I have had many versions of mozilla/firefox/thunderbird installed on this box.

I have uninstalled all of them, and removed directories where I could find them.
 Recently I installed Moz 1.7.5 for someone and noticed somethings about their
Received message window that was different from mine.

They had alternating colors for the messages, and I do not.

Again I uninstalled my 1.7.5 version and removed the directories, and
re-installed 1.7.5 and still no alternating colors.

I have 3 imap accounts on this install and one pop3 and two smtp authentication
setups.  When I go to compose new message, the From drop down just lists the
'Your Name' field that is populated under each account; again on the new install
of 1.7.5 that I did for someone else it listed the name and email address and
account (some of it was in a lighter grey and italics)

I use the smoke theme and just got the latest version from spuler.us; it didn't
make a difference.

I'd like to know what I can do to make those settings come back :)

It seems mozilla has no problem overwriting my prefs.js when it comes to things
like the 'Side Search Box' :) (which I keep having to disable after each install.)

Whatever I can do to help please let me know, b/c I have this same thing
happeneing on my other win2k box at work.

Again, several revs of moz suite have been installed on that box, and it just
seems that I don't have all the latest little features; but I do have 1.7.5

Reproducible: Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install 1.7.1
2. Overwrite install with 1.7.2
3. Overwrite install with 1.7.3
4. Overwrite install with 1.7.4
5. Overwrite install with 1.7.5

Actual Results:  
I did not actually do this before I submitted this bug.  But this is the way
that I feel it happened.

Expected Results:  
I feel that mozilla should have updated my setting where it could or notify that
it needed to do a merge on some settings.  Or at least something telling me that
might not have something and possibly how I might need to manually merge some
settings on my own.. something more than nothing would be nice.
