REPRODUCIBILITY :
This bug can be reproduced always.

Release Regression From : mustang
The above release value was the last known release where this 
bug was not reproducible. Since then there has been a regression.

                                    

Comments
EVALUATION

This is due to parse the string in FireFox profiles, we should compare it without case sensitive. If user is using a absolute path for their profile, we will hit this corner case and throw exception.

This is a regression from bug 6411479, will fix it in Mustang B98.
