User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624 I have a new network card (Sierra Wireless) that often does not shutdown cleanly. When this happens and requires a chkdsk/scandisk, 90% of the time the files that are bad are mozzilas. It seems Mozilla could use a better thought out way to update these, or call sync more often. I am not making changes, or adding bookmarks so I am not sure why these files are in flux, perhaps too much dynamic info is kept in too few files? Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. shutdown windows 2000, and have it hang 2. run scandisk 3. check found.NNN and often find mozilla droppings Actual Results: bookmarks and settings are gone Expected Results: These files to not be in flux when changes are not being made, updates to be done more atomically (ie, write out a temp file and rename into place so old data is not lost until update is complete, sync to be called etc)
