User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2.13) Gecko/20101203 Firefox/3.6.13
Build Identifier: Profile Manager v1.0_beta1

On Windows XP SP3, Firefox stores the cache and some other files in C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles.  This data is not currently removed by the Delete function.  It should be deleted too.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Delete a profile with the context menu.

Actual Results:  
The profile is removed from profiles.ini and its folder is deleted from C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles.
Its corresponding folder in C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles is not deleted.

Expected Results:  
Its corresponding folder in C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles should be deleted too.

Also, I suppose there should be an option not to delete the profile data files at all.  The current profile manager implements this with a warning dialog which has "Don't Delete Files" preselected.  Selecting "Delete Files" removes the profile folder in both locations, as expected.
