Language change, import messages and contacts from folders.
I had a reinstall of Windows 10. All my Thunderbird messages and contacts are stored on a data disc (not on the system disc).
1. I installed Thunderbird in the same location it was previously. It has been installed in Polish (I use English in Windows). How can I change the language? Download a language pack? (att 1)
2. I changed locations of e-mail folders, they have been imported successfully, but I cannot import contacts from the previous installation (where are they located?) 2a. I cannot import Outlook / Windows Mail Win Vista contacts stored in .contact files in a folder.
3. Can I append messages in .eml format from my 2012 PC to my email folder? 3a. How to convert Thunderbird compressed data in the message folders to single .eml messages?

Here are the attachments that haven't been uploaded.
have a look at these two add-ons. The first imports and exports mail and second allows import and export of address books.
You get the language version you want here. (normally accessed from the system and languages link on the main download page) https://www.thunderbird.net/en-US/thunderbird/all/
The first add-on does not work, because ThBird still wants to import contacts from a program, not from a folder. ...or I cannot find it in the menu.
The second one (more functions) is an .xpi file. Where should I put it? Into 'extensions' folder?
The first one import mail.... That is what I said.
Then I suggest you read https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/installing-addon-thunderbird
Ok, the add-on "more functions" is active. I imported all mail from folders, but nothing changed in contacts.
The add-on is active only in the main menu, not in address book menu.
I tried to import contacts simpler. I Changed the location of Windows 'Contacts' folder. Now the target is the proper folder with contacts. Thunderbird did not see the change. The address book is empty. Have I missed something? How to tell Thunderbird where are the contacts?
