If you haven't opened a solution yet, and the status bar hasn't been created, the "show it by the feedback button" logic is broken.
Comment 2 Lluis Sanchez 2013-03-11 12:18:20 UTC
Fixed, although the feedback button has been removed for now.
Comment 3 Saurabh 2013-03-26 09:04:04 UTC
Today we have checked this issues with following builds:


We are getting Send feedback option under Help. But after clicking on it, nothing happens. 

I think Send feedback option should also removed from Help.

Please let us know it is correct or not.
