    I went from mozilla 1.7.3 to 1.7.4 and I lost all emails and bookmarks.
    I seem to remember this happening before with mozilla. My browser
    went from a sleek, custom beauty to an ancient square-looking piece of
    shit...and yet "about" said it was 1.7.4 even though it looked like 1.0.
    "Manage profiles" doesn't work...the profile name I had previously used
    was in the window apparently available but when I went to bring it up it
    said it didn't exist or something. Then when I went to create the
    same-named profile name it said it already existed!
    WTF happened? I have windows 98 SE. I'm writing this with T-bird even
    though the "new" mozilla appears to work ok.

    i had to reinstall 1.7.3 once or twice. the second time, i "forced" it to find existing profiles. (i'd used teh same name for folders as
    i used for profile names. not sure if that helped teh program, but it helped me.) I didn't have to slap it around for too long, and it
    worked.

    FWIW, I'm using non standard paths to profiles, because the default path,
    c:\blah blah\blah blah\applicatoin blah blah\ data blah blah\ Let's take a tiddle toodle walkie around teh globe\has anyone seen
    my spectacles\i'm sure i left them on teh boudoiur armoire\next to teh davenport\
    is ridiculously long.

    more recetnly, i went to 1.7.5 from 1.7.3,
    When installing 1.7.5, it found the profiles.



    --
    1 WinXp,Ff1.0.1GoogleBar, Sage
    2 WinMe, Moz1.7.5Gecko/20041217, all profiles: GoogleBar/XPI-rimental,PrefBar,bugmenot,,, and???CopyURL, IEView.
    Usually java off, js on. Could GoogleBar "merge" with (added) SrcChooser in PrefBar? (v. 3.1, build date 20050208)

    Thanks bub, I'll try 1.7.5 and if that doesn't work I'll use desktop
    google to find the shit.
