How to prevent the header minimize when the user clicks on a webpart?

I understand this is not a RibbonVisibility problem, but I hope I can find a solution here.

When the Ribbon is not visible and the user clicks on a visual web part, the header gets minimized or hidden. Is there any way to avoid that?

 

Thanks in advance...

I have some further information on this, and am experiencing the same behaviour.

If using ribbonvisibility to hide the ribbon and a list item is clicked (even if it's in a non-hyperlinked section of the row), the ribbon will change to 'list tools' tab. If the ribbon is visible this isn't a problem, but when using this modification it replaces the entire header with a big blue bar or, if using the 'hide empty space' option, it will completely remove the header altogether. This is not a particularly functional way to have the site as it effectively removes navigation across the top, and drops out a big part of the look and feel of the site.

Is there any known way to modify the behaviour of clicking inside a list so that it will not trigger this change?
