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
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
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.
Thanks for the previous help. I solved the bookmarks problem, but I
am still vexed over the address book. I have an abook.mab folder with
all my address book info, in narrative form. I tried dragging the
folder, and/or the shortcut, to SeaMonkey but it does not work. I was
told to open my address book, 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.Right now, all those addresses are so near and yet so far.
Mort, do a Windows Find Folders or Files, looking for "abook.mab"
(without the "") over your entire computer. How many abook.mab's do
Thanks for the response.I found two abook files on my hard drive:
C:Documents and Settings\Mort\MyDocuments\backup\app d... 237 KB MAB
C:\ProgramFiles\mozilla.org\SeaMonkey 498 KB MAB file 6-30-2009
I'll await your reply, and thank you again.
O.K., Mort, make an additional email address in your SeaMonkey Address
Book, doesn't have to be real.....or better yet, open your Address Book
and delete one of the addresses that your haven't used for yonks.
This should give you an Address Book with todays date on it. Then do the
Windows Search again, see which file has a new date attached to it!!
It may be, perhaps, possibly, that you should be using the
C:\ProgramFiles file, but SeaMonkey may have lost its handle and may be
using the old backup version, instead.
