Bonjour

Mon anglais est loin d'être formidable, mais je tente... Et même si ma question est finalement compréhensible, une réponse en français serait bienvenue ;-). Merci.

I just changed my laptop, and reinstalled Thunderbird on the new one. I'd like now to migrate my contacts list from my former computer to the new one. How can I manage this ? I found on Thunderbird website how to migrate profile, but it didn't work... Many thanks in advance for your answer, that I'm looking forward to reading.

Best regards Paul GRIFFET

Hello, I always download mp3 files inside webs using "Save as" and ".mp3" method. Sometimes I had to explicitly save filename with ".mp3" extension to force audio download. However trying to download an audio no matter what format I write in file always download only webpage as .html never as .mp3. Looking at sourcecode (image attached) I found a detail containing "chrome" in webpage. Later, I tried downloading with Chromium at it worked properly. Does anyone know how to download this from Firefox?

Thanks in advance for your help. P.D. I am using Firefox 84.0.2 (64-bit) for Ubuntu canonical - 1.0.

Quite annoyed with the newest update. They removed the 'paper plane' quick send to device button, removed multiple add-ons including the reader button feature. I'm just not thrilled with this new update. There are certainly upgrades under the surface, but some of those former well made functions have been blindsided or replaced with something that is just not as good. Unpleased with the result and the loss of that usability, for myself.

Hello this is Guenther, Today on November 23rd, 2020 I migrated my installation of Thunderbird 78.5.0 (64-Bit) from the PC Windows 10 to my laptop also Windows 10. To do this, I installed Thunderbird on the laptop and then replaced the new profile folder with a copy of my old original profile folder. The old profile got the new name. After entering Thunderbird, all directories and email were there.

But when I closed Thunderbird and reopened it, Thunderbird crashed. What can I do to secure my e-mails in the long term and use them on a new computer? Who can help me? Thank you!

nonfunctional dropdown elements in under "Thunderbird" menu after upgrading from 60 to 68 mac

Upgraded from v.60.9.1 to 68.12.1 finally. Everything works, except nothing happens when selecting any of the dropdown menu items under the "Thunderbird" entry at the top left. This is the one that offers "About Thunderbird", "Preferences", "Quit Thunderbird". (see image) None of these work - all the other dropdown elements under "File", "Edit" etc. work fine. Had to close the program by the keyboard shortcut, but could not see the Preferences at all. Is this a known issue? Mac OS 10.10.5, which I know is old, but v68 is supposed to be compatible. Restarted computer but no difference. Went back to v60.9.1 and the former profile and that works as before. Advice?? Thanks.

Hi, I have just installed Thunderbird on a new installation of Windows 10. Windows 10 crashed last Friday and was unrecoverable. I have been able to recover all the files off the Windows partition and saved the whole partition on an external hard drive through Linux. During the weekend I have still been downloading emails on Linux using thunderbird. I have copied the profile on Linux (that contain a weekends worth of messages) to the same external hard drive. My problem now is how do merge all these sets of messages together? 1/ The original profile has LOTS of local folders, message filters with loads of critical emails. All of these ar backed up on the external drive. I dont know which files all the local folders and messages are contained in. I dont mind moving folders one at a time if needed. 2/ The emails downloaded whilst I was using linux has about 40 ish emails. Everything is in one inbox. 3/ The emails I downloaded today are likewise all in one inbox. I've tried reading lots on how to move, create profiles, etc. I basically would like to recreate all the original local folders and message rules in my current fresh installation of Thunderbird. My current fresh installation is all the time downloading new messages and I'd like to add in the messages from my temporary linux instaaltion of thunderbird over the weekend. I can post images of directories or any other information that can be of assistance. Just want to break throught some of the confusion. At least I've managed to sort out my Firefox profile. Thanks.

David.

I have a new W/10 PC. I downloaded and installed the latest version of FF 84.0.2 (64-bit) on the new PC.

Once I got it installed on the new PC, I went to the old PC and copied from users/myname/appdata/roaming/Mozilla (which I think is 32-bit) and used that file to replace the MOZILLA in the similar location on the new PC.

However, I started getting error messages about the profiles on the new system were inconsistent with the old system. So consequently, on my NEW PC, I was not able to transfer the bookmarks, profile, etc from the old to the new.

How can I successfully transfer my profiles and other FF info from the old (32-bit) to the new (64-bit)?

In the Profile folder I have the two folders 'a0xgpvl8.default-release' and 'zio2d614.default'. On my old computer I made a backup of my profile 'lccgh133.default' where all my mailfolders are. How do I get the old mailfolders to my new computer?

I hope this was the correct Topic, due to the "migration" section. Basically I set up a new PC for my mom, did a clean installation and copied over her stuff and reinstalled her applications. Most of her email is in Gmail, so the mail itself was not a problem, however all her Address Book was in Thunderbird, not synced with anything ( we have remedied that using the CardBook extension now ). I've got the old Thunderbird profile backed up, so I copied over the old abook.sqlite, abook.mab.old, abook.mab.bak, to her new Profile, then restarted and relaunched Thunderbird. This got me all her Personal Address Book, but not her Collected Addresses. Are those stored in a separate file?

The old PC is gone, we cannot Export anything.

Help, please! After a computer tech worked on my machine I've been unable to use FF. I have no trouble downloading a file, but when I click on "Run" I get this error message: "Can not create temp folder archive." I can't get beyond that. This may be related to 7-Zip, because that program always pops up with the error message. What should I do?
