#17 Sidebar Panels ... wtf?

I would post this in the firebird forum, but they are down for now (yes I donated just now!)

My question is, wtf is with the new sidebar panels in firebird? There is no option to close the panel. So now I have a bookmark that opens itself in the sidebar, and once you've opened it, there is no way to close that thing down. You have to load one of the three stock sidebars, then go back to the menu, and turn that sidebar off again...

Please fix this ASAP, I love my sidebars in mozilla and have been missing them in firebird!!

Also, why don't the sidebars that have been added show up in the View... Sidebar menu? The only way to access them is through the bookmark. I hope this can be changed also.
