When clicking "Get mail" and choosing from the dropdown one of my POP mail accounts messages are downloaded properly, then the connection is closed:
[21:58:01] POP> QUIT
[21:58:01] POP< +OK abv POP3 Server signing off.
but the progress bar on bottom right still remains.
When checking IMAP account this doesn't happen, only with POP.
What does your screenshot indicate, that it's a darker grey?
It shows the empty progress bar which remains.

expected (no progress bar)
This is how it should be (and how it is with IMAP check)
Does this happen every time you get mail from this POP account?
Yes. Same for other POP accounts too.
FWIW, I use POP and never encounter the problem; one apparent difference is that the POP account is the only one I have configured.
AFAICS, it can be reproduced only if your POP account is configured to leave messages on server.
(In reply to comment #7)
I do leave messages on the server, it's my way of getting them into multiple devices. Claws Mail is the one which gets to delete them, but only with a few weeks' delay.
