I won't bore you with details, but a recommended computer "expert"
screwed up my laptop in many ways.Due to Vista problems, he changed to
Windows XP Pro.After his many errors, he told me that he does not have
the patience to work with SeaMonkey.
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
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,
