After fix of this issue, we should ask people who still will see ABP icon in bookmarks bar to deal with corrupted profile:
Steps to fix:

  1. Start SeaMonkey in safe mode ( )
  2. Check "Reset toolbars and window sizes" checkbox
  3. Click "Make Changes and Restart".

While we are storing information about ABP Icon possition in localstore.rdf using Persistent Data:

We should ask users to go through current procedure, anyway It's only about users who have ABP installed.

Another option could be to delete the Persistent_Data on Cache or History Clear operation (have listener that will clear Persistent Data), or to delete it when the ABP is removed.

Anyway in that cases we should also think about if we store data that also need to be deleted on - Cache, History purge or on Addon Remove (maybe in that case that would be separate issue).

The reason for having the icon in the bookmarks bar by default is styling. SeaMonkey comes with two themes by default: Default theme and Modern theme (yes, it was indeed modern around year 2000 when this theme was created). There is no way to ensure that our icon looks somewhat okayish in the toolbar for both. Placing the icon in the bookmarks bar is the only way to ensure it doesn't look horribly out of place in SeaMonkey. Whoever can live with the broken visuals can still move it over.
