Attached patch Patch (obsolete) — Splinter Review
When opening a chat window with the minimized option set to true, we set chatbox.minimized = true here:

However, this happens before we insert the element to the DOM, so the minimized getter/setter from the binding is not triggered, and this ends up as a simple property assignment. Also, since the property is defined, the binding doesn't overwrite it, so the toggle() function that changes cb.minimized doesn't work in this case.

By setting it afterwards the problem is fixed, and also the isActive property of that chat gets properly set. Note though that the socialFrameHide event will also be dispatched, so there's a change in behavior with this patch (which could be avoided if done in a different manner, but that sounds like the right behavior, so I'll let others chime in)

Couldn't you just set the attribute instead? That way the panel opens as minimized, rather than opening normally and then being minimized.
Yeah, that's what I was thinking as the alternate approach. Do you think it's better that way? The only problem of not using the setter is getting it out of sync with this opening code if we add more things to setter later. But that is likely not a problem as whoever writes the code will search for "minimized" and find this in the same file.

approach suggested by gavin. Turns out setting isActive and dispatching socialFrameHide will happen anyways due to the DOMContentLoaded handler

Patch v2

Yeah, I think it's unlikely that we'll make the "minimized" setter any more complicated, and if we do we'll likely take this into account since it's hard to miss.

ok cool, i'm adding a test in a moment and another one might need to be changed

added a check for this in the existing chatwindow test. Other parts of the test did not need to be updated

Patch v2

[Approval Request Comment]
Bug caused by (feature/regressing bug #): new feature, part of Social API
User impact if declined: chats automatically opened by the worker will open full size and can't be minimized
Testing completed (on m-c, etc.): landed on m-c
Risk to taking this patch (and alternatives if risky): very small on Firefox's side, but the provider needs to fix an issue that their chat layout is broken when open as minimized.
(If we do not take this patch we should take at least an alternate patch on the branches that allows chats to still be opened as full size but fix the fact that they can't be minimized)
