seeking "restore" & "migrate" for Thunderbird & Firefox
How do I recover all of my mozilla stuff from "over there" into the working Karmic "over here?"
I cannot be the first person to have something like this happen.
I cannot believe that there is not a good HOWTO for this sort of thing. I really REALLY need to get my historical messages and contacts back. Can someone please explain...
Over there, I have a Firefox profile and a Thunderbird+Lightning profile including me email messages from a running Ubuntu Hardy (v8.04.3 LTS).
Over here, I have a new Ubuntu Karmic (v9.10) with everything installed from the repositories including Firefox and Thunderbird + Lightning (+Sunbird).
Between here and there is a drive created with Clonezilla that then became corrupted shortly afterwards because of a loose operator nut during an upgrade to Jaunty (v9.04).
I think that I have backup files of everything that matters in addition to readable folders at here, there and between.
This was supposed to be a straight forward, every day, replace the drive with new and larger until the operator nut became loose.
