What is "foxmail?" Does it have an export facility from the address book? Into what formats?

i believe in foxmail you can export it to a txt or ldif file, so what you want to do is export it in either of those formats, i'd suggest ldif and than go into thunderbird. Select tools > import > address book > text file (LDIF, .tab, .csv, .txt) and you should have your address book now.

It is a modified mbox format. The string on the first line is what delimits the different emails. Replace all instances of that string with "From " (with a space at the end), and then copy the file to thunderbirds mail folder in the proper place. I put mine in "~/.thunderbird/<profile>/Mail/Local Folders"

Thanks Guest,
This is no longer an issue for me. I no longer use Foxmail, or Thunderbird.
