NOTE: I do NOT have a solution, the email with that comment was clicked on accidentally.

Note that when creating a brand new email in Thunderbird with the extra security step, it did NOT utilize OAuth. That is NOT what happens in the new security process.

If I re-create my existing email, will TB glitch? How do I migrate my existing POP folders to the "new" version of the account?

AOL security update by 7DEC21 requires creating a new account, best way to migrate email files? Notably their instructions don't mention this...

Anyone do this already? Any glitches? What's the easiest way to put your old account data into the new one?

How does TB handle the fact that you have two identical emails with separate accounts, differing only in that one-time password?

And how do you access that password entry popup that ONLY appears during account setup?

I removed the 32 bit version of firefox some time ago and installed the Firefox 64 bit version on my larger secondary drive. Firefox recently updated but the update cause the same version of firefox (version 94.0.1 build 20211103134640) into multiple hard-drives (C & D drives) and different folders. There are now multiple icons in my start menu and the task bar for firefox. They BOTH each fight for the default browser setting as if they were different browsers, and only one will open my previous windows and tabs at startup. I only want firefox to be installed on my secondary drive as my C drive has a much smaller capacity. How can I distinguish and remove one of these conflicting multiple copies of Firefox from my PC without loosing my saved tabs or all of my personal data? Why is firefox installing as 2 different apps, on 2 different hard drives, along the same profile path in two different profile folders as shown with "more troubleshooting information" from the help dropdown menu?

Hi All,

formerly there was a "view release notes" button in the update reminder window to check whether the new release is worth the installation or not. This button disappeared several months ago. Is there a way to enable it in about:config? I think that asking about an update makes no point without showing the list of changes...

Thank you,

Gábor

Can I keep all folders syncronized (sent, drafts etc.), but store older emails offline only? (inbetween IMAP and POP)

I want to use IMAP so I can keep my trash, sent and draft emails synchronized between all devices But I also want to clear all my emails older than 21 days from the server and all my devices with the exception of one Desktop device, where I want to keep an unlimited local copy of all past emails: received, sent, trash and drafts.

Sounds like what I want is something in the middle between IMAP and POP

Pop can keep local copies while deleting for the server but can't sync send, draft and trash IMAP can sync all folders but can't (or at least doesn't by default) delete from the server while keeping a local copy

I have tried setting up both IMAP and POP, but POP simply can't pull emails which were sent by other devices so I figure I have to use IMAP and somehow configure it so that I can clear emails form the server while keeping an offline copy.

Can Thunderbird be configured to use IMAP but also for example copy each email from each folder to a local folder where it will not be deleted? If that can not be done, how can I officially request such feature to be added to Thunderbird?


Just for context: The reason I want to set it up this way is because I want to synchronize my emails to the email client on my phone, but I regard my phone as somewhat insecure: I could lose it or it could get stolen. I want to sync my emails to it, but not keep them longer than 21 days. I also want to consider the server as somewhat insecure, as I know that in some circumstances someone could reset the password of my mailbox by fooling the provider (or it could be subpoenaed) The email client on my desktop is secure, it is installed within an encrypted environment.

I have tried clicking on several different links, to try and download The Firefox Focus Application/Browser, but all have failed! I just get a small blue box afterwards that says…..”try again”. But trying again does nothing….AGAIN! I have also gone to the App Store trying to download the app. It won’t work there either! Can you tell me please just where I might obtain it? It would be for my iPhone. Thank you! Connie ...

I've just downloaded and installed version 91.3.2 of Thunderbird, replacing an older version that I hadn't used for a long time. I want to use it as an alternative to Outlook. If my memory is correct, when I installed the older version, it immediately had access to all the folders that Outlook uses, that is Inbox, Junk, Trash (Deleted in Outlook), Draft and Outbox. Now, there's no Inbox, there are a few old Drafts possibly from the last time I used Thunderbird, and the other folders are empty. Clicking on "Unread Folders" or "All Folders" achieves nothing. Where did I go wrong?

I switched from version 68.12.1 to 91.3.2 which allows me to access Outlook mail and most of my Local Folder mailboxes did not appear in the left folder pane of the new version. I checked C:\Users\User Name\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\kb7yustq.default and all mailboxes and messages are there. To see them again I deleted panacea.dat and global-messages-db.sqlite as suggested by https://www.emailadepts.com/blog/how-to-recover-lost-folder-in-mozilla-thunderbird.htm but the problem persisted. I switched back to the old version (68.12.1) and all mailboxes appeared again. I have also transferred one of the “invisible” subfolders/files into one of the few folders that are “visible” in 91.3.2 (some of the few that were “visible” after updating) but this did not help in seeing their contents in the new version. The problem seems to be specific to version 91.3.2. Thank you in advance for any help you can provide on how to correct this problem

A friend purchased a new Windows 10 PC yesterday. I installed Thunderbird but he had forgotten the password to his sky email account. Sky helped him set up a new password. When we tried to install Thunderbird it did not recognise his new password during the registration process. We reset the password in Thunderbird on his old PC as per the help info and this worked. However when we went back to the new PC Thunderbird still did not recognise the new password. Both devices were powered off between changes as we were using the old screen on both. Any help would be appreciated. Thank You
