The drag is successful, I can drag to addon buttons to any toolbar.
However after restart they are back again in the customize toolbar, except for the buttons moved into mail toolbar (Get messages, ....)

For example:
uBlock0_1.28.5b9.thunderbird.xpi
preferences_button-1.0-tb.xpi
toggle_message_pane-1.0-tb.xpi
config_button-1.1-tb.xpi
restart_button-1.0-tb.xpi
taskviewlayout-55.3-tb.xpi

Can I do something to keep the buttons where I moved them?

Are you using any sort of cleanup utility, li CcLeaner?
Have you confirmed that all of those extensions are compatible with version 78?

I tried the restart button. It is in the customize toolbar window at startup.

P.S.

Here is an extension that adds a Restart menu item in the File menu.

Yes, I'm using CcLeaner.
EDIT: Only "Compact databases" is set for Thunderbird

Preferences_button, toggle_message_pane, config_button, restart_button and taskviewlayout is from addons.thunderbird.net and marked as "Works with Thunderbird 68.0 - *",

I use regularly preferences_button, toggle_message_pane, config_button, restart_button, and they work fine, I'm just getting to know taskviewlayout.

uBlock0 is beta, and is from Gitgub, works fine.

Thanks for the list, Preferences_button, toggle_message_pane, config_button, restart_button and taskviewlayout is in "Thunderbird MailExtension or 78 Compatible (83)" list.

The restart button is a browserAction button and the default toolbar is the "Mail Toolbar".

A browserAction button works correctly on the default toolbar. If I move a browserAction button to the "Menu Bar", then the button moves to the customize toolbar window at startup.

browserAction buttons don't persist outside the default toolbar

I tried to set the "Menu Bar" currentset in the xulstore.json file using the error console, but the workaround fails.

So this is officially a bug, unfortunately for 9 months now.

The Mail Toolbar is unfortunate as default as I think, because in most cases the tabs hide it, so the buttons are not visible.

Is the default the developer's decision or a Mozilla default?

I don’t know about this, it is beyond my knowledge.

The default toolbar is the decision of the app developers, not the addon developer.
