I do not know how I got there, but I somehow got into a situation where I could push a button 'Refresh', or in Dutch 'Opfrissen'. Firefox then started to remove settings and extensions. Which is all well documented if you know it. But the user interface is just crap here. Especially in Dutch. Because 'opfrissen' is something that sounds totally innocent in my native language. I at most expected it to remove some cache memory. The last thing I expect pushing a button with that name is that it does what it did, without any warning! PLEASE change that. And please do not translate it with 'opfrissen', just explicitly say: Go back to standard configuration and remove extensions. I am not dumb that I could not understand what that should do. Opfrissen.... Pfff, please change at least the translation!

And I got really angry when it happened!

Was it a button on the about:support page or somewhere else? After clicking this button you should see a confirmation dialog with the following info: "Maak een frisse start om prestatieproblemen op te lossen. Dit verwijdert uw extensies en aanpassingen. U raakt geen essentiële informatie kwijt, zoals bladwijzers en wachtwoorden."
