(In reply to Richard Newman [:rnewman] from comment #3) > Please file an additional bug to delete any existing logs, and have it block > Bug 1042369. Hooray for less storage impact! As seen in bug 1393058, some users get the storage on their phones filled up with GC/CC logs, which are intended only for debugging. rnewman asked for a bug on deleting existing logs, so here it is.
[Tracking Requested - why for this release]: This is hundreds or thousands of megabytes for affected users. This is not something we should delay in fixing.
I'd like to track this as a blocking bug for Fennec 57. The sooner this is fixed the better.
Dylan, could you share a status update on this bug? Thanks.
Created attachment 8919491 [details] [diff] [review] Delete Downloads/memory-reports on startup if it exists An easy enough fix once I was able to actually test it! This just uses DelayedInit to spawn a task to delete the log directory if it exists.
