Disabling plugins, "status" stays even after re-install


    • Icon: Bug Bug
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Icon: Minor Minor
    • core
    • None
    • 2.380

      Reproduction steps:

      • Install a plugin
      • Disable the plugin
      • Uninstall the plugin
      • Re-install the plugin

      At this point, the plugin is installed, but disabled.

      As a user, I was very surprised to not see the features from the plugin and had to look back that it was disabled. I expected to see the status to be reset after uninstalling.

      This behavior is even weirder when you are installing a new plugin which has a dependency that falls into this situation, leading to the new plugin being not active due to an old disabled + uninstalled plugins.

      (Filling as a minor bug, no worries if someone wants to move it as a improvement/other)
