Bug Description

Currently using BleachBit 0.7.4.

Is it possible in a future version to include the ability to selectively choose which cleaner you would like to run, without touching BleachBit's settings or unchecking any cleaners?

For example, say a user just wants to clear his Firefox cache. He would start BleachBit, right-click the "Cache" entry, and select either "Preview this cleaner" or "Run this cleaner". He would also have the ability to right-click the Firefox menu and do the same thing, which will only run the Firefox cleaners (history, cache, cookies, vacuum, etc).

I have found myself wishing to only run a single cleaner, but I did not want to uncheck everything, press the "Preview / Delete" buttons, and then recheck everything I had previously configured.

It's already possible via CLI, at least in version 0.8.0
