Help reading large ics file into TB 102.2.2

I am migrating back to TB after seven years with zimbra and so have to import exports from zimbra. I am running TB 102.2.2 in an daily updated Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS machine with a AMD® Ryzen 7 5800h processor and 64Gb of RAM (and oodles of spare HD space).

My calendar ics file is pretty huge, 23.2Mb and when I try to import it into TB TB seems to hang (get the "quit or wait" message in Ubuntu). I'm not surprised as I guess this is an antisocially large ICS file. I can read it with some roll my own R code and see that it has 419,184 lines and, somewhat reassuringly, R detects 11,845 "BEGIN:VEVENT" lines and 11,845 "END:VEVENT" lines so I think I can conclude that I have that many events!

I can apply my mind and clunky programming skills to R and split this file into smaller ones but I thought I'd ask a few questions here before I start that:

Q1: do I copy everything from "BEGIN:VCALENDAR" to the first "BEGIN:VEVENT" as a header for each smaller file I create?

Q2: does anyone have any advice about how small and therefore how many small files I should create to be fairly safe for TB to read them OK?

Q3: am I correct that I don't have to worry about date ordering the entries? I can just take them in the order they come in the big file?

Many thanks in advance. Rather nice to be coming back to TB, I always liked it but wrongly thought it was in organisational peril seven years ago. Should have stayed!

Hello,

I am trying to delete two folders from a mailing account: Folders and Labels (picture 1). As you can see, the two folders are displayed in italic and cannot be accessed via the subscription menu (picture 2). Neither refreshing, nor repairing the folders helps. I have tried deleting the .mfg files corresponding to both the folders and the profile under /profiles//ImapMail but they are all regenerated upon re-launching the app. If I turn off Account settings/Server settings/"Check for new messages at startup", the folders cease to be regenerated upon re-launch after deletion (picture 3). I suspect my issue to be server-side, which assumption is further supported by the error message I receive when trying to compact the folder in question with startup message check on (picture 4. Do excuse the quality, print screening the prompt was not possible). Potentially relevant information: The two folders in question might be referencing two functions of identical names available within the proton-mail web-client (picture 5). I am however not using these functions. I am using proton-mail bridge 2.2.2.

Can you please help me resolve this issue?

I've just rebooted and I've lost two windows with thirty tabs, or something.

When I started Firefox, there's nothing in the Recently Closed [Tabs, Windows]

Reading online, I see that Firefox should be writing some files to the sessionstore-backup directory, like these:

recovery.jsonlz4: the windows and tabs in your currently live Firefox session (or, if Firefox crashed at the last shutdown and is still closed, your last session) recovery.baklz4: a backup copy of recovery.jsonlz4 previous.jsonlz4: the windows and tabs in your last Firefox session upgrade.jsonlz4-build_id: the windows and tabs in the Firefox session that was live at the time of your last update

, but I only find recovery.jsonlz4 and recovery.baklz4 and both are tracking current time, which means they are getting data from the currently opened Firefox.

These are the only files I find in this directory.

Where are the other files supposed to have gone?

Thunderbird is forcing auto update to .2.2 but tells me it can not find 90 folders.

I eased into first v102 with no problems, and I think the one that you had automatically overwritten was 102.1.0 that now wants to auto update to 102.2.2 but tells me it can not find 90 folders. (If it was the one that I used last time, why would the folders suddenly be "lost"? Later I realized that your procedure had apparently overwritten the version that was having no problems)

I sampled a couple and apparently all 90 of the folders are there and have contents, but I do not know how to follow the advice, which was something like 'make sure they are there then <the part I do not understand so don't know what to do>.

WhenEVER I figure out what to do, I will have to do it 90 times apparently. That is going to be a royal waste of time, when what I really need to do right now is move emails out of GMail and Hotmail because my space on their servers is getting very tight. So of course NOW is when I have to hit this snag! Many of those can't-be-found folders are where I need to move emails to, but, in the words of Murphy's Law or maybe one of its corollaries, "Whatever you want to do, you have to do something else first."

This time noodling around I found the "Before moving from 91 to 102" advice, but only after getting to the point of "Restart to upgrade to 102.2.2," so I have no way to postpone the current update.

THEN I decided to make a duplicate copy of whatever version opened tonight, in order to see if I can open it without having to submit to automatic upgrade, which caused the problem. but it now shows 102.2.2. It has apparently overwritten whatever was there before; it's not in the trash, so I can't go back to whatever was there in order to back up items before making the upgrade. (Hint: make safe upgrade steps available BEFORE forcing an automatic upgrade. (When you want to force an automatic upgrade, supply cautionary advice before writing the code to be automatic

Oh, wait! I DID keep a backup install file for 102.1.0. (I had figured out to do that when I had problems makig the transition to the first or second three-digit version, since that was when I learned that often you force these upgrades without sufficient preparation for us common folk.) But there's no way I can run it to find and back up profile and files before your automatic process overwrites it again.

I have spent an extra hour and need to go to sleep. Therefore I will quit Thunderbird and obviously will have to hassle with this all over again, especially since it is now Sunday and I doubt that there will be any extensive help for another 30 or more hours.
