My computer did not shut down properly last night.
As a result, TB started up thinking it was a new installation.

How can I teach TB where all my files are?

Thanks!

Thanks very much Dan.
It did the trick.

My prefs.js had been initialized.

A copy had been made an hour before the crash, so I just copied the old file
to prefs.js and all is in order again. :)
