✔ The old eCleaner extension (unmaintained) has been merged into PrefMon and improved, the changes are as follow:

➜ It now checks all preferences namespaces rather than just the 'extensions.' one, since there are some old add-ons which aren't storing the prefs there.

➜ It now lets you remove non-standard Profile files/folders. The entries listed there aren't part of a clean Firefox install, but in any case be careful with what you remove since it might be in use by some extension or the browser itself. If in doubt, just ask.

➜ The listed items has now a context-menu which lets you examine the entry (either looking at about:config for extensions, or opening the containing folder for profile files), and also lets you search the entry at Google.
