Fixing a Barlesque annoyance Rated 5 out of 5 stars
@Rui: There's a fix for the "doesn't stay collapsed" issue you complain about.
Download a local copy of the XPI and open it up. Edit the file Chrome/Content/overlay.js. Comment out or delete lines 566-570. Barlesque is not staying collapsed because it's responding to notifications, and the code that makes it do that is that block of lines.
Save the file back into the XPI, then install from the local copy.
