 In #13318, we tried to set a specific ordering of our addons by setting
 browser.uiCustomization.state. Unfortunately, because our addons get
 installed at browser first run, this pref is getting altered and addons
 are installing themselves into the toolbar anyway, and in an order we do
 not control. This causes the browser.uiCustomization.state pref to get

 Ideally, we'd be able to enforce this pref's original values upon addons
 after their installation. Unfortunately, resetting this pref to its
 original default value does not take effect until after browser restart.
 We need to somehow tell the browser to reorganize the addons back to this
 default state after their installation.
