I used the utility, MozBackup.exe, to create: Firefox___.pcv and Thunderbird___.pcv. How do I import or use these files to update from AutoCADGuru to ProCADGuru

Posted

Firefox Team,

I used the utility, MozBackup.exe, to create: Firefox 3.6 (en-US) – 2013-02-10.pcv Thunderbird 13.0.1 (en-US) – 2013-02-10.pcv

How do I import or use these files to update from AutoCADGuru to ProCADGuru?

Thanks in Advance,

Kenny

Bakshara, to restore your data for both Firefox and Thunderbird, read this:
http://kb.mozillazine.org/MozBackup#Restoring.2Fmigrating

If you have problems restoring the .pcv file, read this:
http://kb.mozillazine.org/MozBackup#Problems_restoring_with_MozBackup.3F

The source of the confusion is this:
"How do I import or use these files to update from www.AutoCADGuru.com to www.ProCADGuru.com?"

Mozbackup does not backup files from your website. It only backs up Firefox & Thunderbird files saved on the computer.

Please update to firefox 18.0.2 then explain more clearly what you are trying to do Update Firefox to the latest version

Question owner

I had Firefox 17.0 and I got a lot of scripting errors, and it would lock up. That is way I went back to 11. Anyway Firefox Support recommended that I use MozBackup.exe. They placed a notice that it is not by or supported by Firefox, but it does do a great job. I used that program to create backup files. Autodesk's legal department threatened me with a law suit, because my domain name had “AutoCAD in it. So I change it to ProCADGuru. I created” Firefox 3.6 (en-US) – 2013-02-10.pcv and Thunderbird 13.0.1 (en-US) – 2013-02-10.pcv to back everything up. Now I need to know how to use them to restore all of that saved data and update it to my new domain.

Please update to Firefox 18, Firefox 11 is no secure nor should it be used anymore. If you have errors in 18 I can help you fix them.

As for how to set up your website, we can't help you here, please contact your webhost.

What does my version of Firefox have to do with my initial question, Firefox 3.6 (en-US) – 2013-02-10.pcv and Thunderbird 13.0.1 (en-US) – 2013-02-10.pcv. All I want to know is how to use those .pcv files to do the update. How do I import or use these files to update from www.AutoCADGuru.com to www.ProCADGuru.com?

Question owner

I have upgraded to Firefox 18.0.2. Now will any of you finally answer my very fist question? Firefox 3.6 (en-US) – 2013-02-10.pcv and Thunderbird 13.0.1 (en-US) – 2013-02-10.pcv. All I want to know is how to use those .pcv files to do the update. How do I import or use these files to update from www.AutoCADGuru.com to www.ProCADGuru.com?

As I said at the very beginning, importing your website into another host is something you need to figure out with that host, Firefox has nothing to do with your web hosting.

You said, “As I said at the very beginning, importing your website into another host is something you need to figure out with that host, Firefox has nothing to do with your web hosting.” Previously you said, “Please update to firefox 18.0.2 then explain more clearly what you are trying to do Update Firefox to the latest version” My “webhost” helped me get email forwarding from my old domain name email addresses to my new domain name. I used the utility, MozBackup.exe, to create: Firefox 3.6 (en-US) – 2013-02-10.pcv and Thunderbird 13.0.1 (en-US) – 2013-02-10.pcv I need to know how to use these to restore all of my Address books, email books, sent, saved, and settings for both Firefox and Thunderbird.

You are giving conflicting information

Your question started with "How do I import or use these files to update from AutoCADGuru to ProCADGuru? "

Then you said:

"Autodesk's legal department threatened me with a law suit, because my domain name had “AutoCAD in it. So I change it to ProCADGuru. I created” Firefox 3.6 (en-US) – 2013-02-10.pcv and Thunderbird 13.0.1 (en-US) – 2013-02-10.pcv to back everything up. Now I need to know how to use them to restore all of that saved data and update it to my new domain. "

Then you said:

"How do I import or use these files to update from www.AutoCADGuru.com to www.ProCADGuru.com?"

So all that you have explained so far has been about closing down one webhost and moving to another, which has nothing to do with Firefox or Thunderbird.

Then today you say:

"I need to know how to use these to restore all of my Address books, email books, sent, saved, and settings for both Firefox and Thunderbird. "

What is the problem you are trying to solve here? is this about transferring Email settings in Thunderbird, Bookmarks in Firefox, moving a website from one host to another, or something totally different?
