I imported all my bookmarks from Internet Explorer 8 but not all of them came through. Then I exported the HTML file from IE and imported it into Firefox and all of them came through but got added onto the initial (partial) list. How do I remove the partial list of bookmarks so that I can avoid duplication ? Or how do I delete all the bookmarks from Firefox in one go so that I can import again from the IE HTML file  ?Thanks.

Hello guys, I'm a thunderbird fanatic and use it even at work managing 10+ accounts. Up to Thunderbird 68, all was super fine:

The massive profile with 60+ folder was well organized with a handful of incredible add-ons to: - color folders - customize color account background - manage folder sorting The workflow was smooth and very productive: the folder colored to my like, the new email received were visible at a glance in the related folder by simply browsing and detecting the different accent in the folder name, and so on.

I always loved updates and kept the auto update on... until yesterday when my 68 has been migrated automatically to 78 !

No one of the necessary add-ons works anymore! No one of those fantastic the developer is anymore interested in upgrading them (changes are too frequent, and need to invest too much time to upgrade them) The interface is to uniform, I cannot customize colors in the same efficient way.... If I want the same 60+ nested folder sorting, I need to rename all of them... When a folder receives a new email the accent color (sort of bold blue) is nearly same as that of a folder with unread email (bold black)... Oh my god, what a mess !

Since no add-ons are available to re arrange the profile like it was with Thunderbird 68, my only option is to roll-back to 68... and stay there until the necessary add-on will get back to 78 (if any).

Do you know how I can convert back my profile just upgraded to 78 back to 68 ???

Please Please Please, help me ! Pietro

I have Windows XP Professional English SP3 installed in an Oracle Virtual Machine. For some reason or another, Internet Explorer stopped browsing to pages having SSL (https). I went to several web pages on the internet. They said this and that, but I managed to narrow it down to the SSL part. I recently received an update to Oracle Virtual Box, so that can also be the culprit. I also have another XP Professional English SP3 virtual machine with no additional software installed besides antivirus software, and in that machine, I had installed a pretty fresh version of Mozilla Firefox, so I tested it, and there was no problem at all surfing, but Internet Explorer refused to display the web page. This is why I would like to have a link to the above mentioned version of Firefox, as you stated in another thread that that particular version was the last one to be supported by Windows XP.


Thanks in advance! Thomas J. Ekman SWEDEN

I know about the site where I can find the exact version I need for downgrade with, but can I just run the setup without saving any data... just like when upgrading?

Please answer my question and let me know how to downgrade 20 to 19.0.2...

Thank you very much!!!

I’m trying to run a program that requires silverlight and newer versions of Firefox don’t allow plug ins from silverlight. I have found a list of older versions of Firefox on Mozilla’s website but Once I click on a specific version several downloadable links pop up. Do I need to only download one link or several? Once I download the link do I have to move it to my applications or somewhere else to gain access to it?

I have a new computer and I had previously saved a backup of the files of my Firefox profile. I followed the steps in this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/back-and-restore-information-firefox-profiles but it didn't work, none of my settings or bookmarks are in place. The backup profile had a different name so I copied the contents and I used the default profile that was created instead of creating a new one. Why didn't it work? Does it matter that I'm using the same profile from the backup on a different new computer as well?

How Can I set up Thunderbird for multiple email addresses

I am using Eudora 7 to handle 6 email accounts on a Windows XP SP3 machine. I want to install Thunderbird on the same machine and import the email addresses. I have Eudora setup to store the data files for each email address in a different data directory. This allows me to have a different icon on the desktop for each email account. Clicking on an icon starts Eudora with the email address data stored in a specific directory.

What I don't know is how to have Thunderbird import the different email addresses from Eudora to Thunderbird and how to keep the individual email address data separate in Thunderbird.

Any help would be appreciated.

Restore old version of Firefox and profile

I was running just "regular" Firefox on my Windows laptop. Yesterday my help desk had me upgrade to Firefox Extended Support Release to install a corporate email security certificate. I did not know when I installed this version of Firefox that it would overwrite my existing browser, and when it did, I lost all of my add-ins, extensions, bookmarks, etc. I'm hoping to be able to restore my old profile with all of the existing data I had. If I have to "downgrade" to regular Firefox I think that's fine since I just needed the ESR to install the security cert and that's complete now.

I looked on the about:profiles page and I have two other profiles, default and june19 (I presume the latter is from June 2019?), but I don't know how to determine which one is the preferred one. When I clicked Launch profile in new browser, it instructed me to create a new profile to protect my information and I hesitated to do that because I'm trying to restore an old profile, not create a new one. In case you can't tell, I'm not an advanced software user, so give instructions like you would to a 5-year-old or your grandma... lol. Thanks in advance!

There is a web page on my visited log I can not get rid of. Deleting the history causes the web page to be access again, dismissing it also brings it right back. I can verify with wireshark that the access is being triggered by deleting the history (clicking "Delete History" for that web page causes a flurry of internet activity on the ipaddress of the page in question).

I tried to uninstall and do a fresh reinstall (check mark for removing old plugins and such checked), but the old web pages still show up on the fresh reinstall.

Short of reformatting my hard drive and starting from scratch, or giving up and going to Chrome, how can I get a clean install?

Thanks, bt
