Hello I would like to use Thunderbird for emails and get away from google email. I would like to get all my folders and contacts calendar events etc... from my gmail account (I have read how to do this). My question is after exporting this from Gmail can I get rid of my gmail account and keep all the information in Thunderbird ONLY with no tracking or connection from gmail/google?

Greetings everyone,

Sorry to be creating a thread about this, but it's a serious question I need help with.

I was just about to install Firefox for my old Android phone. However, before installing Firefox it warns me that it requires access to a bunch of my personal data... :(

Why is this the case?

I currently use Google Chrome on this Android phone.

I'd really appreciate any advice.

Hi - I'm having an issue with Firefox, well its been ongoing for some weeks but just getting around to it..

My problem is that Firefow will not download files. I have tried the trouble shooting steps and its not a firewall issue because my other browsers will download - as a developer I have all the major browsers installed.

Also I changed the settings to have Firefox request the download folder for each downlod - but it doesn't. Anyway I am about to reinstall will post back then.

Maybe should have done that first.

I recently moved my domain from onewebhostinghub.com to Network Solutions (along with my website). Network Solutions gave me instructions on how to set up my T-Bird email with them, which works fine. However, they had me create a new "account" in T-Bird rather than edit my existing one. I now realize I have many saved emails in the old TB "account" I need to move over the "new" one. Any suggestions on how to do that?

Thunderbird just updated itself to 78.1.0 (32-bit).

Upon opening itself, I see that... I have no email accounts I have no filters I have no address book.

I am running Windows version 1909. Everything was just fine until this update.

How do I get my filters, accounts and address books back? I had nearly 50 filters setup!!!!!

I've been using Thunderbird successfully in a multi-user environment for many years, but recently have been running into the same issue over and over.

First some background on our use case. We have 12 team members that use 20 or so different computers at any given time to access email. In order to accomplish this, we use profile manager of course and house all of the profiles on a central server. Each team members profile is configured on each computer and they select from the list. Sorry far, so good. Works great, everyone happy.

Recently I get weekly, sometimes daily, screen captures of the error message "You have launched an older version of Thunderbird....a newer version may have made changes to your profile which is no longer compatible..." This is easily solved by updating Thunderbird on the offending computer, but with users roaming between computers and some computers not being used for a few days it's a constant battle. Profiles and application instances in all states of version control hell.

The only solution I can think of would be to turn off automatic updates and do them manually. This is a clunky solution and I'd rather find a better way.

So, first: Why now? And second: are there really fundamental changes to the profiles on each release?

Hey

I've copied thunderbird folders from appData/local/localLow/roaming, and then pasted them in the same spot on new pc. Most of my account works except for few. The google ones seems to be fine, but my private not. When I 1st set them up when I send/received 1st email I had certificate pop up to accept which I did and I could use it. But now it does not give that option.

Initially I had

``` Sending of the message failed. Unable to communicate securely with peer: requested domain name does not match server's certificate. The configuration related to xxx.com must be corrected. ``` Now I had no idea how to do it, so I went to settings>certificate manager and I simply deleted the cerfs. But sadly thunderbird did not re-ask me to add them again.

Then I went to appdata found certs files and deleted them there by hand. Still no luck.

I'm out of ideas now, I don't want to delete accounts/create again as its a bit of pain...

Can any1 suggest any workaround? How to force tb to reinitialize account?

I have Windows 10, version 1903. I recently backed up my Mozilla Roaming and Local profiles to an external drive before replacing the hard drive in my laptop. I also separately made a backup of my bookmarks. After replacing my hard drive with a new one, I restored an earlier image file of my computer in order to put back all my data onto the new drive.

Then I did a Fresh Start, effectively doing a new install of Windows 10 (v.1903).

(As far as I can tell, my old Firefox data was deleted during the Fresh Start reinstall.)

I now did a new install of Firefox onto my computer. After I opened it I synced and it seems that all my bookmarks, etc came back. The only two problems: 1) All my hundreds of bookmark favicons had been replaced with a generic globe. 2) My last session (which had scores of tabs), was not restored. So I tried copying and pasting the saved profiles back into the new Mozilla Roaming and Local profiles, but I can't get Firefox to access them. Instead, it only accesses the new profile. I did an uninstall and tried it again, but all I ended up doing is creating another new profile. Now when I go to About:Profiles (see image), the default-release and default profiles listed don't seem to exist anymore (they aren't loadable, and they can't be found using the filepath noted there), and the actual backup profiles that I copied from my portable drive into Mozilla and that I actually see in File Explorer, doesn't show up as a profile choice. How can I restore my old backed up profile, and will that solve my missing favicons problem?

Thunderbird version 78.1.0 won't sync at all. Error message: "Unable to log in at server. Probably wrong configuration, user name, or password." I KNOW my user name and password are correct. I didn't make stupid upper case/lower case or spelling errors with my user name or password and they work just fine with Comcast web based e-mail. First, I used Thunderbird automatic configuration without success. Then I got server settings from Comcast and CAREFULLY did Thunderbird manual configuration several times but got the same error each time. I even contacted Comcast for technical assistance several times, but they were useless idiots, as usual. I also tried uninstalling and reinstalling Thunderbird, but that also didn't help. I'm running Windows 10 with the latest updates installed.

The last update on 07.22 or 23 failed and Thunderbird would not start up. So, I simply downloaded the latest version 78.0.1 and installed it. At this point Thunderbird was able to setup my main account fine but 2 other accounts and all folders are not there. Are the folders somewhere so I can restore them? I did not make TB backups. Thank you.
