Can't run Linux Firefox on WSL

See original GitHub issue

There’s no way to override the changes made in #96, I can set FIREFOX_BIN to use the linux firefox, but because of the wsl detection it tries to convert the profile path and causes the linux wires to get crossed.

Yeah, sorry about that. I didn’t think anyone was actually trying to running Linux Firefox from WSL. It seems the majority of people are trying to run Windows Firefox but we should allow both.
