The profile folder on the new installation is to be replaced with that from the old. So far so good, I've copied the profile folder from Windows and now want to exchange it for the profile folder on the new Ubuntu computer. Problem is that this is the very latest Ubuntu version (only a few weeks old) and there IS no profiles folder in Firefox!

What there is, is a profiles.ini file but I am reluctant to put it in there because it does not appear to have anything to do with the contents of the ex-windows profile folder.

There is an option to create a new folder but I'm not at all sure what this would do.

Hope you can help

Blessed be Karma

I have been using TB for many years, but with the latest update to version 78 I cannot connect my Google contact list as the addon I used is not longer compatible. The suggestions I have read about is to use TBSync, which I have installed, but I can't get it to connect to my Google account. Each time I try autodiscover I get a message saying it has failed. I tried to manually enter the server name, but that wouldn't work either.

I can't find any support instructions in the Add In web site or on the Mozilla support site. Can anyone help?

Can I revert to an earlier version of Thunderbird?

Merry Christmas Everyone. I have been using thunderbird for email with windows 7 for several years, and it does exactly what I need. One thing I definitely need is my own folders for different incoming email. No problem with windows 7 but I cannot find how to make them with windows 11 (old laptop gave up - had to buy new one). Right click on existing default folders or email name does not offer the option. All folders is ticked, as is folder pane. Hope you can help. Thanks

After upgrading Thunderbird from v68 to v78 over the weekend, everything looked fine, but then I realized some emails display badly with Windows 10 running in Dark mode. Changing the Windows settings to display apps in Light mode doesn't help (and make other parts of Windows Light instead of Dark mode).

What I'm trying to find in about:config is a flag to tell Thunderbird to run in Light mode as I can't see many of my emails. I can highlight the body, but that's just a lame workaround.

First image show how the text is unreadable because Thunderbird only changed the background layout, but not the text; Image on the right I highlighted the whole email so I could read the text.

I saw other suggestions that either require meddling with some .css file quite heavily, or installing some add-on that doesn't fix the problem.

We just need a configuration flag to prevent Thunderbird from using the Windows Dark Mode (or more generic, one that doesn't follow the Windows Light or Dark mode on us).

Thank you developers.

I have read probably 100 of your help topics and none of them seem to address my topic in plain english. I have used Thunderbird for years on a windows computer (currently windows 10, Tbird Ver 78.6.0) and I am trying to move my profile from my windows computer to a new Mac running Big Sur Ver 11.1. Thunderbird (for some unknown reason) actually created 4 different profiles on my windows machine (two under: users/alan/AppData/Local, and the same two profiles under users/alan/AppData/roaming) but I have figured out which profile that Thunderbird is using based upon the help/troubleshooting/profile folder/open folder (which happens to be one of the ones located under: users/alan/AppData/roaming) and it is 13.9GB. I copied this folder (and all included files) to a jump drive so that I could move it to my new Mac.

  I am new to Apple and know nothing about their operating system.  I downloaded Thunderbird from the Mozilla website and installed it according to their directions.  I finally found the default profile on my Mac that was created when I installed Thunderbird and I deleted it.  I copied my existing windows profile to the same location.  Now when I start Thunderbird I am greeted with a message that states: "Your Thunderbird profile cannot be loaded.  It may be missing or inaccessible."
  Obviously I have done something wrong.  Please direct me how to correct my problem -- it seems like this should be pretty simple, but I am lost.
  Thank you very much!!

I got a message from yahoo mail saying they will no longer support current sign in methods. They give instructions for how to update thunderbird for the new settings, which basically involves deleting the old yahoo account and setting up a new one. Following those instructions results in all of my mailboxes and messages being deleted -- what a brilliant solution! I have years of messages I don't want to lose. Fortunately I had a backup of my .thunderbird directory (this is Linux, thunderbird v. 68.11.0)

See here for how NOT to do this "upgrade": https://help.yahoo.com/kb/new-mail-for-desktop/SLN27791.html?impressions=true Don't follow those instructions or you will lose all of your messages and mailboxes.

So, is there a way I can delete and re-install the account settings using the automatic features yahoo wants, without losing everything?

I'm trying to import my saved logins and passwords from Chrome to Firefox. When to try to do this I get prompted to create a Primary Password. Whenever I try to do this, I get a message saying, "Unable to set Primary Password." I also can't cancel out of this or switch to another tab--I have to ctrl-alt-del and close Firefox to get out of it. I also can't create a Primary Password through the options menu. Anytime I try to set a primary password it just says "Unable to change Primary Password."

I got a new Lenovo Laptop and cant get Firefox to load a webpage. Here's what happens and what I've done 1. I install Firefox and during install get error below, VCRUNTIME140_1.dll Not Found. I then click OK and Firefox Installs but when I load it no webpages will come up just a black screen no indications it is even trying to load the page, no error message. It does nothing. Cant even open Google.com 2. I looked in MS forums and they say to install Visual C++. Did every x86 and X64 version I could find. Still have the problem even after uninstalling Firefox and reboot. 3 Have McAfee, and took Firefox off the Safe list then put it back on. 4. Went to try and find the file but can't on a reputable website. So I looked for this file on my Dell Laptop and Asus Desktop. Both have Firefox installed and it works fine. Get this, NONE of my other two computers have that exact file name anywhere. VCRUNTIME140_1.DLL! They have 140.DLL and a few other 140.dll with different variation but no 140_1.dll? So how does Firefox run on 2 other computers without this DLL but not on this new one? They are all Windows 10 Would appreciate any help. Seems to be a Firefox or Lenovo Issue just not sure. If anyone know how to get the DLL from MS let me know.

Hallo, nach einem Update von Thunderbird kam durchgehend die Meldung, dass zum Abschluss des Updates der Computer neu gestartet soll. Da dies keine Änderung erbrachte, löschte ich Thunderbird aus dem Verzeichnis und kopierte den Ordner zur Sicherung. In den Ordnern zu den Profilen (.../Local/Thunderbird/Profiles) enthalten die beiden vorhandenen Profile leider keine relevanten Dateien. Nach der erneuten Installation von Thunderbird wurde auch ein neues Profil erstellt ( mit Zusatz: default). Für mich ergibt sich die Frage, wo ich mein Adressbuch sowie einige meiner Archive finden kann (ein Archiv wird angezeigt). Sofern ich die nicht auf dem Server sondern lokal abgelegt haben sollte, gibt es ein spezielles Suchkriterium dafür, kann ich ggf. neue Dateien in Thunderbird mit denen aus der Sicherung überschreiben? Schon mal vielen Dank für die Hilfe!

Gruß Thomas

Hi. Previously I installed Firefox on Ubuntu with command `sudo apt install firefox`. I'm using Firefox 88.0 for Ubuntu. I want to update it to the latest version. When I try following commands: `sudo apt update` `sudo apt install firefox`

It says "firefox is already the newest version (88.0+build2-0ubuntu0.20.04.1)." But I know version 89 and 90 are released.

I attached "About Firefox" window. There is no update button.

Alright, basically I backed up my PC before I wiped it. Then decided to move from chrome to firefox. But there is an issue, I can't migrate my passwords because google chrome will not read my old LOGIN DATA file and refuses to create a CSV either. So basically I can't import about a decade worth of passwords into firefox because of a flaw in chrome's design, fantastic.

So I thought, well, surely if there are program that let you read SQL files (such as the LOGIN DATA file) if you have the password, firefox must be able to do this to right? Well no. Apparently not.

I am not sure if this is the correct place to formally request a QoL feature but I would really, REALLY, like to be able to import my passwords directly from chrome's LOGIN DATA file, I have the master password.

It was my mistake to back up my files thinking that would be enough, I should have known better and double checked if chrome could not read its own native files. But now im screwed. Help. Please.

Hi,

I have an old email account with the address j*****@netcabo.pt that some years was migrated to Microsoft Outlook by the Portuguese ISP. I can access this account on the webmail and on the Mail App from Windows 10, but I can’t login in Thunderbird. I’m following the server configurations that are available on https://outlook.live.com/mail/0/options/mail/accounts, namely

IMAP Server name: outlook.office365.com Port: 993 Encryption method: TLS

SMTP Server name: smtp.office365.com Port: 587 Encryption method: STARTTLS

I’m choosing OAuth2 as “authentication method”. The problem is that when the Microsoft login windows appears, it doesn’t recognize the email j*****@netcabo.pt, it says it must be a wrong address and I should change it or else to contact the administrator (see the figure). I’m sending a picture in attachment. It seems a bug on the OAuth2 app.

Thanks for your help.

Is this really a regional restriction, or an error because the version is not compatible with the Mac M1 OS?

Since updating to the 'new look' TB I have an issue with a blurry screen. When you select an Account from the left side of the screen at the top of the folders, the information is blurred as you can see from the attached screenshot.

The messages in the folders are all clearly displayed and other areas of display don't have any problems, it is only since updating to the 'new' folder look that appears to have created this blurry image.

Someone suggested that I adjust the Windows ClearType settings which I did, but that didn't make any difference and the problem still exists. I have also just updated to the new 78.1.0 version today (1st August) but I still have the same blurry problem.

Any suggections or should this be logged as a bug ?
