I need to transfer saved logins from Firefox on a soon to be retired laptop to Firefox on a new laptop. New laptop has a few logins created while setting it up than I copied manually knowing that when I import from the old laptop with many logins, the few on the new laptop will be overwritten. My problem is that Firefox can export logins into a logins.csv file but it seems can only import from a Microsoft browser. Is copying the key4.db and logins.json from the old to the new the only correct way to do this? The old laptops logins.json file has a recent date but the key4.db has a 2018 date even though some new logins were saved last month. Do I only need to copy the logins.json file?

I am trying to manually migrate my thunderbird accounts from my 2018 mac mini to my new 2021 mac mini M1 and I am having a heck of a time doing it. I have already invested over 4 hours to no avail. Maybe you can help: So I copied the profiles file from the old computer and dragged it over to the desktop of the new computer. I then opened the Thunderbird library folder under Go/Library/Thunderbird/Profiles and have tried both deleting the existing files (and replacing them with the files from the original mac) and also tried just copying the files from the old profile folder and adding them to the two existing files in the new mac profiles folder. I then close the folder, close the program and restart the program and in every instance this is the error message I get: " Profile missing; your Thunderbird profile cannot be loaded.....". I've tried every iteration I can think of and the only way the program opens is when I get a fresh install and fill out the fill in's when opening the program. Is there some sort of tool I can use to simplify this process? I am at witts end and I have no idea what I am doing wrong as I have tried everything. I barely understand computer code, so the answer has to be simple for me to understand what to do. I'd pay someone to walk me through it at this point, as I need to get this thing installed. Thanks.

Just copied the contents of our old Win7 laptop Thunderbird profile to a new Win10 TB profile. The new Win10 already had TB installed and had 2 accounts. 1 pop account (AOL same email address acct copied form the Win7 TB early last year when the new W10 purchased) and 1 Comcast imap account with a new email address never used on the old Win7 laptop. When I copied the Win7 profile contents I knew it would replace the pop account (only used to receive email with links, etc) with the up to date Win7 messages and local folders which is what I wanted to do. What I did not expect is that the imap account would not be there. The one local folder that was created on the Win10 TB was also missing but I simply copy the 2 files with the folder name from the Win10 backup and now that folder is there along with the local folders transferred from Win7 TB. I tried copying the Imap folder which was just under the profile folder from the Win10 backup and the account is still not on the Win10 current TB. Is there another file that the transfer overwrote that I must find in the backup?

Not for the first time, I suddenly cannot download any files in firefox (from PDFs to wetransfer links etc.). I have followed every bit of online advice there is. In troubleshoot mode I can download files. However by a process of elimination it is not caused by hardware acceleration, addons or extensions or my avast antivirus. This is really troublesome and I really need to download a lot for work. Performing a refresh every couple of weeks is not the solution.

This problem has been around for at least two years now.

Manual EMail Migration

I may have asked this question before, but I an running on my new mac mini M1, and I cannot find the original question online, so here goes (again): I am in the process of manually migrating from a 2018 mac mini to the 2021 Mac Mini M1. Because I didn't want to possibly infect the new computer with minor issues I was having with the old computer, I figured it would be pretty easy to do the migration as I am not an "app heavy" user.

Before attmepting to migrate my Thunderbird Profiles, I went online and read a bunch of articles and watched quite a few movies on how to isolate the "Profiles" folder in the library (click on GO and option at the same time to click on Library, and then Thunderbird) to find the profiles folder, to copy it, and to place it on a removable hard drive to be transferred to the new mac and it's fresh Thunderbird install. Information noted, and I copied the profiles folder with just 2 files in it: 02estxxx.rick and 4omw47xx.default from the old computer.

On the new computer I did the fresh install of the Thunderbird program, then after opening the program and closing it, I went to the Applications/Thunderbird/Libraries/Profiles on the new computer and one many of my several attempts to transfer the profiles I did both: a. Open the profiles folder and delete the original profiles folders and replaced them with the profiles folders from the original computer (on one attempt) AND on another attempt, replaced the WHOLE profiles folder on the new computer with the original profiles folder from the original mac mini. In both instances it was a no go and I neither got my old emails nor my address book from the old computer. What I ended up doing (was to open Thunderbird) and Manually populate the IMAP settings on each of my email accounts to get them to show up, but what I didn't get was my contact emails. So now when I try to send someone an email, I type in their name in the To: part of the email and it doesn't populate with their email. Now I have to go to an old conversation in one of my own folders to copy their email address from there to put in the to: field. I hope I am describing this accurately. I'm not a computer guy and I have spent more hours on trying to figure this thing out than I care to admit. I sure would like to have some suggestions spelled out in an easy format so I can figure out how to manually migrate my address book from the old Thunderbird program to this new Thunderbird program. Attached is a photo of my Library\Thunderbird\Profiles folder on my new computer after I added both of the old files from the old computer to the files IN the new computer, if that helps.

Hello

Many thanks if anyone can simply answer these 3 queries for me!

I don't need explanations etc - even just a 'yes' or a 'no' would be sufficient for me. Or just clear step-by-step guidance as to how to do something.

QUERY: 1. Should I just wait and see if this latest version of Thunderbird will download itself automatically? . . (Though I'm getting fed up with this message coming up every time I go to my emails, and wish I could find a way to shut it up!).

QUERY: 2. How can I be sure that any new version of Thunderbird won't go and alter/remove any of the current features that I like and am accustomed to?

QUERY: 3. If I found it had altered/removed features that I liked etc, could I ever get these re-instated?

MY PROBLEM When I click on 'Download Thunderbird' nothing happens, except that I'm taken to here: https://www.thunderbird.net/en-GB/ No download happens, or not any that I can see. I feel like I've been taken to a 'cul de sac' instead!

Along with this message is always 'We'll help you download it'. Er.... what 'help'?

Hi, I can't install Firefox and I don't know what's going on here.

Yesterday I installed the latest version of Firefox and it worked fine. Then, I turned off the laptop and the next day when I was going to use Firefox, it didn't load any pages. Edge was working fine, Chrome was working fine, but Firefox was not working. Trying to fix the problem, I decided to uninstall Firefox and installing it again. In order to clean even more the previous installation, I even manually deleted the C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox folder to remove all possible traces. I restarted the laptop and downloaded again the Firefox installer. I don't know how, but the installer detected that I had already installed Firefox before. I unchecked restart Firefox and hit the button to continue with the installation. After this, was impossible to install Firefox again. I got a message saying that the installation cannot continue because the VCRUNTIME140_1.dll was not found. The message said that this problem can be fixed by reinstalling the program, but that is not true, everytime I try to reinstall it, I get again the VCRUNTIME140_1.dll error.

After this, the installation stops and the Firefox icon appears on the desktop, but it doesn't install properly the software and when I open it, I cannot browse the Internet.

Do you know what's going on here and how to solve this?

Cheers

I've been able to connect Thunderbird to thee IMAP and SMTP servers for my webmail account. I can see the inbox and all other folders fine but when it comes to downloading messages I've run into a problem.

If I click on a folder that I know has new messages in it, Thunderbird will announce "sending login information" and ":downloading nn messages from (folder name)." This works OK for 3 or 4 folders, but after that Thunderbird only says "sending login information" and downloads no messages from folders that I know have new messages. It also updates the inbox the same way; if I click on Inbox right away, the new messages will download. If I download from a few other folders first, Inbox won't download.

Does anybody have any idea why this happens?
