lost address book downgraded from 115 to 102
Hi, I stupidly 'upgraded' from V102 to V115, which I immediately disliked. I managed to re-install V102, but it then said the profile was for a newer version. I had a backup from a few weeks ago, and copied all the top-level files over. So I got all my setup bacvk and all seemsed fine, but have just seen that my address book is messed up.
I had lots of important 'contact lists' (about 10), they have all disappeared. I only see "Outlook Express..." (imported ages ago) and "Collected Addresses", the main section, and the sub-lists are all missing, and I have lost years of addresses for my business.
I have the abook.sqlite backed up on 13th Sept, but can't open or use it to check what's in there. I tried importing, but got as 'fail'

Reverting to 115 may be an option, if that profile is still intact. Another possibility would be to exit TB and copy the backed-up abook.sqlite into the profile. 102 is dead for future updates, and once in 115, I suggest staying
When I updated from V38 to 74 last week, and then to v102, the address book was good with contact lists, map access etc but now at 115.4.3 while the contact e-mail is there, all actual street address have gone & when I insert an address. I can't find the map button. Interesting also that I had set under General Settings in TB V102 not do auto updates without advising me first Check for updates, but let me choose whether to install them
but it did it anyway & it still shows that just noticed this had been ticked
Use a background service to install updates
whether this overrode the first instruction - who knows?
Found the answer when updating to V102 "Get Map" feature missing from address book for physical addresses
so far, no fix looks like V102 has caused more problems.
so while I am in v115.4.3 what is the answer on finding what happened to actual street addresses please and will the Get Map button appear in an updated V115?
I found here https://addons.thunderbird.net/en-US/th ... rt=updated the addon for Get Map but after I downloaded the file. it would not open as it has not been verified
Try that again. I just did and it installed. From tools>addons search for 'get map'
Thanks I got it working & it only works in the Personal Address book so I have so work to do to update the list...
