Oh, I remember Windows!

I understood that in Linux-bases OSes instead of reinstalling one
should simply erase $HOME/.app instead of reinstalling, as a reinstall
will just install what is already there.

In any case, there is no way to export the Firefox tags, which is a
feature that I use heavily. Otherwise I would have started with a
clean ~/.mozilla long ago.
