  
1. Enter Panorama View from Normal Firefox browsing
2. Press F11 in Panorama View to enter full screen
3. Press One tab in any of your Panorama group
4. you will realise that it is still full screen in the tab that you have focused on. 
5. exit the full screen mode by pressing F11
6. you will realise that the tabs are no longer in the titlebar.

Attached patch patch v1Splinter Review
The problem is: when switching to non-fullscreen-mode after returning from panorama the "sizemode" critieria for TabsInTitleBar.allowedBy() does not change its value and therefore doesn't fire TabsInTitleBar._update().

I implemented another "fullscreen" criteria that is handled in Fullscreen.toggle()

Another possibility would have been to change to:

TabsInTitlebar.allowedBy("sizemode", sizemode == "maximized");

and to:

if (!this._initialized)

Unfortunately this seems to fire too early so gNavToolbox's margin-bottom is not calculated correctly.

[bugspam: betaN -> final]

Should get fixed by patch for bug 626976, which has been set to final. So it's totally up to that bug's fate. If we punt on that one, we punt on this too, though.

Panorama has been removed from Firefox 45, currently in Beta and scheduled for release on March 7th. As such, I'm closing all existing Panorama bugs.

If you are still using Panorama, you will see a deprecation message in Firefox 44, and when 45 is released your tab group data will be migrated to bookmarks, with a folder for each group. There are also a few addons offering similar functionality.

See for more info.

We're removing Panorama because it has extremely low usage (about 0.01% of users), and has a large number of bugs and usability issues. The cost of fixing all those issues is far too high to justify, and so we'll instead be focusing our time and energy on improving other parts of Firefox.
