I tend to be working on either of 2 PCs so have, for many years, been running Thunderbird with the profile on a shared NAS drive (z:\thunderbird\cc5rdcry.default). The 2 PCs, both have TB setup identically (C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Thunderbird\thunderbird.exe). The Appdata of both contains identical Installs.ini and Profiles.ini files - the profiles.ini for both is:
One PC is running Win10, the other Win 7.
The profile is linked to 4 email addresses.
This week the WIn10 PC updated TBird to version 78.2.1, and now, on that PC I get the "New Account Hub for centralized account setup", and the other shows a message ""You have launched an older version of Thunderbird" which then goes on to say the profile was changed by a newer version.
When the new "hub" appeared I closed down TBird, went to the profiles.ini and changed the profile to point to the one on the NAS, but it made no difference.
If I click on the "hub" address book it brings up most of my collected email addresses, but not "organised" as they were in the profile.
I tried running the profile manager, but it only showed default, so was not sure whether to use that.
