[Samba] csc policy

Hello you all,
we are in the process of upgrading to windows 10 on all our
workstations. We see one problem with redirected folders. We redirect
Appdata to a network share.

        comment = Profile Data Share
        path = /srv/profdata
        csc policy = disable
        hide files =

This worked great (although slow) with terminal servers on Win2008R2 and
Windows 7. Now the clients on win10 experience error in Thunderbird and
Firefox. THe files  cert9.db and cert8.db sometimes can not be read (a
pop up shows with unknown certificates etc) If you close the program
everything works again. Only Firefox and Thunderbird are effected.
Chrome has no Problem.

My questions are:

Has anybody had the same Problem?

Is "csc policy = disable" still recommended for profile shares as stated
in the WIKI and is it also recommended for redicrected folders like this?

How do you guys handle csc policy for other shares. We always have it
