I tried to upgrade from Thunderbird 60.8.0 to Thunderbird 68.0 (both 32-bit), but I lost my options and account(s) settings.

Posted

In Thunderbird 68.0 it seems that I would have to set all my email accounts manually. (I have 10 email accounts). Hence, I come back to Thunderbird 60.8.0. The question is how to install Thunderbird 68.0 preserving my options and accounts settings. I am using Windows 10 Pro 1903 64-bit, but 32-bit Thunderbird.

Thank you very much for your messages. I found the following answer at https://www.thunderbird.net/en-US/thunderbird/68.0/releasenotes/ "Thunderbird version 68.0 is only offered as direct download from thunderbird.net and not as upgrade from Thunderbird version 60 or earlier. A future version 68.1 will provide updates from earlier versions." Hence I will wait for Thunderbird version 68.1.

Hello there Francesco Bernis

Move Thunderbird data to a new Thunderbird.

https://support.mozilla.org/ur/products/thunderbird/install-migrate-and-update/copy-your-personal-information-one-thunderbird-another

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/moving-thunderbird-data-to-a-new-computer

The release notes list new features, changes, and fixes. One of the major differences to Thunderbird 60.x is that add-ons may only work if the add-on developers have adapted them. Any add-on that has not been adapted will be disabled when you run Thunderbird 68.0.

!!(If the Thunderbird team would not have done anything at all, only WebExtensions would be supported by Thunderbird 68.0. All classic extensions would not work anymore and there would have been nothing that users could do to change that.)!!

Let me hear from you.

I don't see how instructions for moving is helpful.

Start Thunderbird with -P option - is your (production) default profile properly shown?

 thunderbird.exe -P
