Mozilla and Thunderbird issues

Discussion in 'Firefox' started by =?ISO-8859-1?Q?Brian_H=B9=A9?=, Nov 2, 2006.

  1. Hi
    2 parts to this post I would like some help with please.

    Firstly, I had a system crash and had to reinstall OS and all software,
    (without formatting).
    Mozilla won't even start up, I uninstalled and reinstalled in case
    mozilla.exe was corrupt.
    Someone suggested it may be the firewall, so I set outpost to mark
    database as corrupt and to rebuild on a reboot. No joy.
    I have moved over to Thunderbird but would like to find the reason why
    Mozilla isn't starting.

    Second part of my problem is, I would like to import my mailboxes from
    Mozilla to TB, but the import options only seem to allow for
    Communicator 4.x, Eudora, Outlook and OE, but no references to Mozilla
    in the wizard.
    Is there any way I can get to import my mails or have I lost them until
    I can get Mozilla to work again?

    cheers
    Brian

    Mozilla ver 1.7.20060.41421
    Thunderbird ver 1.5.0.7
    Windows 2000 pro SP4 (could it be SP4 messing with me?)

    On question one, will profile Manager start?

    Start>>Programs>>Mozilla>>Profile Manager

    If so, create a new profile and see if Moz will start in the new profile.

    On question 2, when you first installed Thunderbird, it was supposed to
    ask if you wanted to import data from an existing Mozilla profile. Once
    the initial profile is created, you no longer get that option. You can
    remove the profile, start TB, and you should get that import dialog
    back, at the expense of losing any mail stored in the TB profile. Or
    you can migrate the mail manually.

    The following article should give oyu some guidance:

    No, it doesn't want to know either :-(

    No, TB never asked me that at time of install, I don't really want to
    remove the profile and start again, (not yet anyway).

    Thanks, I'll give it ( ---^ ) a try when I get a chance.
