Looks nice. Are the grayed out options not supported yet? And what about migration of profiles (e.g. moz1.4 -> firebird)?

This isn't supported yet. Maybe next release (1.2).

It works very nice for me. I just have one question: when I only want to copy my preference and address book from office PC to my home PC, I ended up with my email accounts lost in my home PC. How to avoid such a problem? (I am using Mozilla 1.4.1RC at both computer).

This should be part of the main Mozilla tree.

Sure, in the long run, something like this should be added to Mozilla. However, it takes time and alot of testing to verify that a given addon works right in various situations. Don't expect it to happen any time soon.

is there any way to make it as an extension? Becuase platform dependancy kills it.
