Windows 7: Merge thunderbird profiles

28 Oct 2014   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium Edition (64-bit) Service Pack 1 (Build 7601)
Merge thunderbird profiles

Laptop died but I have access to the HD. I want to merge the Thunderbird profile from the dead PC's HD to my Desktop's Thunderbird.
However, these are the issues/questions:
I can copy the 'appdata/roaming/Thunderbird/profiles/ folder but if I paste it to the same folder in my Desktop PC it'll wipe out the current profile.
So, how can I/can I merge the two profiles?

Thunderbird For x64?
OK, so I'm trying to use Mozilla Thunderbird as my email application. The version 2.0 installer from their website is of course 32-bit only, which doesn't help me out much. I went to that Mozilla x64 site that was linked in the "Free 64-Bit software" thread... well, that thing shows up as...
