This behavior can be seen on any version of spice-xpi plugin. The explanation is simple: when a web page is loaded, there is a plugin instance created. Console button is blue (active), because the plugin instance returns "connected status" of non-running process (-2). When a process is launched, the button is gray due to positive connected status variable. When you reload the page, the plugin is shut, and once again loaded. In that state, the connected status is initialized to -2 and Console button is blue (active). It is hard to pair newly loaded plugin instance to running session, because, there can be multiple instances loaded in multiple tabs, windows, etc of firefox.
