User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:2.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/4.0.1
Build Identifier: Profile Manager 1.0

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.  The folder in this location is not renamed when Rename is selected from the context menu.  Consequently, the cache and phishing database in the folder that hasn't been renamed are not subsequently used.  This folder should be renamed, just like the one in Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles.  

Reproducible: Always

Reproducible: Always

The folder in Local Settings\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles is not renamed.

Expected Results:  
The folder in Local Settings\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles is renamed just like the folder in Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles.

I believe that this was for the old profilemanager replacement tool that we were building and then no longer needed to build and the project was thus abandoned.

I'm going to recommend we close this as WONTFIX sound good jgriffin?

Yes, sadly, no one has time to maintain that it seems.
