Created attachment 476207 [details]
unhelpful dialog

1.Launch Thunderbird
2.Click Tools->Import
3.Select Import Everything,and click Next
4.Click Next

Actual results:
Blank screen without any information what's the current situation (apparently user has no other account to import data from) and unhelpful button Next which does nothing.

Expected results:
Expect some information of the current situation so that user can understand what's going on

I would suggest the option of browsing to another directory location where the old e-mail files are located, i.e., the identities folder on another hard drive for Outlook Express, etc.
