I'm using pretty much the standard i3 config and sometimes I press the wrong keys and this extra bar shows up at the top:
I believe it's the "parent container"? How do I hide the bar again? It disappears if I close all windows on that workspace, but reappears once I open a window again. I'd like to find a solution that doesn't require restarting i3.

This looks to me like you've switched to a stacking layout. For example, I have this in my config file:
bindsym $mod+s layout stacking
bindsym $mod+w layout tabbed
bindsym $mod+e layout toggle split
The default is usually
split. Perhaps you pressed
$mod+s to switch to stacking. Try
$mod+e to switch back.
See section 6.3 of the i3 docs:
