Because older versions of Firefox auto-select a profile if there is only one in
the database when running dev-edition which uses its own profile we create a
default for normal channels to use. Currently the browser code is responsible
for doing this but it uses a bad heuristic for deciding when to do that. It's
much easier to do it from the profile manager when the dev-edition profile is
created.

Make the profile service responsible for protecting against downgrading to builds before dev-edition had a separate profile. r=froydnj
