I've read all the articles here about importing my passwords and history, but the Import Wizard is ONLY giving me the option to import my bookmarks. Even if I can't get the browsing history I need to be able to migrate my (extensive) password list.

I've exported my Safari passwords as a .csv file, but there doesn't seem to be an option to import a .csv file.

The page here regarding it says the feature is 'disabled by default' but does not say it's unavailable and I can't find clear instructions for how to activate the feature so that I can import my passwords. Can anybody help?

Good Evening, I had to reinstall Windows 10. My computer repairman installed Thunderbird along with much of my software. Since the reinstall I cannot Upgrade to Thunderbird 91.8.1. The auto update fails and the re-install does not upgrade to the new version. I have downloaded the new version many times and it still stays with the old version after the re-install. A couple times Thunderbird said I had the new version after I re-installed Thunderbird, but after restarting Thunderbird it goes back to the old (91.7.0) version.

Should I delete Thunderbird before I try to install? If I do will I loose all of my E-mail and folder information?

I would appreciate any advice. Thank you, Terry Prather [removed email from public]

Hello, I need your help and support. I put in steps what i had done.

1. I had a sync in my account dchisinska-br@o2.pl 2. Format C: without extracting my profile 3. After reinstal Win10 I wanted to sync but forgot the password 4. Reset password, BUT didnt know that when I change my password without Recovery Key all will be lost. 5. When I realized that this happened I found a profile from 2019. 6. Every time when I copy data form old profile to new profile browser want to refresh and whole profile is clear withou data. 7. Also I opened Help->more tools for Troubleshooting information -> Profile folder -> Open -> COPY from old to new. Nothing happened. Still have nothing.

I lost all my password, history and everything.

Please help or how to solve this problem. Or maybe you can recover data from SYNC which is missing after changing password to my mozilla account.

Thank you, Danuta

I used Thunderbird with apple mail on Windows many years ago on my PC. Later I shifted to eM Client because I liked the options. However, I do like the new Thunderbird 1.02 and wanted to switch back on my new PC.

In the beginning, it asks me my email account... which is a [mac.com](https://mac.com) address, and then it says it found the configuration in the database, and prompts me to finish. But that's where the problems start...

It will not download messages. It either get stuck on Opening folder INBOX and up comes the infamous Windows hourglass... which sits and sits and sits, then eventually says SERVER HAS DISCONNECTED. There may be a problem with the server has disconnected.

As before, I generated a new app-specific password so that's not the problem. The authentication configuration is SSL/TLS and Normal Password. Using [imap.mail.me.com](https://imap.mail.me.com) as the server, port 993. My SMTP port is 587.

I tried new app-specific passwords, no change. I tried using the same exact setup (but different app specific password ) that I use in eM Client which always connects perfectly with zero problems. I tried various authentication changes such as STARTTLS, SSL/TLS and None. No luck. I tried oAuth2, encrypted password, normal password, etc. No luck there either. Tried turning off Windows Defender firewall. No luck. Tried reducing number of connections from 5 to 1. No change.

I also have a separate gmail account. When I added it to Thunderbird, it started right up and immediately began downloading messages just fine. But the apple mail is STILL stuck.

ANY HELP would be appreciated. I've spent too much time on the wrong solutions. When googling, all the solutions suggest the same exact things I tried. No luck. Or the solutions are for older versions of Thunderbird.

Hi - I have a laptop running Windows 10 that had an old version of Thunderbird installed (v.78) which had been working fine but not used for some time. I wanted to transfer my Profile (latest version) from another computer and re-installed Thunderbird at v.102 onto the "new" laptop. When manually setting up the email account I get stuck at "checking password" and setup hangs. I tried uninstalling using Revo Uninstaller and did a new installation but still get the same problem. The email account is a POP 3 mailbox and the outgoing server is SMTP - all manual settings are correct and the same as I have on the other "old" pc that I want to transfer my working account/profile from. I cannot locate a solution on the community help pages and hoped that you could assist please. Looking forward to hearing from you soon. Many thanks and kind regards Graham Shepherd

I went to migrate Thunderbird to a new PC and discovered that the Tools>Export choice is missing from the drop-down menu. Attached is a screen capture. This is version 91.11.0.

Yes, I know I should be able to move the directory over from Windows Explorer, but it seems odd that this menu is missing. The Help Center article was just updated a couple weeks ago and shows the menu, so it wouldn't seem to be a deprecated feature: [[Export your Thunderbird Profile|https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/thunderbird-export]]

Is this a bug that has somehow crept into this version or does this feature need to be enabled somewhere? I don't know how else to report this anomaly other than this forum.

Hi there, I am wondering how to create a launcher shortcut for the newest version of Thunderbird in Fedora/Gnome. I have downloaded the file, extracted it, and I am able to run Thunderbird from the executable. However, I'd like to have Thunderbird accessible from the launcher (gnome desktop). I can't find instructions for this for the latest version. (The newest version of Thunderbird is not available in the software centre nor by dnf install. I can only get version 91 by those methods). If there is a way to install the latest version by terminal, i would do that.

Hello I am new to TB!

I use the automatic IMAP configuration and it gives the green message that it "finds the servers" though when I press done, it gives me an error message saying the incoming server already exists.

I use the manual IMAP configuration and enter in all my details from my server and re-test and it gives me the green message saying it "found the following settings by probing the server" though when I press done, it gives me an error message saying the incoming server already exists.

Where do I go from here to configure my email?!
