I can confirm this problem. In Thunderbird 69, the customization of the
header toolbar is broken
(https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1556261). And this breaks
my addon Compactheader. So in the moment the only possibility to test
it, is to use the treeherder builds of the comm-esr68 branch
(https://treeherder.mozilla.org/#/jobs?repo=comm-esr68). But the users,
who are on the beta branch of Thunderbird and have downloaded the
lastest version of the addon from ATN will now have a broken version of
the addon.

An again, there is no more beta channel on ATN, so I cannot post a
simple fix for it there.

This is certainly not a good situation.
