STR:
* Enable the social demo provider.

Actual:
* I see 2 panels which overlap and thus can't be read - 1 is the notification of the provider being activated, the other is (presumably - I can't read it) a request for geo-location permissions.

* The second panel is cropped and can't be read.  Note that the panel was briefly readable - it looks like it appeared before the providers icon.  However, the provider icons were immediately added, which pushed the panel off-screen.

* It looks like there are multiple geo-location buttons - the 2 buttons on the right appear identical.

See attachment.
just some info.

That is the demo sidebar requesting permission immediately upon first load when it is installed.

The first set with the vertical separator is the social toolbaritem with the notification button and the menu for the sidebar.  The second button at the far right is the status button.  The demo provider doesn't use different icons for the two, but ideally any provider would.
This is an edge case that is going away due to changes from bug 935640 ("undo panel" which is part of this problem has been removed).
