Hi,

Under,

  • Linux (Manjaro XFCE)
  • Thunderbird78.8
  • Account: hotmail

How can set on which folder, actually other partition and folder than OS system, the Thunderbird store the emails?

From a fresh install, 1/ I started Thunderbird, 2/ set my hotmail account and Thunderbird started downloading the messages and creating reproducing my email tree structure. 3/ Without waiting the full download I closed TB

4/ I checked .thunderbird folder I see "profiles.ini" and "installs.ini" files as well as 2 folders <random_string>.default <random_string>.default-release

5/ In the profiles.ini I do see not see a relationship with my hotmail.

6/ under <random_string>.default-release/ImapMail/outlook.office365.com/ I see my hotmail account folder structure

7/ I cut & paste the <random_string>.default-release to the new partition (non OS)

The initial profiles.ini is [Profile1] Name=default IsRelative=1 Path=7xaim9be.default Default=1

[Profile0] Name=default-release IsRelative=1 Path=eatrfwpe.default-release

[General] StartWithLastProfile=1 Version=2

[InstallFDC34C9F024745EB] Default=eatrfwpe.default-release Locked=1


The modified one [Profile1] Name=default IsRelative=1 Path=7xaim9be.default Default=1

[Profile0] Name=default-release IsRelative=1 Path=run/media/phx/MMedia/eatrfwpe.default-release

[General] StartWithLastProfile=0 Version=2

[InstallFDC34C9F024745EB] Default=run/media/phx/MMedia/eatrfwpe.default-release Locked=1

I also modified installs.in as such [FDC34C9F024745EB] Default=run/media/phx/MMedia/eatrfwpe.default-release Locked=1

I start TB, it request if I start with the "default-release" profile which I do, finally it prompts "Your Thunderbird profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible"

A year ago I asked how to stop mozmsgs files being created. The answer worked. I have reinstalled Thinderbird in a new win 10 machine and these mozmsgs are created.

I followed the advice from the previous reply, which was to untick the windows search box, but that does not work.

I have been using ff on Android for years. Now maybe one year i have not been able to find my downloads ANYWHERE on the phone. Downloads also seems to take for ages to complete. And when it completes it may be i can open it once by clickin the notification its ready, but after that it dissapears.

I have read some people have been having this issue for years also. I think its something what ff wont fix. Do i need to change the the browser just for this idiotic reason?
