Firefox Preferences Cleaner – Remove Add-On Preferences on Uninstallation

One of the biggest issues that I personally have with Firefox, and that for a very long time, is the fact that add-on preferences are not deleted when the add-on that has written them to the config is uninstalled in the browser.

Up until now I have deleted obsolete entries in the Firefox preferences manually, but an automated, or even semi-automated, solution would be more than welcome, considering that I install and uninstall many add-ons every month.
