Migrate application settings from an outside source.
Application (Profile-migration code) Toolkit (Startup code) service, contractid("@mozilla.org/toolkit/profile-migrator;1")
Do profile migration.
When this method is called, a default profile has been created; XPCOM has been initialized such that compreg.dat is in the profile; the directory service does not return a key for NS_APP_USER_PROFILE_50_DIR or any of the keys depending on an active profile. To figure out the directory of the "current" profile, use aStartup.directory.
If your migrator needs to access services that use the profile (to set profile prefs or bookmarks, for example), use aStartup.doStartup.
The startup code ignores COM exceptions thrown from this method.
Import existing profile paths.
When the app is started the first time, if there are no INI-style profiles, appstartup will call this method to import any registry- style profiles that may exist. When this method is called, there is no event queue service and this method should not attempt to use the network or show any GUI.
