can't really reproduce, Mozilla uses the same profile as Netscape btw and
installing Mozilla 1.4 shouldn't kill the bookmarks.
Product: Browser → Seamonkey
Netscape schouldn`t use the Mozilla profile folders but that`s a netscape bug
and upgrading Mozila doesn`t delete the bookmarks (wfm in all upgrades from M16)
