I'm not sure if this is a bug but I'm seeing the following error in the browser console when launching a new installation of m-c. The error only appears the first time you launch m-c and won't appear after that.

NS_ERROR_FAILURE: Component returned failure code: 0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE) [nsIProperties.get] XULStore.js:66


* install a new instance of m-c
* once installed, open the browser console and you'll notice the above error
* close/reopen m-c and you'll notice that the error doesn't appear anymore
Maybe the profile is somehow not initialized yet?

XULStore.js seems to assume that there will be a profile when it is loaded, which is definitely not true in some cases. But we do know where the profile will be using the key ProfDS instead of ProfD, so that may be the better thing to use here.
