Hello, there is the note for FF 102 Release:While Bug 1771084 does not represent a specific vulnerability that was fixed, we recommend anyone rebasing patches to include it. 102 branch

Patch 1 and 2. 91 Branch: Patch 1 and 2 (Despite saying Parts 2 and 3, there is no Part 1). To clarify, so the current 102 release of FF does not 'contain any patch for that bug 1771084, and it's recommended manually to install these patches? Or they are already incorporated in the release?

For reasons that will likely never be known Thunderbird stopped yesterday. Clicking on the icon showed the spinning icon for a second or two and then ended without the application starting. It had been running flawlessly for several years.

I checked with task manager, nothing from Thunderbird. I restarted. Same problem.

So, I found and installed the beta version which is working fine but I've lost my address book and message filters.

I can re-create the filters easily, but would prefer not to have to re-create the addresses. Is there a way to find the old address book(s) and use them?

Thanks -dmd-

Today I upgraded from TB 92 (ish, not sure exactly) to 102 and am having a problem with unified folders.

I have five email accounts in TB, and use unified folders. In the previous version, if I clicked on a single account under Inbox, I would see emails in the inbox for just that account. Clicking on the top-level Inbox node would show me all emails in the inboxes of all five accounts.

However, in v102, when I click on the top-level Inbox node, the messages panel does not change. Whatever was there before remains.

If I click on the top-level Inbox node, then restart TB, which starts it up with that node selected, I get a panel that has various buttons for setting things up, about TB, etc.

Is there a way to go back to the old behaviour, and have the top-level Inbox node show all inbox messages?

Thanks

I am on windows 10. My Thunderbird was upgraded automatically from 91.11.0 to 102.0. I've lost all my emails, folders, accounts, and profiles, including Giganews (usenet). I tried re-installing TB 91.11.0 and restoring my profile folder, but I still cannot access my old folders, accounts, or profiles.

What did I do wrong? Is there any way to get back to a working Thunderbird? I have numerous backups of my old Thunderbird profile folder.

Hi,

I had to update from an older version of TB to the latest due to the gmail security changes. I had an security/authentication issue that was brilliantly solved by a contributor here.

I have now realised that the update caused another problem ... my address book is empty. I have been doing much searching and reading about this and it seems that the problem is that there was a failure to convert the old .mab address file to the new .sqlite address file that the newer TB version uses. What I could not really find is the definitive answer.

I do not have any .mab.bak files in my profile folder. I have:

  • abook.mab(44KB and filled with addresses)
  • abook.sqlite (256KB and filled with zeros)
  • history.mab (77KB and filled with addresses)
  • history.sqlite (256KB and filled with zeros)

From what I read, the option open to me is to downgrade TB (all the others appear to rely on the .mab.bak files), export the address book, upgrade TB again and then import the exported address book. What I'm hoping is that someone here know a simpler way in which I can get the new TB to convert or "see" the old .mab file.

Many thanks.

As said in the title, both Firefox, Firefox DE and Chrome will open and crash/close instantly on my new Lenovo Legion PC with Windows 11 installed on it. Only Edge works, and so far I've tried a lot of solutions : -Restart PC -Uninstall, delete files and fresh install both programs -The MSCONFIG thing and unchecking start programs -Every update Windows update recommended me -Entire new windows install, without any linking with my previous pc (which had the same problem two times already, both fixed by returning to a previous version of windows)

I believed it was a ram problem with my previous pc because it was old, but this one is completely new and has the same problem, while there's nothing except my microsoft account that is common to both PCs

I'm completely lost, help me please (writing this on another PC)

I guess this could be considered "migration"... How can I sync the email between different machines, as & when I switch to use of a different installation of Thunderbird?

Here's my current setup: I have 2 laptops, and each is set up as a dual-boot with both Windows 10 Pro, and AntiX Linux. That makes a total of 4 operating systems, and I have Thunderbird installed on all 4.

I'm not sure how useful this is, for framing an answer to my question re. syncing, but here's extra info: I keep all my personal data on encrypted external hard drives, which I access using VeraCrypt. External is so I never lose my data if a given machine dies. Encrypted is so, even if the physical external hard drive is stolen, they can't steal the personal data. (I maintain a cloned backup external drive.) Today, I chose a location on the primary external hard drive, and created a folder named "Thunderbird email". I'm using the AntiX v19.4 OS right now, so I've set that new folder as the Local Folders location within this installation of Thunderbird.

I got this far, and then realized I need some guidance from more experienced users. So, I located this support page, and signed up for asking my questions about Thunderbird. Thanks in advance, for any help you can give me.

I am moving Thunderbird to a new Windows 11 (64 bit) machine, and downloaded Thunderbird 91.10.0. I used a new profile when I created my two email accounts. But there are several problems: 1) when I exit, Thunderbird doesn't close down completely 2) when I try to look at addons.thunderbird.net or Release Notes from within Thunderbird, the new window never loads (on the other hand, this means that there are no add-ons to confuse the issue) 3) Thunderbird occassionally crashes. I can send you Troubleshooting Information if you need it; it means nothing to me.

The above is the simple version of the problem -- I have been working on this for 2 days, and am no closer to a solution. Any help would be appreciated.

I've been happily using Thunderbird for email for many years. Recently, the gmail OAuth2 requirement has made my POP3 accounts quit working. Currently on 38.5 for Windows 10.

Following various posts, I've tried to convert two specific email accounts to imap, and things are not going well.

My primary email is already imap and works fine. I've tried multiple times to convert the other two, and my current state is I've deleted those two accounts entirely (via Account Actions). When I try to install Existing Account, I eventually get to the point where the server config seems correct, but hitting "Done" results in the above message. I'd be surprised if imap.gmail.com can only support one email address. The emails are named differently, and use different passwords. Imap is enabled via browser based access to both accounts.

Incoming server imap.gmail.com:993 Outgoing smtp.gmail.com:465
