This is a request for a program that will search through a directory and it's
subdirectories looking for Netscape 4.X profiles. If one is found it will create
a new folder with the new Mozilla Profile Migrated from the old 4.X profile in
the same directory as the old profile.

The interface could be simple. It would need a "search for Profiles in this
directory", A checkmark to look in subdirectories, and "Name of Migrated Profile
directory". afterwards, it will tell the user how many profiles were migrated,
and how many failed.

For example, You have a directory on your server called C:\Users where all of
your Network users have their home directories. in their home directories is a
Netscape Directory where their Netscape Profile is located. With this program,
you would enter C:\users in the "search for Profiles in this directory" box,
checkmark the search  subdirectories, and would type Mozilla in the "Name of
Migrated Profile directory" box and press ok. Once the program is finished, If
their home directory had a netscape directory with a netscape profile in it,
there would be another new directory called Mozilla with a mozilla profile in it.

The usefullness of this program would be primarialy for large networks that have
many multiple users on their systems. Migrating like this all at once would help
admins with hundreds or even thousands of netscape profiles to easily migrate to
the new mozilla profiles without having to migrate profiles one by one for each
user on the network.

This bug is filed in a bugzilla component related to pre-Firefox code which no longer exists. I believe it is no longer relevant and I am therefore closing it INCOMPLETE.

If you believe that this bug is still valid and needs to be fixed, please reopen it and move it to the Toolkit:Startup and Profile System product/component.
