Quite annoyed with the newest update. They removed the 'paper plane' quick send to device button, removed multiple add-ons including the reader button feature. I'm just not thrilled with this new update. There are certainly upgrades under the surface, but some of those former well made functions have been blindsided or replaced with something that is just not as good. Unpleased with the result and the loss of that usability, for myself.

Hello this is Guenther, Today on November 23rd, 2020 I migrated my installation of Thunderbird 78.5.0 (64-Bit) from the PC Windows 10 to my laptop also Windows 10. To do this, I installed Thunderbird on the laptop and then replaced the new profile folder with a copy of my old original profile folder. The old profile got the new name. After entering Thunderbird, all directories and email were there.

But when I closed Thunderbird and reopened it, Thunderbird crashed. What can I do to secure my e-mails in the long term and use them on a new computer? Who can help me? Thank you!

My E-Mail is: gelchhuber@aol.com

Hi, Thanks to those who may reply.

I'm a french user with basic skills. I'm using Thunderbird with an email adress #1. I have to move to an email adress #2 for work. I might or might not continue to use email adress #1 but my main adress will be 2.
I've organised my folders the way needed by my professionnal activities. 
I'd like to keep this organisation/architecture to continue classify my emails as I did.
Is there a way to do that ? In other words, I'd like to use a new email adress but keep everything else in Thunderbird as it was.
Thanks for your help.

Hi, I have just installed Thunderbird on a new installation of Windows 10. Windows 10 crashed last Friday and was unrecoverable. I have been able to recover all the files off the Windows partition and saved the whole partition on an external hard drive through Linux. During the weekend I have still been downloading emails on Linux using thunderbird. I have copied the profile on Linux (that contain a weekends worth of messages) to the same external hard drive. My problem now is how do merge all these sets of messages together? 1/ The original profile has LOTS of local folders, message filters with loads of critical emails. All of these ar backed up on the external drive. I dont know which files all the local folders and messages are contained in. I dont mind moving folders one at a time if needed. 2/ The emails downloaded whilst I was using linux has about 40 ish emails. Everything is in one inbox. 3/ The emails I downloaded today are likewise all in one inbox. I've tried reading lots on how to move, create profiles, etc. I basically would like to recreate all the original local folders and message rules in my current fresh installation of Thunderbird. My current fresh installation is all the time downloading new messages and I'd like to add in the messages from my temporary linux instaaltion of thunderbird over the weekend. I can post images of directories or any other information that can be of assistance. Just want to break throught some of the confusion. At least I've managed to sort out my Firefox profile. Thanks.

David.

I have a new W/10 PC. I downloaded and installed the latest version of FF 84.0.2 (64-bit) on the new PC.

Once I got it installed on the new PC, I went to the old PC and copied from users/myname/appdata/roaming/Mozilla (which I think is 32-bit) and used that file to replace the MOZILLA in the similar location on the new PC.

However, I started getting error messages about the profiles on the new system were inconsistent with the old system. So consequently, on my NEW PC, I was not able to transfer the bookmarks, profile, etc from the old to the new.

How can I successfully transfer my profiles and other FF info from the old (32-bit) to the new (64-bit)?

In the Profile folder I have the two folders 'a0xgpvl8.default-release' and 'zio2d614.default'. On my old computer I made a backup of my profile 'lccgh133.default' where all my mailfolders are. How do I get the old mailfolders to my new computer?

I hope this was the correct Topic, due to the "migration" section. Basically I set up a new PC for my mom, did a clean installation and copied over her stuff and reinstalled her applications. Most of her email is in Gmail, so the mail itself was not a problem, however all her Address Book was in Thunderbird, not synced with anything ( we have remedied that using the CardBook extension now ). I've got the old Thunderbird profile backed up, so I copied over the old abook.sqlite, abook.mab.old, abook.mab.bak, to her new Profile, then restarted and relaunched Thunderbird. This got me all her Personal Address Book, but not her Collected Addresses. Are those stored in a separate file?

The old PC is gone, we cannot Export anything.

I would like to setup a new domain that I registered at Go Daddy to start receiving email using Thunderbird as my email client. Go Daddy asked me to supply them with the information (MX records, etc) from Thunderbird to add to the domain's DNS records. I don't know what that information is. I also need help with the account setup at Thunderbird so that it will be configured to receive and send emails properly.

My new domain is caryneyes.com

Help, please! After a computer tech worked on my machine I've been unable to use FF. I have no trouble downloading a file, but when I click on "Run" I get this error message: "Can not create temp folder archive." I can't get beyond that. This may be related to 7-Zip, because that program always pops up with the error message. What should I do?

I use multiple Firefox profiles. Normally, Profile Manager always appears at launch.

But lately, if I launch Firefox while a profile is already open, it just opens a new window in the current profile. The only way I can get Profile Manager is by typing firefox.exe --profilemanager.

For the record, I don't have this option enabled: Use the selected profile without asking at startup.

I have a problem with the firefox browser on my phone (Oneplus 7T). When I download a file, and then want to open it, the message "Could not open file" is displayed on my screen. For example, I tried to download word documents and pdf files, and it wasn't possible to open any of these two types.

I already activated the external download manager but it didn't change anything. I put firefox as my default browser but nothing changed.

I really want to switch from chrome to firefox but this problem is the main reason I don't...


Anyone can help :) ?
