Help please on newsgroups list on my computer

Hi:

I've forgotten where Suse/Thunderbird stores my list of subscribed
newsgroups. I want to edit the order they appear in. Could someone
please help.

TIA

Hugh

grep uk.comp.os.linux `find ~/.mozilla-thunderbird/`

might be a good place to start.

"No such file or directory", it says.

Try ~/.mozilla-thunderbird/192s1isv.default/News/newsrc-nntp.motzarella.org

Replace 192slisv and newsrc-nntp.motzarella.org with whatever is in your
News directory.

Regards
Fabian
