Seems that I had automatic updates for thunderbird and I'm now at version 91.5.0. I'm using 29~20.04.1-Ubuntu if that matters. I instantly regret the update, it seems that some new emails dissipated, filters are working sporadically and so on. How can I get back to my previous thunderbird version and how can I disable automatic updates?

Yours, ta

I use one account on several machines, one machine = one user. To sort the answers, we need to know from which machine the e-mail was sent, when the recipient replied. For example info@domain.com - machine 1. We used Bat before, where the reply address was set as "info@domain.com - machine 1" but on Thunderbird is this address this doesn't work.

update to 91.5.0 deleted one account and all it's folders and sub folders. Also moving many new messages to spam

Multiple problems after Thunderbird update. On two separate computers, mine and my wife's. Ubuntu 20.04 LTS desktop, Ubuntu updated Thunderbird last night to 91.5.0 (64bit). Consulting dpkg.log shows the previous version installed was 78.14. These are distributed by Canonical.

One of my accounts and all it's folders and sub-folders disappeared. Same on the second computer with many more folders in the deleted/missing account.

My filter entry to move some incoming messages from extant account to the disappeared account now unchecked. Have not checked other computer, but expect same behavior.

Many messges to one of my local folders sent to spam. Also new incoming to my one "good" account going to spam.

First, what happened with the new release?

Second, any chance to recover? There are backups of the .thunderbird files

Manual EMail Migration

I may have asked this question before, but I an running on my new mac mini M1, and I cannot find the original question online, so here goes (again): I am in the process of manually migrating from a 2018 mac mini to the 2021 Mac Mini M1. Because I didn't want to possibly infect the new computer with minor issues I was having with the old computer, I figured it would be pretty easy to do the migration as I am not an "app heavy" user.

Before attmepting to migrate my Thunderbird Profiles, I went online and read a bunch of articles and watched quite a few movies on how to isolate the "Profiles" folder in the library (click on GO and option at the same time to click on Library, and then Thunderbird) to find the profiles folder, to copy it, and to place it on a removable hard drive to be transferred to the new mac and it's fresh Thunderbird install. Information noted, and I copied the profiles folder with just 2 files in it: 02estxxx.rick and 4omw47xx.default from the old computer.

On the new computer I did the fresh install of the Thunderbird program, then after opening the program and closing it, I went to the Applications/Thunderbird/Libraries/Profiles on the new computer and one many of my several attempts to transfer the profiles I did both: a. Open the profiles folder and delete the original profiles folders and replaced them with the profiles folders from the original computer (on one attempt) AND on another attempt, replaced the WHOLE profiles folder on the new computer with the original profiles folder from the original mac mini. In both instances it was a no go and I neither got my old emails nor my address book from the old computer. What I ended up doing (was to open Thunderbird) and Manually populate the IMAP settings on each of my email accounts to get them to show up, but what I didn't get was my contact emails. So now when I try to send someone an email, I type in their name in the To: part of the email and it doesn't populate with their email. Now I have to go to an old conversation in one of my own folders to copy their email address from there to put in the to: field. I hope I am describing this accurately. I'm not a computer guy and I have spent more hours on trying to figure this thing out than I care to admit. I sure would like to have some suggestions spelled out in an easy format so I can figure out how to manually migrate my address book from the old Thunderbird program to this new Thunderbird program. Attached is a photo of my Library\Thunderbird\Profiles folder on my new computer after I added both of the old files from the old computer to the files IN the new computer, if that helps.

Been desperately trying to get Firefox to run on my Acer Chromebook 315 through Linux. The app store version just isn't cutting it. I followed these instructions below as best as I could installing linux and flatpack. I even ran a power wash and tried again.

The icon comes up in my dash, but is gray and endlessly loading. Not sure what else I can do. I'm pretty my system is compatible. Is there another way? Am I missing something?

Thank you,

I have been using Firefox for many years on my Mac 10.11.6. Firefox recently offered me an update, I duly downloaded and attempted to update but apparently my Mac is too old, and now cannot get back to the former version of Firefox:0( Problem is I have lost all my passwords to sites that I visited and I cannot find the correct old version of Firefox to re-install, can you please point me to a link that allows me to install the OLD version. I have tried many times throught the ESR channel but it wont work as it is trying to install a higher than possible version:0( Hope for a resolution Cheers Roy from England.
