[Bug 252718] [NEW] corrupted xul file??

Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: thunderbird

When I try to open my address book I now get an alert with the message:
XML Parsing Error: not well-formed
Location: chrome://messenger/content/addressbook/addressbook.xul
Line Number 1, Column 16:  dirTree.focus();

I haven't had any problems lately and there's no reason I can think of
to expect any corruption in the address book itself.  In my
configuration, the applications directory is under a vfat directory at
/windows/d/application_data/Thunderbird/Profiles/gh4c4dp6.default but I
haven't booted into windows for months.

I don't see anything that looks like addressbook under that directory
and using locate I don't see addressbook.xul anywhere on my system.  For
that matter, I don't see anything that looks like an address book for
thunderbird anywhere on the system.

According to help->about, this is version of thunderbird under
Ubuntu 8.04.  To the best of my knowledge.

Hopefully there is some way I can recover my addressbook.

This looks a bit like Bug 93101, but that was reported so long ago I
doubt that they're the same.

It's interesting that help->about gives version but apt-cache
policy gives

I have restarted thunderbird once but get the same result.

apt-cache policy thunderbird

Help please :)
