Regarding my four old profiles, they were not in a standard location.  I
had Profile Manager (SM 1.1.x) put them in [C:\WINDOWS\Application
Data\Mozilla].  Can SM 2 migrate one of them from there on installation?
 Is this the cause of my problem?

Go to Mozdev at <http://www.mozdev.org/> for quick access to
extensions for Firefox, Thunderbird, SeaMonkey, and other
Mozilla-related applications.  You can access Mozdev much
more quickly than you can Mozilla Add-Ons.
