Hi,

My computer was on during the week-end and when I came back home I noticed we had a couple of power outages. Computer restarted automatically (Win 10 22h2) and when I launched Firefox, it started as brand new with all my addons gone and none of the previous session restored (I had 4 Firefox browsers opened with each 20+ tabs opened).

I have tried looking at C:\Users\MYUSER\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles but found nothing of interest. Where is everything and how can I restore everything I had ?

I even tried Troubleshooting mode and downgrading to a former version of Firefox (126.0.1 64 bits).

Thanks,

Still have all the files just a new user profile and the old one is gone?

For a week or better I have been unable to download anything through my Firefox browser, I have refreshed and uninstalled Firefox (I had to reinstall through another browser) in an attempt to fix this issue to no avail. I cannot download from verified sites, nor am I able to download Firefox's own extensions or themes (when I attempt I get an error telling me to check my connection, screenshot included).

I would like to be able to use Firefox normally again, with the ability to download files and install my extensions restored.

Hi, hope someone can help please

By mistake I set up my 89 year old aunties TB using a Beta version. All of her emails are in that profile. I then installed the stable version but I'm told that the stable version is an older versions and can not import from the Beta.

Specifically the Beta version is 127.0b4 (64-bit) and the stable vesrion is 115.11.1 (64-bit).

Is there any way to recover the emails (and if possible the settings) from the Beta profile to the stable release

Thanks in anticipation

I've been using Thunderbird for years with no issues but suddenly this week it froze and although I could send e-mails from my Mac (running on Sonoma 14.5) I couldn't receive any. There was no message error, just nothing happened: it was frozen. So I finally opted to disinstall and then reinstall Thunderbird and now have incoming messages again but everything else I had: all my tags, e-mails older than a day ago, my address book have all gone. I've tried doing "import from profile "default" then choosing to import accounts and settings, address books, and mail messages but just get a message that "import failed unexpectedly, more information may be available in the Error Console" but I've no clue how to find the Error Console in question. Can anyone walk me through how to fix this issue and recuperate my old Thunderbird account without using all sorts of technical terms? I'm not IT-fluent! Many thanks.

Hi folks,

I'd like to obtain some clarity on provenance aspects of Firefox released as a Flatpak.

I see in this article that one of the options is to use flatpak package: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/install-firefox-linux

Is this article produced / reviewed by mozilla? Is flatpak an officially trusted, backed by mozilla, means of installing firefox on a system?

On flathub one can observe the "Verified" seal which indicates that such package is developed and maintained by original package developers (in case Mozilla). One can also observe in multiple forums here and there that mozilla is the one that builds and maintain this package.

Though a seal is nice, and users opinions are ok, it would be good to have artifacts that would evidence better this relationship. Also, would be good to have this officially stated in mozilla's website, under "Download options and other languages" section, something like "you can also safely install firefox through the flatpak package available on flathub which is developed / maintained / signed by mozilla itself".

Or maybe all of this information is around and i am just not able to link it together.

Thanks

I get the infamous "Unable to connect to your IMAP server. You may have exceeded the maximum number of connections" error in Thunderbird. I just moved to a new Windows 11 laptop but have signed-off the old unit and old phones, leaving just two devices in Google / Security. Obviously, I have reduced the IMAP connections to 1 on the PC. Still, I cannot get emails on this new PC; before reducing the devices, I could get emails on the old PC, the new phone, an iPhone, and an old phone. Turning off the fire wall does not help. I have done many variations of uninstalls / reinstalls on likely combinations of devices. I won't repeat those here but the net outcome seems to be: uninstalled / reinstalled Thunderbird - no effect

shut down new computer and fired up old computer and Thunderbird retrieved new messages immediately

downloaded and installed eM Client - immediately connected and retrieved new messages

downloaded and installed MailBird - immediately connected and retrieved new messages

started Thunderbird and received the too many message.

I just finished a round of installing / reinstalling Thunderbird but with all the AppData/Thunderbird/ folders / profiles deleted. The Wizard failed to identify the server information, which I supplied based on the three sets of working parameters (Tbird, eM, MailBird) but the error this time was a could not connect due to the Username and Password not agreeing.

I don't want to give up Thunderbird but I am out of patience. Please advise if there is some hope for a software fix. I have wasted too much time on this already pursuing a universe of possibilities. Thanks, Don
