Pre-Hung door before or after tile

What is best practice?
Hang door before or after finished floor?
Same question for baseboard.
Appears that baseboard was installed first (after I removed tile) in my remodeling project.

Welcome DIY,

My personal preference is to always install moldings after the finished floor.

Door casings aren't too difficult to deal with if installed first (or already existing) as they can be under cut so that the finished floor slips under them. Baseboards aren't as easy. Though they can be undercut along their length with the appropriate tool you end up losing at least some of their original height. Sometimes a lot of their original height. It's also difficult to get into inside corners with any tool.
If I recall correctly my memory is excellent, but my ability to access it is intermittent.
