Hi, I am a new TB user, and love it so far :) However, I am on Fedora (new to that too) and installed it via the Fedora repository rather than Flathub. You don't need to know that though, the upshot is...

I need to uninstall TB, and then install it again immediately (from another source). I spent WEEKS getting help from a coder who wrote me a python script and all sorts of headaches to get my massive 20 year email archive converted from mac into TB. So I have tons of nested local folders, and all settings set up nicely. I am scared of losing stuff, account details, settings, worst of all local folders and the emails contained in them.

Please can someone advise me how best to go about uninstalling it and reinstalling it while leaving my entire profile, emails, settings, accounts intact. Is that possible? Thanks

This appears to be an ideal resource for e-mail handling. It’s free, (open source?), private, secure, feature rich, streamlined, and (of course) it’s Mozilla. I would like to utilize this with my website and to eventually roll out the app version to my team. I’m hoping to define rules to automate moving e-mails to specific folders and to automate flagging/painting specific e-mails, notes, tasks, and calendar events. I suppose that it’s always easier to ask for things/stuff, but I hope that all of this makes enough sense to you that you were already working on plans for such a development/project. Perhaps GitHub’s resources could ease the burden. Who knows, perhaps you will add appointment setting and VoIP hosting to your software offerings. (I have been looking for a feasible (freesible), private, and secure way to implement such resources in my website. Also, I sincerely hope that Mozilla will partner with BlackBerry to do more big things.

I utilize Bluehost, Concrete CMS, osTicket, Elkarte, Church CMS, and PrestaShop. I am also playing around with Gibbon and RosarioSIS (and trying to survey) to see what will best suit our tutoring, training, and growing plans for academic development.


Earn ‘n Save (Earn-n-Save.com) is a Points To Ponder website. We are working towards a well-rounded approach to re-establishing our community services. A lot of development is yet underway as the website has been overhauled a few times due to buggy updates that taught the hard lesson about the importance of backups and another lesson about development documentation when a backup did not restore it. As we try to help people to live more charitable, God-honoring, effective, efficient, informed, and resourceful lives from business to society to socializing to recreation to academia to health to procreation to philanthropy, we aim to tell others about Mozilla, BlackBerry, Apple, Linux, Microsoft, GitHub, and so on. We aim to help connect the dots for small businesses to establish, to streamline, to network, to market, and to make our marketplace more of a success than a struggle in ways that don’t require choosing between beliefs and business (i.e., one’s way of life and how one makes a living).

Thanks for my soapbox moment. I hope that my suggestion/request et al brightened your day! Thanks.

I wish to install and use the Firefox browser on my old 64bit Windows 7 laptop.

I believe the last v115 will be the last Windows 7 compatible version of Firefox, if this is correct where can I find this or the correct version of Firefox to download and install on my Windows 7 laptop?

The Firefox website only seems to provide v119 now.

Thanks, Graham

I could extract the Firefox apk from my phone and sideload this onto my quest, but I don't understand why Mozilla don't make an apk available for direct download or make Firefox available via the Meta store. The latter I can understand as it's more time an effort, but I'm at a loss regarding the direct apk availability.

Does anyone know why this is only downloadable via Google Play?

Cheers

''''''''RE: Thunderbird version 115 is only offered as direct download from thunderbird.net and not as an upgrade from Thunderbird version 102 or earlier. A future release will provide updates from earlier versions.''''''''

But my Thunderbird 102 automatically updated to 115. In doing so it deleted all my Sent folders and Sent emails. Profiles backed up under 102 are incompatible with the 115 profile!!! Eventually, I was able to click and drag most of the deleted emails from a backup of 102 to 115.

If 115 is not a direct update why did it automatically update with attendant issues?

I use a samsung galaxy A12, and I have issue with the download functionality. Whenever I'm downloading and I pause or the Internet becomes bad, when I resume the download or "try again", it completes the download but the file becomes corrupted and won't open in my phones storage. And I notice that the size of the file is always less than the actual size downloaded, which indicates that it stopped downloading into the local storage at the point it paused or network became bad.

It'll download completely, but the file downloaded into the phone becomes corrupted and useless. It's annoying that a browser has such a problem in 2023.

Please, fix up ASAP.

We have recently enabled background updates in our organization, however I noticed that a requirement for this to work is that Firefox needs to be run with the default profile at least once after the feature is enabled. The issue we have is that not all users are actively using Firefox and therefore they are not being updated. I realize the security flaws won't be exposed if it's not in use, but management doesn't like seeing out of date browsers. Is there a way to force auto updates on all device where Firefox isn't not being used. Background updating is working for the majority of those that do use Firefox.

Also, we do have a couple of users reporting a credential prompt when updating from 119 to 119.0.1. These same users had no issues updating from 118 to 119. I have not figured out why this is happening just yet and why only for a handful of users so far. Would anyone have an idea why that is happening?

I'm trying to migrate old messages (stored under pop) in an outlook .pst.

choosing Tools, Import, then selecting Import from Outlook, immediately gives a "No Profile Found" above the import tool.

I'm not even clear if this is referring to a Thunderbird profile, an outlook profile, or possibly a file in an import directly somewhere?

anyone have suggestions?

I need to download & install TB ver 31.8.0 to a newly installed system running ubuntu 22.04.

My earler installation of TB 31.8.0 on my other computer has critical information on it, running under ubuntu 14.04. It's so old that i cannot access the internet on it.

So I'm hoping to install TB 31.8.0 on this new computer, copy my TB profile from my old computer to this new computer, then do the necessary updates to this newly installed version of TB 31.8.0 to bring it up to TB vers 115

Thanks in advance!

This has been a headache. Cox has had us migrate our accounts to yahoo. I have been able to do most of my emails, but my husband had yahoo tech help him and one of his emails will not download to the thunderbird account. The tech did a pop.mail.yahoo with this one but created new imap accounts with the other two. I tried to create a new account but it says Incoming server aleady exists. So I deleted the account, shut down Thunderbird and brought it up and tried again. I got the same message.

I am new extremely tech savvy but know a little more than my husband. If someone could please help walk me through this, I would appreciate it. Thank you.

I posted the following question 1 month ago. Can anyone help me with this, it's driving me crazy! Please respond.


- Open TB - Open Inbox to see all emails - Open an email, read it, delete it - Scroll down, reading email Subjects until I find another email I want to open (this may be 30-40 lines or more) - Open another email, read it, delete it

The cursor/highlight then jumps back up to the previously highlighted email (next to the first email I deleted). Now I don't know where I am, I don't know what email Subjects I have already looked at, I don't know where the next unlooked-at email is. In order to get back to where I was before I deleted the second email, I have to scroll down through many emails I have already scrolled through.

How do I stop TB from doing this? I want the cursor/highlight to stay right where it was before I delete any email, I do not want it jumping to some previous location.

Hello,

I have a new computer set up and I have Thunderbird on an old computer with old emails that we no longer use. I'd like to set Thunderbird up on a new computer and transfer all of the old emails to the new computer so old emails can still be checked.

Can you please show me how to do so and how to migrate this old data and set up Thunderbird on a new device?
