I have a group called "grey button" with a text layer ("ok, got it") and a shape layer ("large grey") within in it.

Sometimes the two elements within the group show up in the layers palette and sometimes they don't when I open the parent folder.
When I click the drop down for the group folder, it looks to be open but sometimes nothing shows beneath it.
When I can get the items within the group folder to show beneath the folder, then close the parent folder sometimes the folder looks closed but the children elements are still showing beneath it.

I attached a couple images to show the different states. I also isolated the group to show the visiblity on and off to more clearly show what i mean.

Scratch that - you have layer filtering turned on, and you're only showing the layers that match your filtering criteria.
