Thunderbird 1.5 loses my profile folder settings
I've got a problem with Thunderbird 188.8.131.52 on Mandriva Linux 2006 with Gnome 2.10.
I've copied my TB profile folder, which before I only used under Linux, from a NTFS partition to a FAT32 partition shared between Windows and Linux. Then I pointed Linux TB profile manage to the profile folder and I can read it without problem.
However, if I close and restart TB it asks again which profile I want to use and has lost all settings about the profile folder.
I don't know if that matters but I installed TB through a tarball rather than the rpm, because I couldn't find rpm on urpmi.
Can anybody help?
