First I apology for my bad english, but I hope you will understand me.

Expected Results:  
It will be good if program will start.

I tried thunderbird 0.9 in zip file:
ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/thunderbird/releases/0.9/thunderbird-0.9-win32.zip
Now Profile manager works!
Then I install thunderbird and the profile manager does not work. But if I run
thunderbird from zip file then Profile manager works.

I try nightly build too (0.9+). 
2004-11-23-13-0.9/ThunderbirdSetup.exe  <- Profile manager in this does not work
2004-11-23-13-0.9/thunderbird-win32.zip <- Profile manager in this working

Maybe is something wrong with install program?!

I found problem. Something else is wrong!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I extract thunderbird from zip file and map name was thunderbird and the profile
manager was working.
Then I rename map name to Mozilla Thunderbird and Profile manager doesn't work.
Then I install Thunderbird, BUT not in defult directory (Mozilla Thunderbird,
BUT just "Thunderbird" or "MozilaThunderbird (together)."


Profile Manager having problems with default directory name "Mozilla
Thunderbird"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Be quiet, please, Peter. Don't corrupt system.
See bug 247973.

Anyway, I believe this bug should be closed as INVALID or WORKSFORME.

Ok, I'm sorry.
But I didn't mean bug 247973.
I'm talking about "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Thunderbird" directory.
The name "Mozilla Firefox" must be writen without any space.
Maybe is this the same bug as 24793, I dont know.

I'm sorry again if I write to much, but I didn't know where to write about my
problem.
