possible state leakage in Tor Browser

In Tails 1.2.1 (the current latest), when I run Tor Browser for the first time the menu bar is hidden.

Its visibility toggles irritatingly with the alt key. So, I always set it to remain visible by right-clicking in the empty space in the tab bar to the right of the current tab and checking the "Menu Bar" option in the contextual menu.

When I quit and relaunch Tor Browser, this setting remains, even though all other browser state I have discerned is reset.

I am filing this bug so that someone more knowledgeable can consider and investigate the possibility that this presumably-harmless state persisting is not an indicator of some larger state leaking problem in Tor Browser.

It seems there is nothing suspicious in saving that state, except changing window size.
