cmjprous: would you provide a step-by-step for "backing up" and "import/ing"? I'm using a Macintosh computer. I did try making a copy of Netscape and importing, no luck.

Thank you for your replies. I did what you suggested, to no avail. Would have helped if I gave this info in my original question:

I want to import all settings, data, folders FROM Netscape 7.2 Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.7.2) Gecko/20040804 Netscape/7.2 which is on a PowerMac G4 running OS10.11.4

TO Thunderbird 52.9.1 on a Macbook Air running OS10.12.6
