Are you still having issues in newer versions of Firefox?

Good question.  I got tired of having the toolbar button order not being maintained, so I wrote a CSS overlay to force the order.  I've been using that overlay for over half a year.  So I don't know if it's still an issue.

I have read feedback (I think on AMO) from users complaining to extension authors that their toolbar buttons are moving.  The extension authors generally write back that it is a known bug in Firefox and there is nothing the extension author can do to fix it.  So I know many people have experienced this issue, but I don't know whether the issue still exists.

I can try removing the overlay that forces the order, if you like. Just let me know.

Please try your original steps in a newer version of FF and see if the issue can be reproduced. Thanks!

Testing in progress.  So far, bug appears to be fixed.

Bug initially appeared fixed, but is definitely still present.  Tested and reproduced in Firefox 47.0.1.

Unfortunately, the bug is tricky and likely requires multiple elements to manifest.  I have not had time to create steps to reproduce it from a new profile, and given that I can work around the bug using a CSS overlay, I don't think I'll be making that task a priority.
