If this is a regression, this should be nom'd to block beta
tracking-fennec: --- → ?
Looks to be a theme issue. On my 2.2 device I don't see the problem. On 2.3 I do see the issue.
Toggling the checkbox brings the UI back.
* Not a theme bug. Kevin saw it on 2.2 and 2.3 in an IRC discussion
* Doesn't happen all the imte. Kevin was not able to reproduce the bug at one point
* Toggling checkbox "fixes" it

So, I think we need to find out why the state is wrong when setting the row visibility. And we need the "Enable Sync" anyway.

This doesn't hurt beta enough to make a large effort to fix it there, but we will track for 8.

After step 7, Connect button and Sync status are missing.
After step 10, Sync is not connected. If steps 9&10 are performed again, there will be the same actual result.

matt, is this something we need for 8?  can you take a look at see what is involved?

Attached patch patchSplinter Review
This happens when you open the preference panel before the first pageload finishes (so the UIReadyDelayed event hasn't fired yet).  This patch adds an extra call to WeaveGlue.init so we will call it after the first pageload finishes *or* when the pref panel opens, whichever comes first.
