I was running SM 2.0a3 on WinXP for about an hour but decided to

Control settings and then re-installed 1.17 with no problem.

My main reason for uninstalling was the inability of the SM 2.0a3 to
import all 8 of my profiles. It would only import 1. I understand
there are work arounds (discussed in another thread) for this problem.
However, I would really like SM 2.0a3 to give me the option of
clicking on all of the profiles for import instead of just one.
Yes, that's kind of a show stopper. Requiring the user to do magic for
something which should just WORK is going to keep some users from
upgrading, and people who make use of multiple profiles probably are the
kind of user you want saying good things about a new version.

First of all Beta1 is the current one, not alpha3 ;-)

I didn't mention that to the O.P. since the problem remains...

Of course the migration of more profiles would be a luxury but you can
migrate with only a few steps:

The following is useful, but I suspect it's complex enough to confuse some people. And I haven't migrated a profile after it was renamed, hopefully that will work.

If you wish to migrate more than one profile or set the profile name,
run SeaMonkey with the following arguments (one after another):
            * Seamonkey -createProfile <ProfileName>
            * Seamonkey -P <ProfileName> -migration

Hopefully the original poster will see that. But I hope that by whenever the actual release takes place that this won't be needed. I doubt I have more than three useful profiles on any one machine, but I do know people who have many. Particularly Windows people who seem to share logins more than Mac/Linux folks.

Thanks for the link.
