User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.8.0.3) Gecko/20060426 Firefox/1.5.0.3
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.8.0.3) Gecko/20060426 Firefox/1.5.0.3

Ran firefox with shortcut arguements like this:

"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -P

created new profile.

Accidentally set profile directory location to desktop. 

Tried to delete profile from within firefox.

Seemed to hang, I press control alt delete but the firefox finnished with out me ending task.

This randomly deleted files on my desktop. In total I ve lost around 10 gigs of photos and music. 

I'm "experienced" with windowsxp (im a web application programmer), though I admit i did not want to try and recreate this bug.

thankyou.
