BirdieSync add-on is not properly loaded in Thunderbird/Sunbird.

BirdieSync add-on is not properly loaded in Thunderbird/Sunbird.
If BirdieSync add-on is supposed to be compatible with the version of Thunderbird/Sunbird but doesn't load properly, there might be a problem with Thunderbird/Sunbird extension manager cache (this can happen if BirdieSync was not uninstalled before installing the new version). This problem can prevent BirdieSync sub-menu to be properly displayed in Tools menu or display an old incorrect version number in Thunderbird/Sunbird add-on list. More rarely, it can also make Thunderbird/Sunbird crash. If you use Thunderbird 1.5 - 3.1 and Sunbird 0.3 - 1.0b1: Before any operation, do backup your Thunderbird/Sunbird profile: XP: C:\Documents and Settings\[users]\Application Data\Thunderbird\Profiles\ Vista/7: C:\Users\[users]\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\ XP: C:\Documents and Settings\[users]\Application Data\Mozilla\Sunbird\Profiles\ Vista: C:\Users\[users]\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Sunbird\Profiles\ (Application Data is a hidden folder: in explorer window, you must check the option "Show hidden files and folders") Close Thunderbird/Sunbird. In the profile of Thunderbird/Sunbird, after having backuped the following files, delete them: - extensions.cache - extensions.ini - extensions.rdf - compreg.dat - xpti.dat Relaunch Thunderbird/Sunbird. Check if you can now access to BirdieSync options. If you use Thunderbird 5.0+: Before any operation, do backup your Thunderbird: XP: C:\Documents and Settings\\Application Data\Thunderbird\Profiles\ Vista/7: C:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\ (Application Data is a hidden folder: in explorer window, you must check the option "Show hidden files and folders") Close Thunderbird. In the profile of Thunderbird, after having backuped the following file, delete it: - extensions.sqlite Then restart Thunderbird. Check if you can now access to BirdieSync options.
