Attached patch test fixes (obsolete) — Splinter Review
while investigating intermittent failures in bug 847124 and bug 846600 I noticed a provider pref hanging around throughout the social tests.  This patch:

- fixes leak of pref into later tests
- ensures added providers are fully removed prior to finishing test file
- adds new check at end of each test file to check that providers have been properly cleared out
Attachment #753962 - Flags: review?(felipc)
I found one other test leaving a provider enabled.  This adds to the previous patch a check between tests that we don't forget or fail to remove a provider we added for an individual test.

test provider leakage between tests

Review of attachment 753999 [details] [diff] [review]:

Good clean-up! It's a bit confusing for someone writing a new test to have this callback set-up of either calling one or the other.. Are tests expected to call finish manually if they define a callback?

Not sure about the naming and spelling of finallFinishChecks.. Maybe defaultFinishChecks? It also helps clarify it can be overriden.
