I just installed the new Prototype this morning. I first uninstalled the Old Prototype browser and rebooted. Then, because I wanted a clean install, I deleted the entire C:\Documents and Settings\Alice\Application Data\Netscape
folder, containing the profile data, so that a fresh profile would be created.
I installed into a new Program Files folder location by editing the install path from C:\Program Files\Netscape\Netscape Browser
to C:\Program Files\Netscape\Browser
, then I imported my preferred Mozilla profile data, when asked at the end of the installation.
Bookmarks and cookies imported fine, but not my password data. Using File > Import (from Mozilla profile) "Saved Passwords" also did nothing, although I got a message that it was successful. I think that was also a problem in the old Prototype and in Firefox as well. Even so, Firefox allows you to view your stored passwords, once saved. I couldn't get the Show Passwords feature to work in the NS Prototype2, even though I get the "are you sure" dialog box after selecting a username and clicking on Show Passwords in the Passcards Manager.
I noticed no one replied to the following so I will, just in case localhost
hasn't figured it out by now
I don't want the sidebar to show my bookmarks, I want sidebar pages to show in there.
I don't use the sidebar so I'm not sure I understand the first question but if you don't want the sidebar to show your bookmarks you can remove that in Tabs. Use the down arrow to customize what's available in the sidebar to check or uncheck.

You have to use the Customize Toolbars button (has a "wrench" tool icon) to add the "Bookmarks Toolbar Items". I had a hard time finding it... seems it was just labled "Bookmarks" with no icon (the regular Bookmarks has an icon) but when I dragged it to the Toolbar, a box labled "Bookmarks Toolbar Items" appeared. When I closed the Customization window, all my old Bookmarks Toolbar items appeared, since I had imported all my data from my Mozilla profile during the Install process..
If you import your bookmarks at a later time, or have created a new profile and then import your bookmarks, You'll need to open the Bookmarks > Manage Bookmarks window, select your OLD Personal Toolbar folder and then use Edit > Set as Bookmarks Toolbar folder. Alternately, drag the folders you wish to use in the existing Personal Toolbar folder, which will have the Edit > Set as Bookmarks Toolbar folder. greyed out.

You can change the Tab-opening behaviour in Tools > Options > Tabbed Browseing using the drop-down arrows. Change it from Current Tab to Blank Tab.
