Hello, Everyone, you can add button in the one2many tree view.

this button will not be disabled

add button in sale orders line. 

<xpath expr="//field[@name='product_id']" position="after">
<button name="%(action_search_hotel_wizard)d" string="Search" type="action" icon="terp-gtk-jump-to-ltr" />

I think this will help you to add button in the one2many tree view without disabling button.

In Tree View, if you are defining a button, then define it with an icon.. because button will not be shown instead icon for the same will be shown in the Tree View...

So In your case,

<button name="return_action_to_open" icon="gtk-ok" ... />

Note: numerous icons are available, same can be used while defining buton..

I would try to define a new security group (or use existing one) and add to button definition groups=selected.group ...
