Providers can indicate content to be shown when one of the notification area icons is clicked - but not when the profile portrait is clicked.

Simplest would be to allow a new field - eg, 'portraitClickUrl' to the social.ambient-notification-area message (which already includes the URL of the portrait itself).  One downside of this though is that the provider doesn't get flexibility about how to show that URL - eg, they may want it shown in a popup panel like the other buttons (and conversely, some providers may not want the other buttons to be shown in a popup panel but instead in a new tab).  IOW, there may be a case for unifying all the URLs in the ambient area to be both consistent and flexible.

Assigning to Mike in the first instance to make a decision on the API.
this is related to the design in bug 763837.  I've pushed profile capability on the xulmenu branch,

As well, motown is sending the data to support this.  For ms1 at least, we can just open the profileURL in a tab.

for bug 765874 we'll need a larger profile image, and make sure displayName and userName are part of the profile request.

Summary: No facility to take action when profile image is clicked → need enhanced profile data from provider
