The Reset Firefox confirmation dialog could use some polish to make it more aesthetically appealing. We can consider moving it to an in-content page.
Depends on: 883955
As mentioned in https://mail.mozilla.org/pipermail/firefox-dev/2013-July/000518.html, I think it would be a good idea to explicitly mention some of the higher-value information that won't be restored, like add-ons and download history.
ISTM displaying all that info as soon as the user brings up the dialog might be overwhelming, considering the user already has a borken Firefox.  I suggest a brief message, much like the current one, but with a "show me more info before I make this decision" link added at the bottom.  The info is at https://support.mozilla.org/kb/reset-firefox-easily-fix-most-problems but it would need to be available offline.
At least it should be explicitly mentioned that addons and customizations will be lost, IMO. See also my (verbose) proposal in Bug 883955.

a opinion: the two buttons is no significant difference (including the text long/button size), I feel the very easy be misuse inadvertently.
