What are these different .default profiles of Avant Browser doing?

Hello,

I'm trying to fix the problem where I cannot make Avant Browser with FF renderer to let me see PDF files in the browser. I must download them to see it but this problem does not occur under Incognito and PDF are fine, so I'm researching what the problem can be. Maybe it had something to do with the settings under about:config so I'm now on the backup drive to see if I can copy the original prefs.js settings to the configured AB browser to see if it is a setting there but I see that I have here 4 different profiles and what are they?

The profiles here are stored at the location:
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\Avant Profiles\.default\gecko\Mozilla\Avant\Profiles:
fmnsumc2.default
tww6enok.default



C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\systemprofile\Application Data\Avant Profiles\.default\gecko\Mozilla\Avant\Profiles\z75yet88.default:
z75yet88.default

C:\Documents and Settings\LocalService\Application Data\Avant Profiles\.default\gecko\Mozilla\Avant\Profiles\p5l5p7h9.default:
p5l5p7h9.default
Ca anyone help me to understand this? I know that there is a default one/Incognito? and one with my settings, extensions,... etc. but I have here 4 different profiles?
