Default profile just for regular users

Even though when we have bugs like the one Gavin mentioned, the memory
footprint never goes beyond single digit MB until you actually open the
devtools. That particular bug had only a few KB of impact.

Do you by any change have Adblock Plus installed ? There are known issues
that Adblock Plus can potentially double the memory usage [0].

Both Firefox devs and Adblock devs are aware of the situation and are
working on fixing the root cause.
