Is this a good and worthwhile change? It's aesthetically pleasing, but
we're now different from upstream and upgrades aren't clean.

The upgrade isn't clean anyway, for me at least, the old profile
didn't work. Besides, I like things that are aesthetically pleasing :)

Hear hear.  I eagerly await the introduction of firefox to the unstable
distribution.  The current version of mozilla-firebird is killing me
with bugginess.

If there is no upgrade path for profiles anyway, then what booteth it if
he changes the profile directory to .firefox in the current release?  I
was rather annoyed when mozilla-firebird created ~/.mozilla AND
~/.firebird AND ~/.phoenix
