It would seem like the fresh install do not have a profiles folder under 
which the profiles are saved,
The profiles.ini file do however stil look and work teh same you should 
find it under /*~/.thunderbird*/
Just copying your old email folder to here should work.

  When working on a computer you have to know enough:
  To fake what you don't know.
  Google what you can't fake.
  How (and when) to 'motivate' the computer to do what Google won't tell.
