Direct profile selection on mod install

It would speed up the mods installs from the browser. When "Install"ing from the browser, it redirects the user to the downloaded program to install the mod to a profile. Why are we prompted with a Create new profile, Select profile every single time? Seems unnecessary. Even more since Forge can detect the profiles which could store the mod, let us directly see our profiles in a list, pick the profile by left clicking it as a single-selection, add a checkbox on the left to retain the multi-profile selection functionality, and then add the option for a new profile at the bottom or top of the profiles list.

    This is already a feature that is available after the Select profile option.

    Thats the problem, it has to be selected every time which becomes a hassle when installing a bunch of mods.
