Description

Warpzilla defaults to putting preferences in OS2\Mozilla, which may not 
be the best for a WSOD environment.

Need a shell variable to specify alternate location for prefs.

OK, we've added an environment variable called MOZILLA_HOME that when set is 
used for the location of the preferences and stuff.

When it is not set, we use the location of the EXE.

This is done to guarantee we are on a long filename file system.
