I now have two problems that I really cannot solve by myself, running SM 1.1.17, Windows XP Pro. (In addition, the backup to an external hard drive stopped working, which was not obvious until Vista conked out and I tried restoring from the backup h.d..)

My SeaMonkey has very few bookmarks, probably originating with Microsoft. All my thousands of bookmarks are on my hard drive, but
1) They are in Firefox, not SeaMonkey.
2) They are in full printout form, and I need them in the usual hierarchical form with + and - signs.

Morton, start SeaMonkey and go to the Browser, then, on the top bar, select "Bookmarks" and then "Manage Bookmarks". Then you want to import your FireFox bookmarks....you may just be able to go File->Open Bookmarks File if Firefox saves its Bookmarks as HTML or else try Tools->Import. Might get you going.

How can I change their format and move them to their proper place in SeaMonkey? Simply dragging the icon over did not work.

My e-mail setup includes "inbox" and "local folders". Under inbox, my sent e-mails from 2007 to today are there. However, under local folders, the sent icon is absent, and this had my older sent e-mails copied over from my first laptop. These older sent e-mails are in fact on my hard drive, as I found them in a search. However, they too are in full printout form, and not the desired hierarchical form with + and - signs. I need help getting these old sent e-mails to their proper place in SeaMonkey and in the desired format.

In addition, my address book seems to be absent. Can anyone give me the name of the SeaMonkey folder or file in which the address book resides?

abook.mab contains all your email addresses.

I am sorry for the long message, but I am having many problems that I cannot solve, and I have basically 12 years of my life in that laptop.

Thanks a lot in advance, for any help that anyone can give me.

That might get two-thirds of your problem fixed....see how you go.


Hi Daniel and group,

Thanks for the previous advice. I solved the bookmarks problem, but am still troubled by the address book. I have an abook.mab folder with all my address book info, in narrative form, on my hard drive. I tried dragging the folder to SeaMonkey, and also its shortcut, without success. I was told to open my address book folder in SeaMonkey, then close it, then save my abook. file in place of the newly created one. I cannot seem to do this at all. If someone could walk me through the necessary steps, I would be most grateful.

Thanks a lot,
