Might be a problem with your internet..
but I got this from the site

I believe you shouldnt have to do much more than the copy and editing of
the pref.js file. You need to edit prefs.js as there are absolute
references to the profile path inside it and they of course will be
different on the Win machine.

This is an article about how to share a profile between Linux and Win on
a dual-boot machine -- but point 5 lists the prefs.js changes that are
required. They can act as a base reference even though your problem
statement is very different:

I also suggest you look at
http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_folder_-_Thunderbird

which might have some pointers.
