Hello, I moved Thunderbird data to a new computer according to your instructions via a USB drive On the target computer everything goes well until point 9 of your instructions. "Choose to replace your current data when prompted." However, this screen does not appear. I open Thunderbird, but then only the screen to enter the email data appears. So Thunderbird does not open with complete data. What do I do? I'm wrong.

My Windows 10 desktop failed and went into a shop for repair. I have years of Thunderbird messages on it. The repair is complete and Thunderbird is working well again.

However, for several weeks I was only able to send and receive messages via my ISP Webmail. I would now like to move these messages into Thunderbird on my repaired desktop computer.

I cannot find an elegant way to do this. I know I send forward or resend all of these messages from Webmail to the main address on the desktop and then move them into the appropriate In or Out folders. But, I have downloaded all of these messages onto a flash drive and would like to use it to load the messages.

I would appreciate any advice about the best way to do this.

Thank you in advance.

Hey, I would like to move my thunderbird profile (including all the old emails) from my old PC to a new MacBook. Before I buy the MacBook, I would like to verify that this is indeed feasible. I have migrated my Thunderbird profile from PC to PC and found it very intuitive. Is it essentially the same process for migrating the profile from PC to the MacBook? I assume the folder would be slight different but there will no not be a conflict due to the data format, right? I would be grateful for a brief confirmation / some advise. Thank you! Simon

Hello Dear People,

I have been using Thunderbird to great satisfaction. When my computer of 10 1/2 years died, I started to use old laptop of my son who made me the second user. I d/l Thunderbird on my account and it all went well till a few days ago. No Thunderbird. I d/l again, profile not found/inaccessible. I did see advice here from last year, looking for the profile under Users, app data, roaming etc. but to no avail. There is no profile.

How to solve this problem? Also after d/l the set-up, the thumbnail looks strange, like half of the image as shown in the picture. I tried d/l a few times, same result. I was very content with the program. I want Thunderbird back!

Thank you for your advice! Dorith

The Debian Firefox packages available are only 115.6. Thought it would be nice to have the latest. Grabbed all the dependencies according to the Mozilla web site.

Installed Firefox 121.0 as root and placed folder into /opt, as instructed. Went through all the settings and imported my bookmarks.

Now there is a 121.0.1 upgrade available but my browser won't automagically install the upgrade. Says click here to download. So I do. I get the entire tar.bz2 bundle, which creates a full directory structure, as if I was starting over.

Can I just move a few files from that into the existing /opt/firefox directory to get the upgrade? If so, which ones?

Or, can I move few files from the existing directory into the new version, and replace the whole lot? If so, which ones?

Thanks in advance.

I have Thunderbird on two PCs. Thunderbird stopped working on my older PC, Lenovo Z40, Windows 10. I uninstalled Thunderbird on that PC and tried to reinstall. I have downloaded the set up file, but when I open it tells me I need a Microsoft safe app and sends me to Edge browser. I looked at help website but can't see how to overcome this step to get to what is described on the Tunderbird UTube video. I have downloaded the Thunderbird set up file using Edge, Chrome and Firefox browsers. Same problem each time. Thanks

Had to wipe old Win 11 due to corruption. When setting up from scratch, I use 3 gmail accounts. However when I downloaded Tbird, trying to set up myt 3 gmail accounts, Gmail will NOT authorize Tbird. I have tried all advice that I've seen on forums and on YouTubes. None work. Contacting Gmail is impossible. Forums are not providing any solutions. Does anyone have a proven fix? I appreciate your help. Thank you.

Over the last several months I struggled to get Thunderbird to allow me to set up email accounts for POP3 mail handling. For now, I have the accounts added using IMAP mail handling; however, in trying to fix the problem I removed and reinstalled Thunderbird a number of times. As a result, I seem to have lost all my contacts. To be more precise, there are no entries when I click on Address Book.

I have a dim recollection of having read that TB saves multiple Profiles and that Profiles contain many things including downloaded email and address books. I hope that is the case and that there might exist an older version of a Profile that contains my address book. If that is true, I need help finding the older Profiles, determining if they contain my address book, and recovering the address book without disturbing my current TB install.

Can anyone confirm or deny my supposition? If confirmed, can anyone tell me how to go about recovering my address book? I'm running TB v.115.7.0 on Windows 10. I believe I'm up to date on both.

TIA

I have a large number of subfolders in my @gmail.com/All Mail. Using version 102 and all previous versions for many years with few problems. I have tried to update to SuperNova a couple of times. It takes my All Mail folder and divides it into two identical 'Archives/@gmail.com/All Mail' folders and half of my subfolders are in one of them and the others are in the second one. There is no rhyme or reason as to which ones it decides to seperate as far as I can tell. It makes it time consuming and inconvenient to find what i want, especially as it now runs off the page despite choosing Compact view. Why is this happening, and how can I fix it?
