Session state is not restored and Sync not working after updating Firefox
Environment: Device: LG Nexus 4 Build: Nightly 26.0a1 (2013-08-27) to Nightly 26.0a1 (2013-08-28) Steps to reproduce: 1. Install Nightly 26.0a1 (2013-08-27) 2. Setup sync on the device and check to make sure sync is complete 3. Update Firefox from about:firefox page Expected restult: Firefox is updated, and synced data is preserved Actual result: Firefox is updated but synced data is lost, and user can not sync the data anymore, only after removing, then adding the account again. Note: This may be an issue caused by changes to Session restore, since "requested profile directory missing: null" is displayed in logs.
Seems potentially related to the logcat output from bug 910049 (https://bug910049.bugzilla.mozilla.org/attachment.cgi?id=796647).
I suspect bug 886925 as the cause. I am backing it out and requesting a respin of nightly.
I suspect this might be from the recent guest mode bustage we've had (bug 906030). i.e. we we're basically forcing the creation of a new profile named "guest" (not the normal guest profile), and now some nightly users are stuck on it. I see a --guest argument in the logcat above.

That --guest seems to have been caused by bug 886925 too. With the backout, the --guest part is gone. Marking fixed by backout of bug 886925
