Bug Description

Precise Desktop 20120419

Test Setup:
2 existing OS before installation of Precise:
* sda5:
  - lucid i386 french
  - 1 user named 'lucid'
  - 2 bookmarks added to firefox
* sda6: oneiric i386 french
  - 1 user named 'oneiric'
  - 2 bookmarks added to firefox different from lucid
* sda7: free space for new installation

1. Install Ubuntu Precise Desktop French on sda7
2. In m-a, select all the available items in the list.
  During this test, migration assistant recognized both installations and asked to import firefox bookmarks for both (Only FF bookmarks was listed)
3. Proceed with the installation
4. Reboot to 12.04LTS and login
5. Launch Firefox and check that bookmarks were imported

After installation and reboot to newly installed 12.04 LTS imported bookmarks are not found in Firefox.
