The default location of the SeaMonkey 2.7.2 profile is on the C drive, here:
C:\Documents & Settings\<Your Windows User Name>\Application Data\Mozilla\SeaMonkey\Profiles\xxxxxxxx.default
Places.sqlite is located in the 'xxxxxxxx.default' folder.
To find the location of the folder that SeaMonkey is actually
using, in SM mail, go to:
Edit | Mail & Newsgroups Account Settings | Server Settings
At the bottom of the dialogue box, there is an entry labelled 'Local directory', that will contain the complete path to the profile that SM 2.7.2 is actually
With SM closed
rename all other
SM profiles, then run SM and see if your bookmarks are still available. I have never moved a SM profile out of the default location, so I'm afraid I can't help you with that, if your bookmarks aren't still available. If they are
, all well and good!
But in fact, On my D: drive there are whole bunches of
places.sqlite-x.corrupt files, where -x is a number. What is
all this is aid of?? Shall I delete the .corrupt files????
I'm not sure what causes the 'corrupt' places.sqlite files but, yes, you can delete them, with SM closed
. I would suggest also deleting 'places.sqlite' itself and copying the bookmarks.html file from your SM 2.0.11 profile, into that same folder. When you next run SM, places.sqlite will be re-created and should
incorporate into itself, the bookmarks.html file you placed in that folder, so that your bookmarks ought
to be available in SM 2.7.2.
I hope that helps.
