Print useful error message if opening of profile fails due to permissions instead of opening profile manager
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:36.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/36.0 Build ID: 20150306140302 Steps to reproduce: Opened profile folder without permissions (current user differing from owner of `~/.thunderbird`) Actual results: Profile manager got displayed Expected results: An error message with the actual error (wrong ownership/missing permissions) should be displayed. Displaying the profile manager is pointless anyway, because if permissions for `~/.thunderbird` are missing, the profile can't be created anyway.
