Re-enabling a Social provider enables as inactive

If I only have one service installed, when I disable and re-enable that service it gets enabled but is not active. I have to take an additional step to turn it on.

1. Start Firefox with a new profile
2. Go to and click Turn On
> Facebook sidebar and toolbar appears
3. Open the Add-ons Manager to the Services tab
4. Click the disable button for Facebook Messenger
> Facebook sidebar and toolbar disappears
5. Click the enable button for Facebook Messenger
> Services icon appears in the toolbar
6. Click the services icon in the toolbar
7. Click "Turn on Facebook Messenger"
> Facebook toolbar and sidebar re-appear

This may be a bug or may be as designed but I think we should re-enable services in the state they were disabled. In other words, if the service was active when disabled it should be active when enabled, and I shouldn't have to go through the additional step of turning it on.
