Lets blame iffy behaviour on what the end of the day is a set of text files on your machine.

How the fuck does a set of text files affect the reliability of a native desktop application? Obviously there is some iffy coding going on.

BTW I use Firefox.

Your whole computer is working on a set of text files be they machine code or computer languages. Mozilla is afraid of losing your data by converting and optimizing it so they are very careful. A nice example is a sqlite optimization where you get a 2-4 speedup. It was only activated on a new profile. Now they are trying to update every profile. To me it is very little effort to create a new profile and go on with what I was doing. So just to be sure my Firefox stays optimized I create a new profile about every 6 months. Especially because I run every nightly build as my daily browser.
