5. Address Book

5.1. Why didn't Mozilla migrate my Netscape 4.x address book?

Mozilla cannot migrate Netscape 4.x address book because the code to read the 4.x format is not open source. The workaround is to export the address book to LDIF format in Netscape 4, and then import the file into Mozilla.

Note Netscape 7 can migrate your Netscape 4.x address book (when you migrate your Netscape 4 profile.) or directly import Netscape 4 address books.

5.2. How do I import or export address books from or to another program?

Open the Address Book and go to Tools | Import or Tools | Export, each of which will bring up a dialog to guide you through the process. Mozilla saves address books in LDIF format.
