Re: Importing Thunderbird address book from Windows
I have shared my entire Firefox & Thunderbird profiles for the last 6 years and many updates between XP & Ubuntu. I also copy entire profile to my laptop when travelling & copy back.
I find it easier to manually do the copy. In Ubuntu start Thunderbird just once and it will create a new profile.ini and new profile directory like xxxxxx.default. In Ubuntu the .thunderbird folder is a hidden folder, so in nautilus click on view and show hidden. Then copy your Windows xxxxx.default into .thunderbird and edit profile.ini with new XXXX.default name.
