TorBrowser creates empty directory in "/tmp"

I'm using the latest TBB on Linux.

After I start TorBrowser, the directory is created in temporary direcrory (in my case /tmp)

drwx------ 2 user user 4096 Mar 1 12:34 Temp-41d8a42b-5545-4af5-89c2-be2502af95c7

The directory is empty. After I close the TBB, this directory disappears. Not sure if it's OK behavior or not.

Not sure what is causing this behavior, but ideally there should be no (empty) directory created in /tmp I think.

I'm pretty sure it is created by Firefox, because more of such directories are being created when I start the regular Firefox.
