When finding 4x profiles to migrate, we look in SystemFolder:Preferences: See: http://lxr.mozilla.org/mozilla/source/profile/src/nsProfile.cpp#1770. Running under OS X, that folder location is meaningless. It is possible under OS X to specify that ::FindFolder(...) should look in the Classic environment on that machine. There, we would find :Preferences: and thus 4x profiles.
I think this should be OSX+.

Created attachment 43793 [details] [diff] [review] Patch to allow Classic Prefs folder to be found under OS X
Migration works with this patch because, when asked for the Preferences folder under OS X, it will look in the Classic domain. I just added this behavior for prefs because I don't think we should do this in general.
Steve, Simon - Can you r=/sr=?
as long as we're only doing it for pref migration, r=sdagley
Fix checked in.
