I recently had to re-install Kubuntu 20.04 on a laptop. In the process of setting up Thunderbird, the installation process said it had found address books and asked if I wanted to connect them. Sounded like a time-saver, so I said "Yes." What got connected were several completely irrelevant files, most CSV contacts from my cell phone, but the extensive .mab file from the old version of Thunderbird was not there.

I have found some proposed solutions that tell me to

 >> shut down Thunderbird,
 >> rename the abook.sqlite files in my profile folder,
 >> copy to the old abook.mab file (which I have on a backup disk) into my profile folder, and
 >> restart Thunderbird, which will than automatically convert the old .mab file to the new .sqlite format.

That doesn't work. First problem is, I don't have a "profile" folder. I do have a profile.ini FILE which points to two other folders named (approximately) a1b2c3d4.default and z9y8x7w5-default-release (I've changed the exact names, but the name format is as shown).

Second problem is, my a1b2c3d4.default folder (which, in older versions, was where my abook.mab file was found) had no .sqlite files. My z9y8x7w5-default-release folder has several such files but named abook-4.sqlite, abook-16.sqlite, and abook-17.sqlite. They are all shown as 256 KB. When I added the old abook.mab file to that .default-release folder, it did produce an abook.sqlite file, also shown as 256 KB. But the old abook.mab file's content does not appear when I restart Thunderbird and look at the address books. No abook.sqlite file was created in my a1b2c3d4.default folder.

The references I've found so far appear to be for Windows installations, so I'm hoping someone will have suggestions more suitable to the Linux environment.

Firefox version: 102.0 (64-bit) System: Windows 10 21H2

I recently downloaded a file that may have had some sort of virus or malware. The file came up negative in Windows Defender and Malwarebytes but I deleted it anyways; however, I still get a download popup every time I open Firefox telling me that "This file contains a virus or malware." I've cleared the download library and browser history (cookies, cache, etc.) but I still get the popup from the Firefox.

Is there any known fix for this? Thanks!

This is so bizarre because it just started happening today.

Basically, I can't dismiss this one notification you see below. I can click on Dismiss or Dismiss All a hundred times and nothing happens.

I read on a thread from last year that another guy was having the same problem but he emphasized that it only happens with Zoom events. This reminder is a Zoom event so I wonder if it's related?

Any help would be appreciated!

I had set up a userContent.css file in the past to pull up and fetch an image on my computer to display as a background on the homepage. It worked and did it's job until recently, when I had recently relocated a lot of my files around on my computer. I have redirected everything to where I want it to look, including the userContent.css file to the new location for the image I want as the background. Firefox loads the .css file correctly, and recognizes the file existing, but it won't load the image itself for some odd reason. It states it "may not load or link the file" because of a security error, and thus, can't load the image. I never had to deal with this before. How can I get Firefox to be able to load my image like I want it to? I have screenshots that I can provide, but this site doesn't want to upload them at the moment.

Hi,

We use a cloud-based ERP system. To access it, we use a bookmark for users to get to the initial login screen in Firefox. There has been a change in the login screen that will require us to use a different URL. We have about 75 PCs with many having multiple user profiles for Firefox that need the new URL.

I know how to quickly copy and paste the bookmark by remoting into a PC and then doing a copy/paste from the bookmarks toolbar on my PC to the bookmark toolbar on the remote PC.

I could also create a procedure for users to create their own bookmark but I think some users would find that a challenge.

I'd like to make this process more of a silent install but haven't figured out how to manage it.

We're currently all Windows 10 Pro using Firefox v101.0.1 64-bit.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

I'm not exactly sure what this is called. Maybe it's in the cache, but I don't know. One of the fastest timesavers I have is that I use the Firefox url feature that makes suggestions as soon as I start typing a url. I pull up dozens, possibly hundreds of articles that I refer to frequently this way, so that I don't have to bother bookmarking them. I don't clear the cache, to keep these references from disappearing. I have to move computers now. My longtime mac is not working well anymore. Is there any way to bring these url suggestions with me when I migrate? Thank you.
