I don’t want the bookmark bar to show on new tabs or on startup. However the presence of the bookmark bar doesn’t track with the state displayed in the Bookmark settings menu.
- On a new tab, the bookmark bar is always displayed. (Settings / Appearance / Show Bookmarks is off.)
- Neither Ctrl-Shift-B nor Show Settings option in the Bookmarks menu have any effect in a new tab.
- Both methods DO affect a window displaying web content.

I suspect this is an architecture issue. There probably needs to be flags for: current session, new session default, and perhaps each tab (for all likely use cases). Without this, each update to for a particular use case is likely to break another, causing a repeating stream of complaints. (Looking at the history, this appears to be happening.)
Alternatively, the bookmark display logic honors the bookmark display flag only when loading content.
