What does it mean? "You haven't used TFFx for a while, do you want it to be restaurated, so you'll have the experience of the first day?"

I mean, I know, what it says, but what will be restaurated?

I use TFFx every day, and still I get this message from time to time since a few weeks (with two Updates in the meantime). Does it keep all add-ons, bookmarks, history, session manager files, etc. as it is now or does it delete everything, when I click the button "restore TFFx".

(In German it says "restaurieren" which more applies to old pictures, houses etc., but I assume it may not mean restaurate, but restore.)

    This message sometimes appears after an update if the application wasn't restarted for awhile, since the timestamps seem to indicate a long time since the application was opened (which is technically true). The original English prompt is: "It looks like you haven't started TenFourFox in a while. Do you want to clean up your settings for a fresh, like-new experience?" This is the same thing as resetting TenFourFox -- see "How to reset your profile" at the bottom right of this page for more information on what that does.

    The message is harmless to ignore. However, if it bugs you, you can disable it permanently with the steps in this Mozilla support ticket: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1084402
