Extensions folder left behind

When using Firefox 3 Beta 3, a Extensions folder is left behind in the Application Data folder.

What extension

do you use? I use beta 4 and don't find any extensions to recreate your problem.

Fixed

This was an issue with 3 Beta 3. The launcher for 3 Beta 4 has been updated to handle this directory.

Still created on start

I upgraded to Firefox 3 Beta 4 and the Extension folder is still created on every run. Another folder called Crash Reports is also created on every run.

Created and Removed

It's created and then removed on exit. Unless firefox.exe gets hung and can't exit (Task Manager and kill it then FirefoxPortable.exe can exit and clean up). Which seems to happen relatively often in Beta 4. But that's why it's a beta.
