Where would Thunderbird store the address book I have changed the OS and have a backup of the old OS but for the life of me can not find all my addresses or old emails

Docs and settings/ user account name/application data/thunderbird/profiles

#Mozbackup would have saved you all this grief however you may find what you're looking for here;
Docs and settings/
user account name/application data/Mozilla/profiles and look for folder ending slt.

Ok problem is Old OS is Vista new is Windows7 and the file lay out is a little different. don't have doc and settings or application data. I think trying to find out what the files are is my biggest problem. cheers

Should find them with a search for 'profiles' replace the 'default profile from the new instalation with the old default folder, all your old mail boxes and contents will travel, not sure if contacts are included, bookmarks reside in firefox profiles, emails resdie in thunderbird profiles

Once you have the old emails you can rebuild most of your contacts and addresses from them
