Marked P2 on the supposition that these add-ons aren't doing anything crazy, and there's something in our customizableUI code that means we're not restoring them properly. This might not be a very solid assumption. I don't have time to look right now, but I can have a closer look once we've worked through our performance blockers.

Trying to reproduce this. I can see the hellboy firewall icon going away, but haven't been able to investigate why that is yet. I can't reproduce the issue with DTA; once I've added the icons (all 4 of them...) to the toolbar, before the awesomebar, they all stay there just fine.
The Hellboy issue might go away after fixing bug 887438, but it's possible it'll require more work on the add-on author's part to make this work. Marking the dependency for now, and then we can resolve as appropriate if/when that bug lands.
Depends on: 887438
Ever confirmed: true
Egh. The add-on in question disappeared off :-\

I'm faaaaaiiiirly sure this got fixed, so I'm going to mark as WFM. Please reopen if you can still reproduce with other add-ons. Thank you! :-)
