So what i did is, auto-mounted my win partition each time f16 started and just pointed the t'bird to the windows location.
But a few days back i got an error i was dreading, i faced it last time i tried this with ubuntu, only this time i faced it in windows instead of linux.
When i fireup t'bird in win7 it gives an error, an instance of t'bird is already running. When in fact there is no process running. So t'bird has simply stopped responding in w7, but it works fine in f16...so far i.e
