I tested this with the Tor Browser Bundle (installed the latest torbutton, tested it for a bit, then uninstalled it). I am not able to reproduce the issue; torbutton seems to clean up after itself.

I think that dude was a troll who was just making stuff up, actually. If it's the same one I'm thinking of, he told us to burn in hell and said he left a flaming message on the Tor Project voice mail.

I was also unable to reproduce this on FF12 or FF13 on Mac or Linux.
