When installing Mint, I took the gear path and set the installer to not reformat that partition, use ext4 as it was, and that the partition was /home. However, my previous naming must have been incompatible, because now I have the following directory structure:
>>kirby (this has my old home stuff)
>>>many folders and files

What is the best way to integrate the old me with the new me, particularly Firefox and Thunderbird files? Or alternatively what can I positively not overwrite?
