I received a message to upgrade Firefox on my 2011 iMac. When I tried to do that I was told that it could not be installed. Also happening is that I get an error message "Secure Connection Failed" when I try to access some sites (but not all) with Firefox. I can access these sites with Safari.

Has my 2011 computer (like yours truly!) reached a point where it can no longer be upgraded? Any help/insight would be appreciated!

I don't know what happened. I was looking at all the settings, to see why messages I deleted from the server (from my phone) were still coming to Thunderbird. (OK, so that's a different problem). I must have changed something, and now my emails stopped coming into my Local Folders - Inbox. They are now coming into a new Inbox which appears directly under the account, pop.verizon.net.

To see what was happening, I went into Server Settings - Message Storage - Advanced then I try to change it to Inbox for Local Folders, but it asks me ominously if I want to "Defer Account?" so I'm afraid to say yes.

How do I get everything back in the Local Folders?

Thank you for any insight!

I have been using Thunderbird for years as my default email app and have always added an icon in the Chrome browser address line (similar to Ghostery, Adblock, etc) to email a browser page. I recently reinstalled Chrome and now cannot add the icon link. Can you tell me how to add Thunderbird to my browser now?

How can one download the latest version of Firefox that is suitable for a given version of Android (without going to Google Play store)?

I have a device with Android 4, and I am trying to download the latest Firefox that will work on it, but finding out what the right version is, and then finding that old apk file, is proving quite challenging, if not impossible. I know it is not recommended, not secure, etc., but I want it anyway. Is there (or could we consider creating) an archive of old apks at the Mozilla website, indicating which version fits which Android release? Similar to that for the VLC Media Player: https://get.videolan.org/vlc-android/

Transfer all messages from POP to IMAP on a Mac

Because GoDaddy is using Microsoft now, my mail account is switching to IMAP. I was hoping this would be as simple is changing a server setting on my existing account, but no.

After creating a new account in the past with POP, all I had to do is dive into the Library directory and copy all of the files and folders from the old account to the new. Worked perfectly.

This is not working. I quit Thunderbird, copy the files, fire up the program and the IMAP account is back like it was.

One of your support articles stated that you can drag and drop folders from one account to the other in the program, but that isn't working.

How do I accomplish this?

I'm using version 91.5.0

Hello!

I have some old Gmail accounts I don't use anymore and just want the old emails on them stored locally so I don't have to go back to them again.

If I can get all of those emails into a mbox format. Is there a way to use Thunderbird strictly as an offline old email reader? Everytime I start it, it ask for me to enter an account and I'm not sure how to get around that ?

I was running 91.4, automatic update told me it failed and I should download and install 91.5 manually. So I did. 91.5 became a new install and didn't pick up any data & settings from 91.4, which was still there. I uninstalled 91.5 and it deleted all my 91.4 data & settings, so 91.4 was now a new installation. I uninstalled 91.4, installed 91.5 and restored an old profile (yes I should backup profiles more often!) The big legacy is that I can't click on a file in File Explorer and share it by email. 'No associated program' is the message. (Thunderbird is my default email client). I read that File Explorer can only do this operation with 32 bit apps. Outlook users are being advised to downgrade their 64 bit app back to 32. Certainly I have a 91.5 64bit install (I don't recall what 91.4 was). Can I downgrade? Is 91.5 available in 32 bit?
