Question

Ubuntu upgrade to Firefox 19.0.2 - profiles.ini overwritten

After automatic update of Firefox from v. 19.0.1 to 19.0.2 profiles.ini was either deleted or overwritten and a new profile created.

Have to admit I got a bit scared at first, but luckily all the old profile folders was present and a manual update of profiles.ini fixed it.

My questions are if

  1. this was a freak accident or if it was an issue with the last upgrade.
  2. if anything could be compromised (security).
  3. if I frequently should back up profiles before upgrade.

Thanks.
