After playing with this some more, it appears if tabs are displayed, there is a throbber on the tab instead of the navigation toolbar. However, I generally don't use tabs at all and don't like wasting the space to show a single tab, so I have them turned off. On previous versions of Firefox, the throbber was always visible in the navigation toolbar even when tabs were not in use. Hopefully there's a fix for this as I really don't like tabs...
