The width of the social sidebar is not being saved when the user exits FireFox. I would expect on reload the sidebar to have the same size it did when I exiting. 

If you open/close the sidebar, or enable/disable the provider, without exiting Firefox it does retain its size.

Adds persist="width" to the social-sidebar-box.

Verified on Firefox 17 beta 5 that - the sidebar width is the same when the user exits Firefox willingly (File menu -> Exit/"x button" or restart) or unexpectedly (by killing Firefox or after a crash).

Verified that the sidebar width is the same after exiting/opening Firefox on Windows 7, Ubuntu 12.04 and Mac OS X 10.8:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:17.0) Gecko/17.0 Firefox/17.0

Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.8; rv:17.0) Gecko/17.0 Firefox/17.0
Verified as fixed on Firefox 18 beta 1 - the sidebar width is saved at shutdown.

Verified on Windows 8, Ubuntu 12.04 and Mac OS X 10.7:
