.dat and prefs .js store the path to mail folders as absolute, not relative paths
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020826 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020826 The files panacea.dat and prefs.js store the paths to mail folders as absolute paths, not relative paths. This causes hell when trying to restore your old mail from a backup into a freshly created profile with different salting. I've given more details and a workaround in my comments in bug 63389 Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3. Expected Results: Store all paths in the profile as relative paths with respect to foo123bar.slt This wouldn't be so bad if you could create a new profile, then change the name of the salting directory.
