Found while testing 'losing prefs.js' bug 155080 and doing set up for another test 1. Clean Mozilla (all profiles) 2. Create new profile- verify QL is on 3. creat mail/bookmark/activation check prefs file after close 4. launch second time from start/program/app/profilemanager 5. delete profile 1 (do not delete files) 6. create profile 2 - different activation, bookmark 7. when trying to create mail- mail from profile 1 displays :( 8. view profile dirs via explorer....data being written to profile 1 (.slt) dir view prefs....new activation data written to the file, old mail settings there- in wrong directory 9. close/relaunch- profile 2 has empty prefs file! 10. repeat steps 5-9 this time delete profile files makes no difference- profile 3 uses profile 2 data and second launch shows no prefs for that profile (7/16 build on WinME)

Severity: normal → critical
This did not occur when I created new profile -without deleting other profile-new settings were saved in proper directory. If QL is on, and I try to delete the single profile being used (whether I choose to save files or not), that directory remains open to the app. If you try to delete the profile from explorer, you are warned files are in use.
