Woke up this morning. Went to check my emails. It was blank, asking me to create new accounts. Seamonkey had no bookmarks or address book. Profile looked normal except for a few extra files compared to a backup copy.
No way to import backup copy.
I copied a backup copy of my profile into current profile directory and everything seems to work.

What happened overnight?

Kubuntu 18.04
Seamonkey 2.53.9

If it happens again I would diff the files against your backup to discover which file was hosed.

Thanks for the reply. A diff was the first thing I did. Here was the result of the main profiles.
dmsq2cuf.jeff-new is the profile in use when this happened this morning. I added the '-new'.
dmsq2cuf.jeff is the profile from my backup

I can't imagine what would cause it to look like I just installed a fresh version of Seamonkey. Please let me know if I should be looking at something further down.
