Nightly 20.0a2 2012-01-10 Device: Samsung Galaxy R OS: Android 2.3.4 Steps to reproduce: 1. Open Firefox for Android with a clean profile( No sync session was set-up before) 2. Open tab menu. 3. Select "Synced" section. Expected results: Selecting Synced section should keep the tab menu opened because the user might want to initiate another operation in tab menu section. Also selecting the "Private" option doesn’t close the tab menu if it's empty. Actual results: Selecting Synced section closes the tab menu.
Actually, if the Synced section is empty, the tab should never appear.
