Bug Description

We need a way to reset preferences easily. The original support question was broader than that but technically speaking we have too many different things going on, we need to go step by step. For now this is about preferences and all that is part of the "config" file in the config folder and comes out of Midori.WebSettings.

From a question which said:

Dear developers, how can I install Midori on my computer system as if this would be the first time it is installed?
In other words, how can I get rid of all my former activity traces in Midori (speed dials, preferences, window size, etc.)?

dconf allows restting config values. Why do you use a text file instead?

Similarly to all other XDG-compliant programs, "rm -rf ${XDG_CONFIG_DIR-~/.config}/midori" will remove all Midori configuration.

Also see the Firefox and Chrome reset features, it would likely be best if this was in about:version or the options pane.
