I was trying to instal Posteo.net on thunderbird and I kept on getting an error message saying that i had put in the wrong password. I changed the password on Posteo and still got the same message. I reinstalled thunderbird and got the same. Originally it was alright because I managed to download some emails from Posteo but then things went wrong and I could no longer connect to it.

I seem to be connecting to my incoming mail server, but I'm not asked for my password. I haven't been able to receive incoming email on that computer since I updated to new version of Thunderbird. My outgoing mail is working fine. It's on a different server. My release notes says "Message list is not focused at startup."

Working from home and using my own computer to send emails on thunderbird. I need to get the work computer to hold a copy of the emails I have sent. I've sent work an email containing one day's sent emails. I though I could simply unzip the emails and put them into my sent folder at work. But when I look at the work profile it isn't obvious that any existing emails sent from the work computer are in a sent folder (I've sent 3 test email from work and can see them in thunderbird's sent box but not when I open the thunderbird [profile in file explorer). Am I coming at this from the wrong angle or am I trying to do the impossible? Help please. Jools

I tried to change some things in about:config which resulted in websites not working properly and reverting the changes wouldn't fix it, so I had to do a refresh of Firefox. The sites work like they used to now.

I'm still confused about Firefox Sync's functionality because when I set it up to sync my tabs it never wants to do it, but immediately after the refresh it downloaded all of my Add-ons right away, which was nice to see. However, my settings/options from those Add-ons are missing, like my uBlock filter lists or various Tampermonkey user scripts.

Is there any way I could recover the Add-on settings from the profile backup which the refresh created on my Desktop? There's a folder called browser-extension-data with some other folders inside, but they're all empty. I tried looking for it myself but couldn't find solutions. I also have a complete profile backup I manually made just before I the Refresh as a safety measure if needed. Thank you very much..!

I am running Thunderbird 78.5.0 on Windows 10. I am trying to copy a subset of my local folders to Outlook 365, but all the software I can find insists on looking for files of type MBOX. However, my profile contains no MBOX files. There are directories and subdirectories of type "sbd", and pairs of files of type "msf" and no filetype. Has anyone solved this problem?

Why would an addon need full unrestricted access to my computer, or even full unrestricted access to Thunderbird for that matter?

Does the Thunderbird team do any vetting of addons? Maybe they had that kind of access before, but in 78 a popup displays saying what kind of access will be used when installing it from an .xpi file.

This came up when installing the Send Later addon for 78.

HI all.

I have been using Thunderbird successfully for a long time and have quite a substantial amount of stored info in the 'profile'.

My old Win 10 PC died so I was unable to migrate my Thunderbird service to my new Win 10 PC via the method shown in Help topics on this site. But, I did always back up what I thought was my 'profile folder'. The one that has the title format xxxxxxxxx.default. Reading the instructions in the Help article, I realise that I really needed to back up the entire 'Thunderbird' folder if I was to use it later for migration.

I am where I am, so is there any way I can recover any data from my old xxxxxxxx.default folder such as Emails/Contacts/Local Folders etc?

Thanks for reading

First post,so forgive any incorrectitudes!

Imported a large collection of messages from Windows Live Mail 11 into Thunderbird, where I had already set up newsgroups. Created a new folder "D" into Local Folders and imported there, but two issues:

- folder "D" shows (right-click, properties) like a newsgroup - it has General information and Retention Policy tabs. Maybe this is OK?

- when replying to a message it appears to be using the wrong account. In the From line it shows:

 David J Taylor <my-email> forums.embarcadero.com (in italics)

and a Newsgroup line (blank).

whereas it I create a new e-mail using Write, the From shows:

 David J Taylor <my-email>  my-email (in italics)

and no Newsgroup line. I don't understand whether this is to do with the e-mail properties (the one I'm replying to) or whether it's a property of the folder tree I created. I have searched for a solution but not found one. Is there a way to fix this, please?

Thanks, David

Move thunderbird profile from one partition C with all apps to another partition Y with all files/data

I'm stumped. Using this URL https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profiles-where-thunderbird-stores-user-data#w_moving-a-profile I've backed up files to an external drive. Then followed the instructions "Restoring to a different location" which in my case is another partition on the same hard drive. It just does not work.

I create a new folder, Thunderbird, and a new profile in it on Y using the link in the instructions @ 2. Use the Thunderbird Profile Manager to create a new profile in your desired location by ... Press Windows Key +R on the keyboard to open the Run dialog. Then enter "thunderbird.exe -p" and click OK. exit the Profile Manager ...

Profile created and I see the file in Thunderbird folder on Y drive, path Y\Jim\Thunderbird\t55nr5v1.jim-combined. Profile manager sees default profile name on c partition and new profile on y partition. Try to launch Thunderbird with jim-combined profile. I deselect use selected profile at startup and start.

First time no start up-no error messages. Second dbl click it starts to default on c partition. A t55nr5v1.jim-combined folder has been created in the Y partition but at the root folder, Jim, and not in the Thunderbird folder that was selected when creating the new profile-this folder is MT.

I re-open the profile manager as above, thunderbird.exe -p, and the new profile created is no where to be found. I start the program from here and default on C opens.

Close program, move t55nr5v1.jim-combined, which has a file times.json in, in to the Thunderbird folder as originally set up and open profile mgr. Nothing.

I do not think Thunderbird can work on a drive that is partitioned? If it can can someone tell me how. I've lost hours and my C partition is out of space and the 2+ GB of files needs to move.

I tried another section that was on this page a few days ago but is now gone that talked about editing the the profile.int. Tried all the iterations of // or \\ absolute to relative paths, changing to 1 to 0 all w/o any luck.

This page, https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/moving-thunderbird-data-to-a-new-computer, was much more helpful at showing what going up 3 levels means. The way the help page I'm using is written it very unclear to me.

Any help would be appreciated -- jim

It would be nice if you could alert us end users that this will/might happen before we hit the 'update' button. Might save a lot of heartache & frustration. Had I known about this, I never would have updated.

So Im trying to download a 1.19GB file and get 300mb/s ethernet speed using speedtest.net/ Now normally from my experience its never taken longer that 10 sec to Download such a file. Although since today, either Firefox or my pc has decided to limit download speed to 90kb/s which means this is going to take 3h or so to download. I use Windows 10, don't have a metered plan enabled or any other wifi/ethernet speed limiting things, and no third party security software. Anyone have any ideas why this could be happening? Many thanks in advance

I have been trying to install Firefox on a Windows computer running Windows 10 Pro. I have two users on the computer. I have installed Firefox successfully on the main user but every time I try to install for the second user, it does not install. it says it failed and leaves a strange icon on the desktop which, when I click, it deletes the file. I am not sure why. I have installed the same on 11 other computers with two users and no problem with those ones.
