New ThunderBird 78 install keeps wiping out my email folder at startup. How to prevent that?

The motherboard of my previous PC died, and I don't have access to the M.2 C-drive. Fortunately all my old email folder were stored on a separate harddrive, and they are backed up. Folders have over 20 years worth of emails in them, I was using Eudora before Thunderbird. Using Windows 10/64 Pro

Just installed ThunderBird 78. Confugered all the options as before. (Old profile not available, but I had screen captures of the settings). Created a directory with the same name for email folders: F:\cvrdocs\Eudora\Local Folders.

Exact same setup as before. I have about 20 historical folders with old emails, backed up. I copied them into the new computer, above directory name. But whenever I start up ThunderBird, it wipes out all the old folders, and replace them with a set of new, empty folders, the normal Inbox, Sent, etc. It is driving me insane. I need to use my old folders!

I have set ThunderBird not to check emails at startup, not to check every 10 minutes, not to delete any messages. Still the same thing (old folders deleted) is happening time after time. Should I uninstall version 78 and go back to an old version? This is not a feature, it is a major annoyance.

Please help. How can I get ThunderBird to recognise the old folders and not wipe them?

Hi all,

I want to propose a simple, but very convenient feature. The issue is when a user downloads something, then download icon appears and available to click. After clicking on this icon context menu appear with a list of downloads and "Show All Downloads" button, but without the "Clear Downloads" button! So the user has to click "Show All Downloads" to open downloads window, then click "Clear Downloads", and then close the downloads window. 4 clicks vs 2 clicks. And this is a common action, very annoying to do this every time. Can I hope to see this in Firefox someday?

Eliminate duplicate versions of Thunderbird on same computer

I have a Windows 10 laptop [Version 2004 Build 19041.388]. I’m a longtime Thunderbird user. I thought I was using Thunderbird Version 68.11.0 (x86), according to the “TB Help About” info panel. Windows Control Panel indicates that this version is 323 MB & was installed (updated) on 7/30/2020. However Windows Control Panel ALSO lists Thunderbird Version 24.3.0 (x86), Size: 48.1 MB installed on 6/29/2020. How do I resolve this situation? I am concerned that if I uninstall the Version 24.3.0 that I may lose my Thunderbird profile with all my email history & contact information and that part of version 68 may also be uninstalled and then inoperable. Any suggestions? I discovered this oddity attempting to resolve a timeout issue that intermittently occurs trying to read mail. Thought this may be part of that problem.

I thought I had completely migrated my WLM 2011 (POP3) archive folders into Thunderbird 68 with importexporttools_ng-4.1.0-tb. These currently comprise 43 folders and sub-folders with an unknown quantity of files within.

I now find upon close comparison, that just one large folder from this folder-set (comprising 40 single level sub folders, plus 23 single-level sub-folders) has been overlooked. The initial process was quick and smooth and the total number of migrated files is modest.

Does importexporttools_ng-4.1.0-tb.xpi include the option to re-select this missing file and add it to the empty folder I have since created in Local Folders rady to recieve the remaining folder-set? If not, any other suggestions from your Team?

I downloaded Firefox installer (for version 79.0) on Windows via Edge from here https://www.mozilla.org/pl/firefox/new/ Checksums of the downloaded installer are (calculated by `certutil -hashfile "Path_to_Firefox_installer" SHA256` and `certutil -hashfile "Path_to_Firefox_installer" SHA512` in Windows command line):

SHA256 caceeacec49a4d4cac94bb48266adb28bc53515345619e336c26488846717a56

SHA512 0c1ffcd219c0c788ac01064bfbb800a95990111539e7ed20c7e9b279c7502e59cef1c7b0274f57cba71bd3bf2493d579b9f7157346ad9a0821913ecba6558e02

they do not match any from https://releases.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/79.0/SHA256SUMS and https://releases.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/79.0/SHA512SUMS

When I downloaded the same installer on Windows via Firefox checksums were different than before (calculated by the same command)

SHA256 bc4dd6ce1b53b194bc95ef908278f670494dd5fb782eea2da563098e58a2db3d

SHA512 ecec87468644b2219618e21e127d54460222346fb639a11bdd31685ffcd9ce56219991a64e4144f2f80a8f88672dbad3ab4f0edda388c11c4d9bcd8446e16a8c

they match "win32/pl/Firefox Installer.exe" on "https://releases.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/79.0/SHA256SUMS" and "https://releases.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/79.0/SHA512SUMS".

What is strange the signatures of the files are identical. I downloaded installer two more times (with restarting computer in between, why not) and it gave me exact same hashes depending only on what browser i used for downloading them. Is it a known problem when downloading firefox via Edge? Is it known why this happens? Does this problem occur to you? Is Firefox downloaded via Edge safe to install?

Thanks

I am trying to make Firefox my default browser but when I go to settings to change it from Google to Firefox, Firefox does not show up in the list of available browsers to make the default. Wondering why it is not there as the app is installed from Playstore. Google, Yahoo, bing, duckduckgo and ecosia are listed but firefox is not. Tried holding down on browser window to get the browser add symbol to show as one fix suggested but that didn't work. Any suggestions?

I am on Windows 10 home. I found that I was running Thunderbird beta and could not print emails. I downloaded Thunderbird 78.1.1 but have a couple of configuration issues and would be grateful for assistance.

I am operating POP and local folders. I have files: T:\DAC\Tony's profile T:\DAC\Tony's email-outlook

In the profile there is a file abook.mab.msf - but I cannot access addresses in Thunderbird. How can I access the historical addresses?

On Thunderbird there are a number of Inbox folders? The top one contains my sub-folders, which is how I file emails. But do I have a configuration problem with the several Inbox folders & 2 Sent folders?

Attached are my Server settings & Local folder settings. Thanks for any assistance, Tony

Okay, so, quick question - I just got a new computer and installed the entire OS (MacOS) directly from my physical backup on . However, Firefox is working quite poorly. It's not loading sites properly, e.g. Facebook, and it won't load pictures on a Danish sales platform - and quite a few other places - most importantly it won't load Tinder profiles to swipe in desktop version. Damn it all to hell!

Also, several of the tabs have a weird, white line under them, and it started blinking with this weird red line in the very top of the browser.

However, if I were to reinstall Firefox altogether, would that delete all my open tabs (of which I have a couple of hundreds)? As per advice from a few geeks, I cleared my entire history to see if it made a difference - alas, the problems continued and multiplied.

If reinstalling and/or refreshing the browser will delete all my tabs - what are my options?

My daughter installed my computer and everything started as normal 4 days ago. Today when I press the Firefox icon I get told by Google 'server can not be found'. The Firefox Get Started is in the toolbar so I got in that way and went to 'Refresh Firefox' which seemed to work okay but I am still getting the Google 'server can not be found' page. What do I do now?
