** Description changed:

  Binary package hint: firefox-3.0
  
  Firefox forgets the location of the main window each time I close it
  down and start it back up. I have investigated this, and it turns out
  that Firefox rewrites parts of the localstore.rdf file in my profile,
  and thus changes the screenX="499" setting to screenX="0" as can be seen
  in the below diff.
  
  Steps to reproduct:
  1) Start firefox and move the main window until it touches the right edge of the screen.
  2) Shut down firefox.
  3) Start Firefox again
  
  Result: Firefox is positioned on the very left side of the screen.
  Expected result: Firefox should be started in the position I left it.
  
  Below is a diff that shows what changes are done by Firefox to my
- localstore.def file between step 2 and 3:
