[Project_owners] How to distinguish opened windows in browser overlay code?

Hi all,

I have a sidebar which I let set a preference to reflect it's state, that 
preference is globally shared between all open browser windows with the means 
of an observer, this way each opened window will disturb each other as not 
all opened windows will have an open sidebar, so one will set it open and 
another close.
So it's really unreliable to check it when more browser windows are open.
But as far as I know it's the only way for me to be able to check it's state 
from the overlay.

How could one make something similar but more reliable for multiple instances?
I want the overlay in a certain browser instance only to know the state of 
it's own sidebar, not the ones opened or closed in other browser instances.

Is there a way?
