I installed Thunderbird (78.6.1/32-bit) on a new computer running Windows10 Pro. Following files 'installs & profiles' were created in 'C:\Users\xxx\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird' They contain following info ...


1) installs: [8216C80C92C4E828] Default=Profiles/a0xgpvl8.default-release Locked=1

2) profiles: [Install8216C80C92C4E828] Default=Profiles/a0xgpvl8.default-release Locked=1

[Profile1] Name=default IsRelative=1 Path=Profiles/zio2d614.default Default=1

[Profile0] Name=default-release IsRelative=1 Path=Profiles/a0xgpvl8.default-release

[General] StartWithLastProfile=1 Version=2


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've had this happen twice now. Getting a new PC and wanting to transfer my bookmarks from old to new. I have had bookmarks on the old computer arranged in order of priority from left to right on my bookmarks bar. Did the export to create a HTML file and saved it so that I could import to new Firefox browser on new computer. So far so good. However, when setting up new browser and importing my bookmarks from the HTML file, it just creates a single folder on the new browser's bookmarks bar, instead of spreading my bookmarks out on the new bookmarks bar as it should. The bookmarks in the imported folder are still in the order I want, but to get them as individual items on the bookmarks bar, it seems I'd have to drag and drop them one by one to the new bookmarks bar. Solution please?

Every time I install an update my Amazon password no longer works. And, I mean every time. This has been going on for the last 6-12 updates and I am forced to go into my Amazon account from another browser and change my password. I know the password being used in FF is correct because I use LastPass. This doesn't happen with any other browser. I've loved FF for years but this is totally unacceptable and I'm starting to like Edge. Any suggestions.

I was gifted an Amazon Fire Tablet to use for an upcoming hospital/rehab stay. I use Firefox on my desktop and Android phone and want to use it on my tablet, but the Amazon store doesn't have the app. Not sure I trust the Amazon Silk browser, but I may have no choice. I am not a tech savvy person! I don't know the difference between a bit, byte, or buttercup. If there is a way to install and use Firefox on my tablet, and sync with other devices, I would like to do so. Please explain how to do it as though you are talking to a 6 year old (who probably knows more about this stuff than I do, anyway). Thanks. rennylloyd

God's morrow, Gentlefolk and folkesses. I'm trying to migrate Thunderbird to a new coputer. Horrified to see that the Thunderbird folder was 26 GB, I deleted thousands of old emails, emptied all deleted item folders, deleted all archives, restarted the computer and then went to check on the size of the new "much slimmer" folder.

After deleting masses of unwanted data, the folder size has INCREASED to 33GB!

What to do?

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.

Hi,

When I tried to set up Thunderbird last in November, I had a security exception request for Sectigo Limited (previous question). This time is similar but different.

It says the certificate information is invalid.

Am I supposed to confirm this security exemption?

Please see attached.

Thanks,

Upgraded from v.60.9.1 to 68.12.1 finally. Everything works, except nothing happens when selecting any of the dropdown menu items under the "Thunderbird" entry at the top left. This is the one that offers "About Thunderbird", "Preferences", "Quit Thunderbird". (see image) None of these work - all the other dropdown elements under "File", "Edit" etc. work fine. Had to close the program by the keyboard shortcut, but could not see the Preferences at all. Is this a known issue? Mac OS 10.10.5, which I know is old, but v68 is supposed to be compatible. Restarted computer but no difference. Went back to v60.9.1 and the former profile and that works as before. Advice?? Thanks.
