It seems that whenever I switch profiles any changes to the preferences for the
old profile are not saved. 
E.g. start up in profile Fred
change mail preferences to include forwarded mail as inline not attachment.
do stuff
switch profile to Gertrude
do stuff
switch back to Fred
and note that the preference for forwarding is still attachment and not inline.
Same seems to be true for bookmarks.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.see above details

Expected Results:  
Preferences should be saved for the current profile when the preferences dialog
box is closed.

Please read the component descriptions... this has nothing to do with the
preferences window, does it?

And you want to test with at least 1.3final; 1.3b had this issue....
