FirefoxSetup-0.9.exe on WinXP

1. Start the Firefox profile manager
2. Create a profile in any location (Lets use the windows desktop)
3. Name the profile anything you want (in this case, we'll use "test")

Result:
In the case above, there is no "test" folder created. All the profile files
(bookmarks.html, prefs.js, etc.) are placed on the desktop.

Expected result:
A folder on the desktop called "test" should have been created, and all the
files would go in the "test" folder. (ie. \desktop\test\prefs.js).

I don't know if this change is intentional or not, but I think a folder, named
after the profile, should be created.

No salted directory: good
No profile folder created: bad

This change was intentional. If you want to use the folder \desktop\test choose
that folder specifically.
