Hi, Id like to newly install TB - but have all my old emails stored in folders which I cant get hold of right now (I copied them directly from the application folders/user data, not using any program for it) So if I install TB now - will it be possible for me to LATER add the old files/folder structure etc - and without overriding anything?? Thx very much in advance!!

Why is there no Tbird 45.9esr? Mainstream no longer supports GTK+2 theming and looks horrible.

All,

I am being prompted to update thunderbird from 45.8esr. There is no 45.9esr available? Several weeks ago when the notice was triggered by a bug in the esr update path I was upgraded to 52 which broke lightning and would not recognize the GTK+2 theme. 52 looked horrible and there was no way to make it usable with a dark KDE desktop. Has this been fixed so I can feel confident about the update. There is no technical reason not to continue to support current themes as they work fine with 45.8. There is no reason not to continue to support the current GTK+2 themes until GTK+3 stabilizes and there are adequate themes available to work with dark desktop themes. Let me know, I'll stay at 45.8 until this is fixed.

(I apologize if you get 2 similar copies, the mozilla support site choked because I hadn't clicked on the confirm e-mail yet)

Mac OS. Migrating Mail folders to Thunderbird. How to keep Inbox messages read in the inbox. Incoming sound setup is grayed out. Composing email single space.

Mac OS 10.11.6, MacBook Pro. I just installed Thunderbird as my default mail app, changing from the Apple Mail application. I have a few issues: 1. I can't set up an incoming mail sound. It is grayed out in Preferences/General. I followed the Help article but it does not apply/work. 2. Messages in my Inbox disappear after I read them. They are going to the Trash folder or the Archive folder. Some are gone all together. I want to keep them all in the Inbox until I decide to move them. How do I do that? 3. In my Apple Mail app I have a few dozen sub folders (mail boxes). Thunderbird did not import them and their messages. I followed the Thunderbird Help article about it, but it did not work. 4. When composing an email message it is double spacing netween paragraphs. I would like to single space instead. Is there a way to set that up? Thanks. Christian.

I transferred, successfully, my emails from an old computer to a new one. However, I has used the new one, briefly, and had some important emails that I did not want to lose. I thought that I would be given a choice to merge old with new but the result was that when I go into ...AppData/Roaming/Thunderbird/Profiles... I see TWO files: one that is identical to the one in the iold computer and another which I assume contains the emails I had in the new computer and have now disappeared.

How do I access that other file: xxxxxxxx.default  ?

I recently got a new computer and could not download Firefox. I have tried several different ways and keep getting the same results. On Microsoft Edge when I’d click download it would say the page can’t be reached. So, I tried Chrome, and it says that it isn’t connected to Internet. It is only when trying to download Firefox when I encounter this issue.

When adding Gmail account, google verification page keeps resetting and asking for email/phone

I've successfully added most of my gmail accounts into the Thunderbird account manager window.

But one gmail account in particular keeps failing to add.

Whenever I try to add it I get as far as the popup with a gmail login, where I would normally log in and tell google to authorize Thunderbird to access the account.

But when I enter my email address on that popup and click the "Next" button, instead of asking me for my password it just clears the field and keeps showing the log in page, asking for my email or phone number. (See screenshot)

If I type in the email address again and hit next again, the same thing happens. It always just resets instead of moving on to the password input. (But to reiterate, I have successfully added about a half dozen other gmail accounts and haven't encountered this problem with any of the others.)

At first I thought this might have been because it was a new gmail account I had just created, so I figured I'd just try again later. But I created the account at least 3 days ago now, and Thunderbird is still doing the same thing for that login page.

Any suggestions? Or is this a known bug?

Since I am unable to find any forum dedicated to add-ons I'll post my question here and hope for the best. How do I transfer my FVD Speed Dial cells in my old laptop (win 7) to Firefox in my new laptop (win 10). Please don't tell me I'm going to have to redo each one by hand. I did check the Export button on Speed Dial but it doesn't transfer the custom pictures. Is there an easier way to do this? Like maybe moving a specific file(s)? Thank you - Sharon D.
