1.) Create a new profile, and close the browser. 2.) Make the cert7.db file read only. (cert7.db or other files can be in use if psm.exe is for some reason still running) 3.) Start the Profile Manager and delete your new profile. What is expected: That you would get a warning that deleting all of the files in the profile failed. What happens: No warning.
This bug is an offshoot of bug 50774. The instructions to reproduce as given there were more general so I'm repeating them below. Note that you do not have to do anything like marking the files "read-only" as indicated in the instructions above. 1. Create a new profile and start browser 2. Do something that creates a cert (e.g. task->privacy->password-manager->change-password) 3. Visit a few pages so that a history.dat file is created 4. Exit browser 5. Restart in profile manager (e.g., mozilla -profilemanager) 6. Click on "manage profiles" 7. Select profile last used 8. Click on "delete profile" 9. Click on "delete files" in the dialog box that appears 10. Look at directory containing profile. You will see that indeed all the other files got deleted but the cert files and history.dat did not.
It's posible this could be a security/privacy issue.
does the back-end to report errors even exist? if not, I guess a new bug should be opened first against the Profile Manager back-end..
