Description

From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.8+) Gecko/20020227
BuildID:    2002022700

Just installed a new build and the old bookmark file would not work, I created a
whole new profile and only overwrote the abook.mab with the old one.

The file was still the same size and loaded fine but none of my old folders
showed up, only personal addresses and collected addresses.

I had other folders as well

Reproducible: Didn't try
Steps to Reproduce:
1.create a new profile
2.copy the address book file
3.

Actual Results:  did not work, i have lost my address book

Would be nice if we could have an import address book function, import from the
mozilla format. Is this going to be supported already or should I submit a request?

Do you still experience this problem?

You can try exporting the address book in ldif format and then importing the
file into your address book. 

Also, bug# 63389 covers the issue of importing Moz address books.

2002101717 does not exhibit this problem, and no other build has, i'm sure its a
one off, please verify
