User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041111 Firefox/1.0

After installing Thunderbird from installation disk of Fedora Core 3, initial
opening of Thunderbird asks if I want to import from Netscae, Mozilla, etc.  I
accept Netscape, Mozilla, etc. and Thunderbird appears to import all email,
address book entries, newsgroups, etc. and reports success.  After clicking on
finish button, Thunderbird closes.  Future attempts to open result in a window
flashing for a second on the screen and closing.  The only way to open again is
to delete the .Thunderbird folder from my home directory.  The program will then
open again and request if I want to import my data.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open Thunderbird
2.import from Mozilla 1.7.3
3.click on finish

Actual Results:  
Thunderbird closes and refuses to open again.

Expected Results:  
Thunderbird to open with all of my previous data intact.
I think you meant to file this against Thunderbird rather than Bugzilla...

I also note that you installed this from the RPM on the Fedora install CD.
You should only report bugs here that can be reproduced with an official Mozilla
build.
