...and the profile is fully restorable too. 2 days ago, I was surprised to
have seen all my cookies, passwords and plug-ins recovered, 6 months after
my colleague had wiped Firefox off his Windows PC. I used to be using that
PC in a stale environment without Linux in sight. Firefox installation takes
about 2 minutes in Windows and less than a minute in Linux.
