The hint to use thunderbird --allow-downgrade is very helpful, but does not really answer my question. I want to upgrade the profile itself so I can use the current version. I fear that creating a new profile will lose all the emails stored in":local folders" and in subsets of "inbox."

I would just use a new profile iff doing so would not lose these emails.

Thunderbird 92.1.0 MacOS 10.13.6 Gmail via POP3

The problem is pretty straightforward. Thunderbird downloaded (almost) everything fine and retrieves new mail as expected. It won't download anything before 7/5/2009 while Gmail has messages going back to 2004. How can I make Thunderbird download those older messages?

On Oct 11, 2021, complete power outage occured while Thunderbird was in the process of updating to Version 91.2.0. The power immediately came back on, the desktop computer restarted but Thunderbird will not start. When trying to start, a small blue circle appears and then disappears. Using Windows 10, on desktop, 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor.

It will not start using the shortcut, or clicking on thunderbird.exe in Program Files (x86) > Mozilla Thunderbird, or using Windows-R and typing thunderbird -safe-mode. It is not running in the Task Manager.

I did remove the following from the Profiles folders. But it still won't start.

   parent.lock
   session.json
   xulstore.json

I don't know if I need to reinstall Thunderbird. I expect some of the Profile folders need repair, but I need help knowing just what to do. There is an extra Thunderbird and Thunderbird Profiles folder in AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird.

I'm sending images of the following:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Thunderbird C:\Users\xxxx\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird C:\Users\xxxx\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles C:\Users\xxxx\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Thunderbird C:\Users\xxxx\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Thunderbird\Profiles C:\Users\xxxx\AppData\Local\Thunderbird\Profiles

I don't want to cause more damage and hoping you can help. Thank you.

I used to run Firefox 88.0.1 (64 bit) on a Windows 7 PC. With lots of help from this forum I wrote a userchrome.css file to make several changes to the appearance.

On a new Windows 10 machine I installed the same version of Firefox (since I don't care for the latest one). I added my old profle to the new installation and selected it as the default.

Unfortunately, when I opened the program I was prompted to create a new profile; there didn't seem to be any way around this. So I let it happen and tried simply copying my old chrome folder into it - I thought at least I could make the visual changes even if I couldn't import my bookmarks and so on.

But this didn't work either: when I run the program, none of the expected changes are there.

Presumably I've done something wrong, but what, exactly? I'd be grateful for any thoughts. Ideally, I'd like to use the whole of the old Win7 profile but if that's not possible at least changing the appearance would be pleasant.

Many thanks.

I was wondering if it was possible for the current version of Firefox browser Android app to be installed to external storage, i.e. an installed SD card, rather than internal storage on the phone. Some of us are using Android-Go with a large SD card and it would be useful for the app to be smart enough to detect that there is external storage, and automatically install to that location instead, just like most of the apps I have already installed that are smart enough to already do this automatically. Thanks for any input.

Hello

I just have upgraded from a very old mac to the newest. I like to update Thunderbird now from 17.0 to the latest version. However, if I use the "check for updates" in the about section of the old Thunderbird, it say's that I'm on the latest version ...?? I have downloaded and installed the latest Thunderbird, but this one did not migrate the data from the old Thunderbird. It asks me to setup new account. I also found an option to import data, but there is only the option to import from 3rd-party ...??? Please let me know how to upgrade; I need all my email accounts and conversations from my old 17.0 Thunderbird in the latest Thunderbird.

Thanx Lukas
