Capability to provide Firefox Browser Profile path for RFT script playback in Linux

Currently the capability to provide Firefox Browser Profile path for RFT script playback (to select specific version if 2 FF versions are installed) on Linux machine is not available.
Playback considers only the default browser path which is used on Linux machine.
If different applications have dependency with different FF versions, then default browser needs to be changed every time before playback.

    This request is implemented in RFT 10.2.1.

    Now, user can specify the user profiles for Firefox browser on which you want to playback Functional HTML tests in UI Test preferences to playback with WebUI. If you do not set the user profile for the browsers, then the default profile is used to play back Functional HTML scripts.
