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.
Component: Core → General
Product: Android Background Services → Firefox for Android
Blocks: 1042369
OS: Unspecified → Android
Hardware: Unspecified → All
[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.
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.
