My Mozilla Thunderbird recently upgraded when I had close it and restart my system to work on it. I only recently went to start it back up and it wants me to setup my email account. I had several email accounts already setup before the upgrade, but it is acting like they never existed and it is a fresh installed.
I went out to the AppData and found Thunderbird folder. In Profiles, there is only one folder. Looking at the files and folders inside, it contains my previous data (I found logins.json which contains my SMTP, IMAP, and POP servers listed inside, as well as the Mail and IMAPMail folders show stored data from my accounts). When I load Thunderbird it seems to update some of the files in that same Profile, but acts like no account data is located in the system. I am not sure if this is because of changes to the system or what, but is there a way to recover all of my settings and accounts from before the upgrade?
I have a system backup that is about a week old (it backs up every day, but I only keep a weeks worth), but restoring the profile folder didn't seem to do anything.
