File | Import does not do Netscape, only Outlook/Eudora. I've just installed 0.9.7 on a new notebook, and I intended to start using it as my default browser. Before I can do that, I need my email and address book, which are in Netscape 4.7x files on another computer that I'm accessing today through the office LAN. I can't import the mail at all, since it is not Outlook Express, Outlook or Eudora. I can import the address book only if I convert it to Outlook Express, Text, Outlook or Eudora. I realize that most of the Mozilla testers will have imported their stuff a long time back, and might not be trying to do this with each build. But just look at the import options, under the File menu. I previously reported problems (essentially cosmetic) with the address book import (after I had exported my Netscape address book as a text file), but I don't have a fresh export of the address book right now and it is disappointing to find that the import still does not accommodate Netscape. Anyhow, I'm not going to bother with the address book if I can't get may email over here.
2 problems in one bug. (please only one problem in the future) You can import Netscape Mail database if you have installed NS4.7x on your system. Run "mozilla -profilemanager" and you will find you old Netscape Profile (Name) there and you can convert your old Netscape profile to a new mozilla profile. But you can't import the adress book The missing import function is : bug 63389 adress book import is : bug 35509 *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 35509 ***
