Description

6 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:19.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/19.0
Build ID: 20130108230421

Steps to reproduce:

1. Make a backup of your localstore.rdf.
2. Open Firefox and close it.
3. Compare the localstore.rdf from your profile with the backup.


Actual results:

Firefox reordered the elements in localstore.rdf. Randomly there are even default elements added or removed.


Expected results:

Firefox shouldn't change anything on localstore.rdf if the user has nothing changed in Firefox.
>Firefox shouldn't change anything on localstore.rdf if the user has nothing changed

Why not ?

The logical content hasn't changed, why want we to have unneeded disk activities on every exit of Firefox (which even delays a shutdown of Firefox)?
Component: Untriaged → XUL
Product: Firefox → Core
We're no longer actively using localstore.rdf, it is xulstore.json and a different format. Therefore marking this as no longer valid.
