The idea is to prevent any unknown security breeches from compromising
your anonymity. If, say, Firefox has a zero day exploit that will,
even with Torbutton, leak the saved sites, usernames, and passwords to
a script (this is unlikely, but an example) they having an entirely
separate Firefox installation would save your anonymity. The same
idea applies outwards to the operating system.
