Bleachbit finds only "the" default profile in Firefox

Forums: 

Did some checking in latest BB 1.6 - on Vista x64.

I have (for instance) a couple extra "user created" profiles, in the default location for Fx: C:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\\. The "default" profile - "xxxxxxxx.Default User" is also there.

I started Fx 33 using a profile I created - located in the default profile path / folder (as above). Not the profile named "xxxxxxxx.Default User."
Visited a couple of sites, closed Fx & didn't clear any history.

With an SQL browser, verified that browsing history records from that session were in the places.sql. The cache files in the profile used also contain data.
Then did an analysis (preview) w/ BB. It still doesn't find that profile or show any files from it that need cleaning - including cache files.

Maybe not as many users store Mozilla profiles in custom * locations, * but many do create additional (new) profiles in the default path.

Strange - for additional profiles (in both default & non-default paths), CCleaner finds some of the files / folders that need cleaning - but not all. So it has problems with this also.

Yes, thanks. Andrew filed it based on my post about the problem - some 2.5 yrs ago. :(

Andrew is a busy person, and when he has time for BleachBit, he only focuses on what he and the community thinks are bigger priorities for BleachBit. Andrew tagged this for the next release, so this should fixed in 1.7 beta (1.8 stable), when it is released.
