6 months ago I was given advice on how - manually - to save/backup/copy a profile, and how to recover/copy back the said profile during a windows version upgrade. Either the advice was incomplete, or it just didn't work, and altho I tried it several times it was a disaster. The only way back was to laboriously copy the profile details from another unaffected PC to the affected one. Furious, a c**kup of the 1st order.

Tonite I've read the article on profile manager, and that old fury returned, and this post is the result. The article just doesn't cover this most basic of profile actions - backup and recovery. The best it can do is refer to the way the firefox browser works, but it's still manual. And who wants to be told to refer to a browser when they are concerned with a mail program???

But I've noted and used several times the way the Thunderbird address books work; export and import from a menu option. A profile may be a tad more complex, but the files clearly exist so "menuing it" removes manual actions with it are hazardous to the desired end result and ultimately to the reputation of the product. Why cannot the simple action of backup and restore to safeguard a profile and re-use it on a new install if necessary follow the same process? - On the 'old' program, click menu backup/export profile, select a folder, Ok. - When new install is up, click menu recover/import profile, select folder where it is, choose apply, OK If it necessarily involves a re-start after a new profile is applied, so what is new?? This way there's no manual interpretation involved, just click and use a navigation panel, OK.

I have installed thunderbird so I can get rid of outlook. It has been a ridiculously complex endeavor from the beginning. I had to uninstall and reinstall 3 times before I finally got the calendar to function. Now I cannot do a simple thing like get my address book from outlook into thunderbird. I can find no mab files in the thunderbird profiles (and yes, hidden files is turned on). I have my outlook contacts in an excel sheet, but I cannot copy and paste the list into thunderbird. If I do a new list in thunderbird, the column from excel all pastes into the first line of the new list separated by commas. How do I get each address to paste to the next line in the new list?

Thunderbird is downloading 3 copies of each email from the POP server.

When inspecting the headers, each of the copies has a different X-Account-Key value, one of which is correct and corresponds to the account being accessed, the other 2 belong to different accounts and yet down a copy of the message intended for the correct account

So checking an email for account11 is downloaded 3 times, once for account 11, once for account 6, and once for account 17 !! Account details from prefs below

Acct# identity 11 george@domain1 (also default account) 6 george@domain2 17 george@domain3

Very strange....

Can anybody help?

Took me a long time to find where to post this message.

I have Windows 8.1 latest version. The wifi here has been mostly down so I don't know when this problem actually started. One day it was fine and the next time I could get on everything was gone. I don't know when it updated itself but I sure wish it hadn't.

I am a 72 year old who can do a few things on the computer but I am definitely NOT a tech person and most of the replies on the posts recounting similar problems made my eyes cross and my head spin. I tried the first "solution" by copy/paste the 32 bit then the 64 bit addresses above into the Start - Search programs space and what I got with the 64 bit is in the attached file. I don't know what to do. PLEASE, I need answers in step by step increments that work. Thank you, Bernadine

When I try to login to my Edward Jones account on my PC, I enter my ID and Password and there's a popup that they need to text me a security code. When I click on "text me", I receive an error message and nothing happens. I can access my account via Internet Explorer (which doesn't ask for a security code). I can access my account on my iphone. I called Edward Jones and they said it was a Firefox issue. I have Windows 10. Anyone know how to fix this issue? I'm pretty tech-challenged, so if you have suggestions, I hope I understand!! :) Thanks!!

When i try to look at an image on firefox in it's own tab so i can see it bigger, it instead opts to download it instead of just showing it in the tab itself. This is annoying as I don't want to have to make a whole folder just for images that i've seen once and then never look at again. is there an option i might have chosen at some point that enables this? i'm not too sure. please help if someone is able to.

"We're sorry Firefox had a problem and crashed - same fleeting pop-up every time I close down the computer

I use Xubuntu OS and installed Firefox from there many 4 months ago on this my new laptop, from Ubuntu repos. I now do not know what version it was.

About a month ago I noticed that every time I closed down the computer I saw a flashing image of what appeared to be a message from Firefox. It disappeared before I could read what it was about.

I uninstalled Firefox totally yesterday by purging the system, deleting the folders/files in /etc and /usr relating to it. I downloaded it from repos and installed it again However, the flashing image still appears every time I close down.

I decided to video the close down to pause it and see what this message was about. It was as I said in the subject above. I found two crash reports in about:crashes and have submitted them.

Please tell me how to stop this repeating message.

Also, when uninstalling Firefox I saved the logins and passwords but was unable to use the resulting csv to recover them. Is there a better way than manually?

Hi everyone, thank you for helping.

Just a quick question, the problem originated when one of my emails sent to a specific person in my contact list doesn't copy into sent folder. Just 1, all else is ok.

I tried creating a 'sent new' folder. Emails to that person now copies ok. However, now TB randomly chooses where to send the sent messages which makes searches quite hard.

Please see captured picture for reference.

Thank you again & stay safe everyone.

So I was using a vert old Thunderbird, probably version 50-something, and have an app that sends email via MAPI that ends up going through Thunderbird and was working just fine.

Life is good.

Then I upgraded to version 60-something and then jumped to the newest of the new.

Now when my app sends an eMail I still get the warning from Thunderbird that another app is trying to send email but when I click Yes for allow this - the email never goes out/through.

Thoughts anyone?

I have a my pictures file on my desktop. with over 8000 photos when I send it to desktop as a short cut and then send to Thunderbird mail recipient it opens fine then when I try to say it to the desktop from Thunderbird all I get is a white box and it will not open in desks top. not sure if the pictures file is corrupt or if for some reason Thunderbird does not save shortcuts of photos to desk top. it used to before the 68.11.0 version. i always worked before when i tried. I have tried different photo viewers ifran microsoft photos and windows photo viewer my default for windows 10. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Thunderbird but it will not send the photo to the desktop

what is  odd is that some  work some do not  not sure if  the pictures file is corrupt or the photos them selves are.  Yet if i  send a picture from  my pictures folder to the desktop it  does open
