I've created a new basic save file from which any more can be created. It includes my default apps and hardware settings. Pls I want to take my ff bookmarks/passwords and thunderbird email addresses and passwords from an estabilshed save file and put them into the new save file. Plese explain where they are and what they're called ad verbosum?

Hello. You should search the web or ask at some >Thunderbird support page, to see where the config files are saved.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profiles-where-thunderbird-stores-user-data

Check inside the folder
Code:
/root
, click on the top of the ROX window that "eye" to show the hidden files. Check if you have any hidden file or folder named
Code:
.thunderbird


Or, better, check your software , if it has some option to export the data you need, and import it in the new install.

Most browsers and email clients have a function to export bookmarks/addresses to a file which you can then import again to the applications running on another system. Palemoon for example: Bookmarks tab > Organize Bookmarks > Import and Backup > Export Bookmarks to HTML.
