    When I first installed Mozilla-1.0.2 i copied my Netscape bookmark folder
    into/usr/lib/mozilla-1.0.2/defaults/profile/US. Worked like a charm.
    Recently, I revised the Netscape file, renamed the Mozilla file and copied
    the Netscape file into the same Mozilla location. Fired up Mozilla and it
    still shows the old bookmark list. Renamed *both* files and rebooted
    ( the Bill Gates solution ) without copying another bookmark file.. At this
    point there sholdn'tbe an active bookmark file in the
    /usr/lib/mozilla-1.0.2/defaults/profile/USdirectory, right?
    Guess what..started Mozilla, hit bookmarks and it still showsthe first
    Netscape file I had copied over. A file that doesn't exist!

    Any soothing words of sanity/ advise woul be *greatly appreciated.
