installed new theme in thunderbird & now it won't open

i've downloaded and installed a new theme for thunderbird. Now thunderbird won't open.
Cant remember which theme as I was experimenting at the time. i've started a new profile to get it working but have "lost" my address book. I can't see a way to import it into the new profile. I am using xandros.
Any ideas on how to reinstate the original profile or to import address book would be greatly appreciated.

Possibly you can simply, using the new profile, uninstall all themes except the default, exit the program, and restart using the old profile. I'm not sure where themes are installed. If they are not installed in the profile (where your address book and other settings are stored), then reinstalling Thunderbird could get things going again.

I would seriously consider asking this kind of question at the MozillaZine forums, they'll be much more competent to help.
