I don't know if the error report
363416 cri 
is meaning the same thing.
I witnessed that, Firefox is creating every day about 60 small files. 
11168ADEd01 , 130D3397d01 , ..., F9B0AF68d01 from 2007.04.15
04DCD514d01 , 05F5E29Dd01 , ..., FF61BCD2d01 from 2007.04.16 and so on all the time.

Where are these files? These just sound like files in Firefox's network cache which would be perfectly normal.

screen shot for the 2007.04.16 files

In the mean time I will delete all old files from my PC, with the exeption of
2007.04.15 and 2007.04.16, days which I quoted.

Those are just the cache-files - there's nothing wrong with them. And they will be removed automatically, when the cache is full and more room is needed.

As per comment 3, these are cache files. You can make your cache smaller if you like through the options but the files are auto-removed when the cache is full.

As two people explaim to me, the matter is harmless, I will have a glance on the
matter for some days, and then believe. I hope you are right. 
If these cache-files remain in a range of 24 to 36 hours, and all older are automatically removed - o.k.! 
Their are just, "book-mark" files behaving in a similar manner. Of course it seems just one file a day to remain, and not the 60 I witnessed with those "caches".
As I wrote: I will keep having an eye on the matter, hoping it is all harmless as
you tell me.
