Seams like when the ABP icon is being removed from toolbar, the icon is not being removed fully, but placed under BrowserToolbarPalette for seamonkey.
So the toolbox.ownerDocument.getElementById("abp-toolbarbutton"); does not return null when the button is not being shown:

And basically that is cause an error which prevent button of reappearing when the browser is being restarted while the correct state of the icon is not being saved during toolbox.ownerDocument.persist method call.

Strange, I can't find BrowserToolbarPalette with DOM inspector while seams that it should be under "addon-bar" ->
Anyway in FF it's looks like that BrowserToolbarPalette is somehow hidden from toolbox while in SeaMonkey it's in toolbox and seams that it's a reason behind the issue.
