Question

How does the Firefox crash reporter know my email address?

When Firefox crashes, the crash reporter is pre-filled with my email address. How does it do this? I don't recall specifically giving it at any point in the past, other than registering for this help forum awhile back. Even if I *did* enter it in the crash box at some point in the past (it's very possible that happened and I just forgot), I still don't understand how it gets saved. I clear cookies every time I close the browser. (I use Ccleaner and have selected cookies set to "save," but Firefox and Mozilla are *not* among the "cookies to keep.") Is it stored in my profile once manually entered in a crash report? If so, how could I remove it? This question is more about curiosity than 'concern." Thanks.
