After a profile has been deleted, the files are removed, but the name still
exists in the profile list on startup

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Create a profile
2.  Delete a profile and select, "Delete All Files"
3.  Restart Firefox

Actual Results:  
The deleted profile is still in the list

Expected Results:  
The deleted profile should no longer be in the list

I looked into it, and it appears as if the profiles.ini file in
~/.mozilla/firefox/ is not being updated.  I deleted the entries from there and
they no longer showed up in the profile list.  The files that were supposed to
be delted were deleted automatically by the profile manager though.

No, this is not a duplicate (or so I don't think).  It doesn't crash on delete.
It just doesn't remove the item from the profile list.

Well, I specified Linux, so it may work in Windows, I don't know.
