I've been running Thunderbird beta for some time, on one of my Macs. Presently at 101.0b3. It's fine, I don't have any bugs/issues, but I want to downgrade to release and keep my installation uniform.
Now, of course I've read many people do this -- they don't set up duplicate Profiles for it (guilty here).
But what I'm seeing is perhaps a need for some more portability. Namely, if someone has only IMAP accounts, would it be useful to enable export of accounts/credentials in a format that can be imported and is generally portable within the Thunderbird ecosystem?
I see there is an add-on, of unknown (to me) origin or quality -- but it only runs on an older version.
In my case, I have a handful of accounts and while I see you can individually export something from the accounts panel, I don't see any meaningful way to translate that to another version (ie: release) of Thunderbird. Granted, this is not a task that someone does every day (imagine??) but it's a thought.
I wonder, too, if there can be alternate mechanisms to store account information in a secure manner that can be portable -- ie: in the cloud, encrypted -- in a file, etc.
OK that went onto a tangent, sorry -- but as far as I can see, the only option I have is to install the release version of Thunderbird (my beta Profile backed up) and go through the tedium of manually adding accounts.
Am I missing something?
