Normal users will just complain Firefox ate their data


Profile migration isn't rocket science. We're not talking about some homegrown browser with 2 devs, we're talking about a major consumer product.
Clearly they don't give a shit about this feature or otherwise it would already have been implemented.

Actually, profile migration IS a bit like rocket science when you have a product this big and this customizable. Even the smallest change to something could break settings in third-party modules (add-ons/plugins) and you don't have control over those.

Other browsers have fewer profile-related issues precisely because Firefox is so customizable by comparison. Mozilla should be held to a high standard, of course, but it's easy to forget that.
