When encountering a problem with a new release and wanting to downgrade back to an older (working) version - especially if some plugin I depend on hasn't been updated yet. The current version is well marked, but it would be helpful if the older versions had a subject line like "Release 115.x.x (github commit id)" so we can do better than walk back one release at a time. All flatpak examples for rollback show meaningful subject lines, but Thunderbird and other flatpaks I actually use don't seem to.

About a week ago I started getting these update error messages stating "Update available - Firefox couldn't update automatically. Download the new version". I've also tried clicking "learn more" on the error message but it's a dead link. Going into the settings for updates I am set to auto update, but when I manually check for updates it says "Failed to check for updates".

The help article on this issue simply tells you to download and manually reinstall Firefox, but I'm having to do this nearly every day. I work in IT myself so I know a "bandaid" workaround when I see one. Is there a solution to this issue?

Hello, I have two email addresses, one personnel, one business. The other night, Thunderbird asked me to download an update. Since downloading the update, all my business emails and subfolders are gone and have been replaced by my personnel email address and subfolders. (in the left hand pane - pic attached) The business emails and subfolders are on my main server yahoo, but are not on my Thunderbird program. Can someone help me to recover the business email address emails and subfolders? Thank you.

Sadly, my old Windows 10 PC crashed, and I'm migrating to a new computer. I have a backup of the old default profile folder (9k7faw1z.default), but not of the entire Profiles folder. I have tried to import this old default profile using the import function in my new Thunderbird install on my new Windows 11 computer.

Alas, I get the error message "Import failed unexpectedly; more information may be available in the Error Console." I looked in the error console, and it's empty.

Is there a better way to import my old data from my old default profile folder? It's 3GB of valuable data and I'll be in a pickle if I can't access it.

Thanks very much.

It worked only fairly well, but now it has pretty much bitten the dust. I installed T'bird for her and it's working fairly well, but with a couple minor bugs. First, there is no address book in it and also the menu bar across the top is missing. HELP!!!!!

Hi, I am running Thunderbird v. 115.9.0 on Windows 10 on my desktop. I have been forced by Rogers in Canada to migrate my internet service from their legacy internet service to Rogers Ignite with its Ignite (Comcast) gateway. My email accounts were supposed to be migrated automatically, but, for reasons unknown, were not, and a tech support representative had to migrate them from the old legacy service to Ignite. After that was done, I opened Thunderbird, and was asked to authenticate my 2 Rogers/Yahoo email accounts, one of which is my primary account, the other a secondary account. I was asked to authenticate the secondary account first, which went well. I then clicked on my primary account in the left-hand pane and was again asked to authenticate, but the dialogue box showed it was for the secondary account. Thinking that this secondary account authentication was just being repeated for no particular reason, and not thinking that the email address in the authentication request box could be changed, I clicked Agree. My primary account is now showing the exact same emails as are listed in the secondary account, and I'm extremely concerned that I will not be able to recover all of the thousands of emails in my primary account, many of which are business-related. When I log into my primary account on the Rogers/Yahoo mail website, the emails in the primary account are still showing, so I know they are still on the Rogers IMAP server. However, I really want to continue to use my primary account on Thunderbird. I'm not sure if I should delete the primary account and recreate it - the Rogers support tech said that deleting the account may result in an issue where my current password for a re-created primary account may not be recognized, so I'm leaving things as they are until I hear back. It the advice is to not delete and recreate the account, what steps can I take to recover the emails on my primary account in Thunderbird. Thanks in advance for any help and advice that can be provided. LES.

Have two computer with same email. My Wife's computer password got corrupted and unable to get messages. I deleted TB and deleted any reference to Thunderbird in the registry. Turn off and restarted PC, downloaded new install and run and all the setting from before automatically were in place and still could not get pass the password issue. My computer does not have any password.

My wife's PC, under setting, does not have any saved passwords or a Primary password or even the "Use a Primary Password" checked. If it is checked there is nothing there. It just will not get passed the password issue being always asked when trying to "Get Messages".

How do you get rid of all the infor, setting, password requirements and to be able to restart with a clean Thunderbird install or get passed the password issue? Making my brain hurt.

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.

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

I have suffered a total hard drive crash. Fortunately, I had a complete disk image saved to iDrive. After many hours, I was able to find my profile in the appdata and watch yesterday as my 10000+emails (approximately 10 years of emails!) streamed into my new PC from my Comcast/Xfinity account. However, when I went to access my TB account this morning only a small percentage of the emails that downloaded yesterday were accessible. My TB email account is essentially the file drawer of my life. I want and need to be able to access all 10000+ on a daily basis. What did I do wrong? How can I fix this. Thank you so much!

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.
