Note: There are a few cases of duplicates in user autocompletion which are being worked on.

Should allow a user to choose the existing profile that is being used.

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win 9x 4.90; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20021212
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win 9x 4.90; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20021212

Sun is using mozilla now. One thing that is annoying is that mozilla does
not allow me to use the same profile when I log on to a different machine
than my office desktop. For example, 
    my login name:  jjj
    my desktop's name:   guest1

    I usually log on to guest1 always and has mozilla running always too.
    Sometime, I went to different sun campus and remotely log on to guest1
    from another machine, say guest2, as jjj. Then, when I launch mozilla,
    and mozilla asks me to choose a different profile, otherwise, mozilla 
    cannot be run.

    It is better for me to share the same profile because I log on as the 
    same user. Mozilla can ask me if I want to use the different profile,
    but it should not prevent me from using the existing profile.
   

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. log on to a machine, say A as user U. Launch mozilla
2. log on to the same machine from another machine as user U too
3. launch mozilla in this new machine, and choose the profile that 
   was used in step 1
