The 89.0 (64-bit) update to Firefox is a joke! When are fixes coming or is there any way for me to return to the previous edition. I cannot get used to this charade.

I think that Firefox is by far the most superior browser and this update is just so not Firefox. It hurts. It hurts really bad!

Hi all,

I want to migrate my current email account to Gmail. Unfortunately, it is not possible to import email folders into Gmail.

Therefore, I was thinking of using Thunderbird to first backup all my email folders, then set up my Gmail account and in a last step, import my Thunderbird backup file into Thunderbird again.

I'd appreciate your help on how to do this.

Stefan

Cannot use profile from old laptop on new one

My Win 10 Pro laptop failed, power supply, probably. I took the drive out of it and want to use the profile from it on my new Win 10 Pro laptop. I have installed TB several times, then uninstalled and tried to clear all evidence of it on the new machine, because it wasn't showing my old stuff.

I finally used the process in this article - https://www.groovypost.com/howto/recover-restore-thunderbird-email-profile-backup/ - that seems to match others I found.

I then copied Thunderbird directory from the old drive to AppData in my new machine. Then I started TB with Profile Manager and created a profile using that AppData/Roaming directory.

When I then start TB, I see a momentary count of messages that looks right. But that goes away, and it starts downloading from my email provider - CenturyLink.

Ultimately, the new messages are in local folder in C:/ProgramData, not the roaming directory in %ALLDATA%.

So I tried changing the local directory in Settings/Server Settings for the account and get this message -

The Local Directory path "C:\Users\Vern\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\z4922dk3.default-release" is not suitable for message storage. Please choose another directory.

I've not seen anything to help with this situation, so will appreciate greatly finding a way to recover things.

Help! Today, I updated from v. 88.x to the latest v. 89.x of Firefox for Mac OS. Unfortunately, the new look and interface of v. 89 is very difficult for me to see and use. The menu bar items (text and icons) are too small, and everything is too small, too light and low-contrast gray with no borders ,etc. I've been using Firefox for Mac OS for at least 15 years, and I've never been so dissatisfied by the look of an upgrade. I am running on a Mac Pro with OS X 10.14.6.

Having played with the various preference menus in v. 89.x that I could find, I am not able to find settings to return the look to that of the previous version. Is there a "theme" to make the interface user-friendly again, or do I need to actually revert to v. 88.x? If I need to go back to v. 88.x, how do I do that and preserve all of my original settings, bookmark, etc.? Thank you!

Whenever I used to download pdf files there would automatically be a number added in paranthesis. Example- test.pdf (1) and the next one I would download would show up test.pdf (2). Made sepearting all of my files very easy. Now, however, every download is just "test.pdf." No number automatically added. How can I go back to how it used to work?

Netflix quit working today. It said my browser version was no longer supported. I updated from v.86 to v.89. It looks like crap. New tab + icon is gone. "tab bar" is not transparent or dark mode. And guess what: Netflix still doesn't work. That's probably their problem but now I have no Netflix, weird crap on the whatever bar, add-on icons are gone, and this big gaudy tab bar.

How do I rollback to a previous version? I'd rather not have excuses or sales pitches as to why 89 is better from the newer-is-better crowd. For me 89 is NOT better.

So, how do I rollback to a previous version?
