Importing Eudora 7.1.0.9 to Thunderbird 78 and move from old Windows 7 computer to a new Windows 10 computer

Currently I have Eudora 7.1.0.9 on a Windows 7 computer. I’m getting a new computer with Windows 10. Since Eudora is no longer supported I’m looking to switch to Thunderbird 78 (which I gather is the latest version). Will Thunderbird 78 import all my Eudora 7.1.0.9 files? If it will, am I correct in assuming that I’d need to install Thunderbird 78 on my current Windows 7 computer and import the Eudora files to it? Then how do I transfer the new Thunderbird on my Windows 7 computer to my Windows 10 computer?

Sorry if topic not quite right.

When backing up Thunderbird - every month or so (for many years) to a separate HDD - always thought that address book was within the -- Roaming - Thunderbird - Folder. Can anyone say please, where to find the address book on the HDD as I now think, to the cost of my wife's PC's faulty HDD, it has to be exported for back up as it appears not(?) to be automatically backed up when backing up Thunderbird. Previously, not sure how long ago, I seem to remember content of emails being shown within the Thunderbird Folder, appears not to be so currently.

My wife is a little upset because my misunderstanding has caused her the loss of her email address list. In future both on mine and her PCs I I think I'll have to create folders header "E Mail Address Backup" - am I wrong?

Thanks in anticipation

Restoring a saved profile

I have Windows 10, version 1903. I recently backed up my Mozilla Roaming and Local profiles to an external drive before replacing the hard drive in my laptop.

After replacing my hard drive with a new one, I restored an earlier image file of my computer in order to put back all my data onto the new drive.

Then I did a Fresh Start, effectively doing a new install of Windows 10 (v.1903).

(As far as I can tell, my old Firefox data was deleted during the Fresh Start reinstall.)

I now did a new install of Firefox onto my computer. After I opened it I synced. Because my favicons were not restored (a generic globe icon shows in their place instead), I'd like to load in my old saved profile and make that my default profile.

The problem: So I tried copying and pasting the saved profile ("bxfz7tby.default" ) back into the new Mozilla Roaming and Local profiles (e.g, into "C:\Users\,username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\", but I can't get Firefox to access them. Instead, it only accesses the new profile it created.

I did an uninstall and tried it again, but all I ended up doing is creating another new profile. Now when I go to About:Profiles (see image), the default-release and default profiles listed don't seem to exist anymore (they aren't loadable, and they can't be found using the filepath noted there), and the actual backup profiles that I copied from my portable drive into Mozilla and that I actually see in File Explorer, doesn't show up as a profile choice.

How can I restore my old backed up profile? And if I do restore it successfully, will that also restore my missing favicons?

I have a whole slew of tabs I use daily and Firefox is set to reload them whenever I restart Firefox. Now with version 78 it tells me it has to reinstall and won't keep my tabs, in other words I have to waste time setting all 200 of them up again. Several times a day it nags me to update and there is no option to tell it to Shut Up. If Firefox can't be bothered to provide smoother upgrades, I can't be bothered to upgrade.

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?

The last update of Firefox Android completely broke base functionalities such as tabs, and you now have to go into sliding sub-menues just to open up new tabs, or even switch between tabs.

For the longest time, I've been trying to stave off using Chrome, even as more and more pages seem to flat-out not work, but with this latest update, I really can't excuse using Firefox anymore, as even basic usage now becomes a constant back-and-forth, trying to fight against the application itself.

Is there any way to resolve this, or am I forced to migrate?

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.

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?
