From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:0.9.8+) Gecko/20020202 BuildID: 2002020208 I use my D partition for applications and data. While Mozilla allows me to install to my D:\APPS folder, it will automatically use the C:\Windows\Profile folder for mail & cache and there is no graceful way to move it to the D: partition. File locations should be handled much better Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.See Description 2. 3.
I think you're talking about the browser profile manager, not the mailnews database. All the browser data goes where the profile mgr puts it, as well the mail/news data. Mail allows you to put your local folders on a different directory, or a different drive, of course.

Using the profile wizard, it's possible to create a profile anywhere you like. But, it will automatically migrate a 4.x profile only to C:\Windows\xxx That's what's happening here since you're talking about installation so making dup of that bug. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 24954 ***
