Build Identifier: 

When using Firefox3 together with Firefox2, Firefox3 will use the last used profile. If you close Firefox3 and keep Firefox2 with a different profile open, log out and in, Firefox3 will be opened with the profile, which was used by Firefox2 before.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Firefox3 and Firefox2 with different profiles
2. close Firefox3
3. log out of X11
4. log in again
Actual Results:  
Firefox3 will open with the profile which lastly was used by Firefox2

Expected Results:  
Firefox3 should open with the profile, with which he last was opened

Should affect other products, which use new session manager too

Yes. I've tested it with Firefox 26 on Windows 8.1.

1. open Firefox with profile "A"
2. open Firefox with profile "B"
3. close Firefox with profile "B"
4. Log off from Windows
5. open Firefox; opens with profile "B"
