Why? The police already keeps it (obviously) so your privacy is already lost. I'd rather have it be open to the public what exactly is being stored than kept secret forever. The other edge of the sword is that when police conveniently 'lose' their footage, it can now be proven otherwise, if it's kept secret, not so much.
It creates that directory in the Mozilla directory because it's from Mozilla. And, it is probably using the same profile that Firefox uses.
When running multiple versions of browsers that are related, you really need to create a separate profile for each of those browsers.
If you should installl Chrome, then install SRware Iron Browser, the same thing will happen - Iron will use your Chrome profile.
Yeah, I have. Not terribly recently, but - - - well, lemme check it right now.

LOL @ the phones and tablets with half gig of ram. The wife decided she wanted a tablet. She wanted no input from me, she was going to do this all on her own. When it finally arrived, she was enthralled with it for a week or so. Install a couple "apps" and her memory was gone, and she's caching to disk, waiting MINUTES for a page to load.
When she bought a desktop, she handled that very much the same way. She sent me several links, and asked me to pick the best. I sent back the "best" link, and bluntly told her that if she didn't get AT LEAST 8 GB of memory, she was wasting her time. Argue, fuss, complain that I'm just trying to spend her money, blah, blah, blah - until I reminded her how much money she wasted on her tablet.
So, yeah, I'm with you on the memory - I need to upgrade. A second or third generation dual core Opteron at 1.8 Ghz and 4 gig of ram is ancient history these days.
Uhhhhh - no, it doesn't work with "all firefox extensions". Many, yes, all, no.
Click the link, and read. Browse the forum. They are very upfront about the fact that they are NOT Firefox, haven't been for some time, and never will be again. I think that fits the definition of "fork".
That would make a great bumper sticker. Even better, a bumper sticker on a police car.
Did you create a new profile, or did you try to run IceCat over top of your Firefox browser profile? That IS one method to force a FF-like browser to crash.
"Who do you think is paying for the free stuff?"
End users. Customers. Consumers. The unwashed masses. The advertisers don't pay for anything - they skim money off of you and me, and half a billion other end users, then they imaginatively put some infinitesimal part of that money to use giving away "free stuff". TANSTAAFL
Next, browsers will come with a disclaimer: "Epileptic persons should not use this browser."
There are plenty of suckers out there who have no concept of privacy or anonymity. So - along with fifty million other users, I deprive Mozilla of an income stream that they imagined that they were entitled to. Are they going to notice? All fifty million of us together aren't hurting Mozilla any at all.
Maybe you meant to say "Iron Browser" rather than Chrome. The official Chrome or Chromium from Google scoops up more data than Firefox even dreams about.
Yeah, I like Iron pretty well, but I'm growing to like Pale Moon better.
And, if those don't suit you, you can always go with this one.
The memory footprint for that last one is almost invisible on a 4 GB system!
"Features" are in the eye of the beholder. If I need DRM to access a site, I just move on to something more interesting and/or important. I simply do not play that game. If I wanted to be digitally restricted, I could always get caught robbing a bank, and spend several years in prison, right?
I suspect that a lot of people THINK in pictorial form. When I want to go to slashdot.org, I type slashdot.org. Yeah, the browser autocompletes for me, but I continue typing the address in. I've been doing it that way since before there was a Firefox, it's a habit that I see no need, or even a desire to break.
Wonder how many slashdotters couldn't find slashdot without a shortcut? The idea is hilarious, IMHO.
