Customize Toolbar leads to doubled account list in "Get Mail" buttons drop down

Thunderbird build:

1. Start Thunderbird and click the "Get Mail" buttons drop down. You'll get a correct drop down with a list of all existing accounts.

2. Customize the 3-pane-windows toolbar (no change necessary - only open the customize dialog and close the dialog with "OK"! - "Cancel" doesn't lead to the bug). Click the "Get Mail" buttons drop down again. You'll get the doubled accounts list in the drop down.
Linux too.

A second activation of Customize Toolbar caused an additional duplication and looks like this will iterate each time Customize is activated and OK'd.

Joey, is this something you think might be due to the de-rdfification?

Either way, do you think you could take it on?
Sure, I think I understand what's going on here. If I'm right, it shouldn't be too difficult.

Do the doubled entries persist across a restart?

No, a restart restores the drop down list to a normal single listing.

The patch pretty much explains itself. The popup's children stick around, but it loses its initialized state, so it tries to bring them back.

I get a similar doubling of the account list - but in 'File' / 'Get New Messages for' - with Lightning installed.


1. Open the tasks tab (Ctrl+4)
2. Switch back to the mail tab(s)
3. Click on 'File' / 'Get New Messages for'

Is it a stuff for a new bug or would it fit into this one, if reopened?

Confirming this behaviour.
Just for the sake of completeness, more STR:

1. Disable Mail toolbar ('View' / 'Toolbars' / '[ ] Mail Toolbar')
2. Open the calendar tab (Ctrl+3)
3. Switch back to the mail tab
4. Click on 'File' / 'Get New Messages for'
5. Switch back to the calendar tab again
6. back to step 3.

Each loop adds an new duplicate of the account list in 'File' / 'Get New Messages for' as stated in comment #2 for the 'Get Mail' dropdown and the original STR.

Please reopen if appropriate.
Please file a new bug - and also note if there if it happens without lightning too.
