Can't find Address books after upgrade to TB 78.5, copied from 68.4.1 PC

I've got my email functioning in TB 78.5, apart from being able to use my address books, on my new (to me) laptop on which I've installed Windows 7 (at my own risk!). The old laptop used TB 68.4.1 (32-bit) and I copied the profile folder onto a usb stick to transfer across to my new one, using Profile Manager on the new laptop.

I've spent several hours trying to work out how to get my old address books, but have got nowhere really, apart from realising that initially the original new version of TB caused similar problems, which presumably have now been ironed out, and that current solutions to my problem appear to be lacking.

My old address books uses .mab files, which I was given to understand were automatically converted by TB 78, but this appears not to have been the case. I have found just one abook.sqlite file, but nothing relating to my other ones (up to 6)

Can anyone offer me guidance on how to recover my other address books, please, in a bid to save my sanity?

Thanks.

Thunderbird 78 upgrade. Lost data (win10)

After 15 years of faithful service Thunderbird has betrayed me, just after I made my annual donation too!. In response to an invitation this morning I upgraded to V. 78 expecting the transition to be seamless from v. 68 where I had the latest upgrade installed. I had to create a new profile but was then unable to find any folders or messages relating to the old profile. I can see the data is still there in the original Default profile but when I try to run that profile a message tells me it can't be done. I've searched everywhere for a simple solution but nothing I've tried seems to work. I tried uninstalling v.78 then re-installing the previous version but it refused to run telling me a newer version had amended the profile. I have used PCs professionally but now aged 81 I'm beginning to feel things may have moved a bit too fast for me. Is there a simple answer, please? My wife uses Thunderbird as much as me and is equally dismayed to be unable to find previous correspondence, address books etc.

Hi,

I have a Yahoo mail account. I'm trying to sign in to this account on Thunderbird, but I can't. I'm getting the error "Unable to log in at server. Probably wrong configuration, username or password." The username and password are correct, as I have just signed in on a browser. But on Thunderbird it's not letting me sign in.

Originally the auto-generated settings gave me the inbound.att.net and outbound.att.net servers. Those weren't working, so I tried using the POP settings here https://help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN3217.html and that didn't work, so I tried using IMAP settings here https://help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN4075.html . Those didn't work either. I'm stuck.

I have not enabled 2-step verification on this account. I don't know if anything has changed with Yahoo mail, I hardly Yahoo mail anymore and mostly want access to this account so I can access old emails that I might need to access.

Thanks for any help

I recently upgraded from 68 to 78 versions of TB. Now my address book is hosed!! (Not happy)

I read the various 'solutions' for this error code/implementation and STILL cannot get my addresses to display correctly. (See image attached)

Yes, I tried renaming the abook/history files from .bak to .mab with no luck (after shutting down TB and restarting it). Still, no luck.

I saw a 'solution' where we are able to re-install ver. 68, but cannot find a link taking me to the download for that level. Only release notes..?

I've been using this tool for YEARS without any flaws. Now this! Not happy.

Hopefully someone can direct me to a solution that works. Very frustrating...

Mac Thunderbird: imap connections refused

I've used Thunderbird on my Windows computers for years. I just purchased a Mac and was less than satisfied with Mac Mail, especially since I have multiple email servers. So, I installed Thunderbird. It has worked well for well over a month. Saturday, I started getting connection refused for all 3 of my imap email servers. All still work fine on my Windows computer (I still have it).

Support with AppleCare this morning fixed my Mac Mail, but not Thunderbird. She tried, but... they don't support 3rd party apps. Seems to me this is an Mac problem since Thunderbird still connects on Windows perfectly.

Hints please. Thunderbird email is dead on my Mac. I'll be checking in on my Windows Thunderbird for notifications.

Hello,

I have my most important bookmarks and folders in my Bookmark Toolbar. Today when I turn on the computer a bookmark folder that I don't want on the toolbar is now showing up and it's not letting me delete it. Weirdly, when I go into manage my bookmarks and look at the Bookmark Toolbar folder this folder doesn't show as being part of the toolbar. When I go to the folder in the bookmark manager screen it won't let me delete it. If I try to move it into another folder it just creates a copy of the folder and does nothing for the copy of the folder in the toolbar that I'm trying to remove. How do I get rid of this folder in my toolbar?

Ever since IE changed to tabs on top firefox coders followed like mindless automatons without any regard to/for Mozilla community and users. We are sick and tired of being ignored. We want/need tabs bellow address bar. Now, tell us how to simply get tabs below address bar or tell the coders to provide us with the option. And, we don’t care about any excuses as previously provided or outright ignored by them.
