Hello,

James here. I CAN NOT find the Firefox application file location. There is no option to show file path upon right click of the desktop icon and I can not locate it in File Explorer. I have done an entire (C:) drive search and turned up nothing. C:\Users\(username)\AppData\Local\Mozilla Firefox does not exist in my file system. I am at a loss here and it's driving me bonkers!

A computer is still running Thunderbird 102 happily. That is the plan -- the user is NOT prepared to deal with 115 and later, and the changes therein. Somehow, even though it was supposedly set to only install updates when you told it to, it downloaded and began the process of installing 115. So it's up and running now at 102, but says that when you restart, it will go to 115. Please don't tell me how wonderful 115 is; been there, done that, it's not my machine but it's someone near and dear to me who detests computers in the first place but has to use them so gratuitous changes are utterly unwelcome....

So is there a way to delete something and tell Thunderbird to just keep running 102 and not do the upgrade? If I have to reinstall 102 on top of the old profile, which contains many gigabytes of IMPORTANT mail, I can deal with that. I assume that the profile hasn't been munged yet by the update so I'm asking now. Thanks!

I am posting this on my Mac Monterey; but the problem is on my Windows 10. It is similar to my last post about Firefox on that system. Updating is hanging. About Thunderbird shows an update available, just as that feature on Firefox did last week. However, though it indicates that it is attempting to download, it shows that nothing is downloading. So, there is a spinning icon on the left, but zero bytes downloading, just as Firefox did. After a restart last week Firefox applied the download. The same action occurs now with Thunderbird. To contrast, that same update just downloaded and applied on this Mac Monterey. The version on Windows 10 is 115.10.2, 64-Bit. There is a general Windows Update problem on that system. Edge, on the other hand, downloads its updates without any problem. I just ran a Troubleshooter that Windows makes available under Settings, Update and Security, Troubleshoot. Right now I am about to restart that computer.

Hi, David replied to my original question as to why the Folders are not loading off the Yahoo server onto a new computer as they are on my old computer.

The Thunderbird version on the OLD computer utilises a IMAP Mail Server. The version I downloaded yesterday and installed on this new computer utilises a POP Mail Server with no option I can see to change this. Screen Capture attached.

So Presumably I need the IMAP Mail Server version of the App. If I'm correct where would I download it from?

Thank you and kind regards, Mark.

hi there

i have been keeping my local folders stored on my microsoft sharepoint but need to move them to my local drive due to storage restraints on my sharepoint.

the first thing i did was to change local folder location to my C drive (I know how to do that).... then when I started looking online for how to move the local folders, I decided I should probably start by directing thunderbird back to the original local folder location on sharepoint... but now I can't seem to undo the change and whilst I can see my local folders on the sharepoint, i don't know which folder to select so that thunderbird will display my local folders correctly.

see attachment 1 - this is where I am directing thubderbird to find the local folders


but the local folders are looking like attachment 2


I'ved tried directing it lower down in the file hierarchy, or higher up, but nothing seems to work.


Can you help by telling me which folder I should select?

please and thank you!!!

I've recently decided to switch to Thunderbird from Windows Live Mail, which is no longer supported. I also use Mailwasher PRO which displays emails on the server and allows me to delete unwanted emails from the server. If I download emails to Thunderbird, I expect them to be stored automatically on my PC. However, when I subsequently delete them from the server, using Mailwasher, they are deleted from the inboxes in Thunderbird as well.

I'm guessing it's a setup issue but am struggling to find what is wrong. Thanks in advance for your help.

I recently un-installed an old version of Thunderbird that was showing a vulnerabilty and would not patch itself to the latest version for some reason (old version was in the 60s). I had all mail stored in a non-standard folder on my D drive so that it would be included with my backups. After uninstalling, my non-standard folder is still there. However, the location where Thunderbird was originally installed was removed and that is not included in my backups.

I installed today the newest version of Thunderbird, but I cannot get it to open my old mail. I'm able to login to my accounts, but I need to access the email stored in my non-standard storage file.

Hi. I love Thunderbird! But I cannot use a Gmail account.

It all started when I changed the underlying password for my Gmail account (for routine security). I changed the password too on my Thunderbird client for SMTP and IMAP.

But then it popped up with: https://accounts.google.com/v3/signin/identifier?app_domain=http://localhost& [etc]

it keeps giving me this message:

"400. That’s an error. The server cannot process the request because it is malformed. It should not be retried. That’s all we know."

I've tried to read online what's going on. I've deleted the account and tried to set up again, and closed Thunderbird. It keeps doing this. I've checked Google settings ... nothing untoward. It doesn't have a link to Thunderbird still.

What can I do?

Thanks, Dan

I am moving Thunderbird to a new PC, old was Win 10, new is Win 11. I installed Thunderbird on the new one, same version 115.10.2 though this is now 64 bit, old was 32 bit. I followed the instructions to move the profile by copying the Thunderbird folder onto aUSB stick then copying it to the new computer. The address book is there, but the local folders I had are not. Looking inFile explorer, I see that the Local Folders folder is there which contains all the folders I had, all populated, but there is also a Local Folders-1 there which does not, and this is the one Thunderbird is using. If I delete this folder, next time I start Thunderbird, it creates this folder again. I have obviously done something wrong, but cannot see what it is.

I am setting up a new Windows 11 Computer and am trying to install Thunderbird. I have downloaded TB (Thunderbird Setup 115.10.2) to my Download Folder. I double click on that file to run the Setup program, complete the user account information and TB and select Continue. TB completes the search and displays the correct account (att.net) connection information, SMP, POP3, Ports, etc. I select DONE and the Checking Password box displays. It runs for a few minutes and an Error message displays: "Unable to log in at server. Probably wrong configuration, user name or password." If I select Configure Manually, a window displays showing the correct configuration information (I have checked it four times). I will note that "Normal Password" has been selected for Authentication Method in case that is important. I have tried this method several times and get the same Error message. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I have attached a screenshot of the configuration window. Note: My account is with att.net but I am still using my old pacbell.net account that was merged with ATT many years ago.
