Find browser (Firefox) profiles in non-default locations


Tried to create launchpad acct - failed several times. So...

Requesting that BleachBit add the ability to find all Mozilla profiles for current user (either limited user or admin) in default & non-default locations. Bleachbit currently can't find Firefox / Mozilla profiles in non default locations.

Contrary to what some might think, a large number of Firefox users move profiles to other partitions for a variety of reasons.
Mozilla deems it common enough to have a KB dedicated to instructions how to move profiles.

Some reasons to move profiles from default location (for Firefox - in Windows, usually C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\
are to lessen data on the OS partition (for Mozilla & other apps)
make it easier to encrypt profiles if desired
make wiping free space on profile partition easier, quicker - w/o risking damage to OS
sharing same profile between user & admin accts

Note: CCleaner already has ability to find all Mozilla profiles for the user acct from which CCleaner is launched.

I guess until BB has ability to find Firefox profiles in non default locations, next best thing is to add the files / folders from Fx or T-Bird under the "Custom" section in BB.

I agree this is important. It's filed in LP as bug 1006691
