I'm pretty sure this problem is new with 29.0.

If you customize something (the layout of that new drop-down menu with the three-horizontal-lines icon, or a hotkey for an addon, or whatever), and then FF crashes or is terminated (as opposed to being closed through the in-FF command), all your customizations will be forgotten the enxt time you restart.

And that's stupid and terrible.

Is there a fix for this bug/
