So I was dumb enough to try Mozilla's "Address Book Palm Sync" function, which actually steals registry settings from the Palm Desktop software and copies your Palm user folder into the Mozilla folder. Not that it tells you any of this, or restores your original settings after you "uninstall" the Address Book Palm Sync. Sigh. It took me about a day to realize that my data wasn't going to the right place (thank you, Showtimes conduit, for breaking), and another day to figure out how to fix it: I had to look under "U.S. Robotics" in my Windows registry, then go into "Pilot Desktop" and "Core" and restore the correct value for "Path." How's that for a blast from the past?
