I do not want to erase my emails that go back several years. Someone from the Community advised me to not use thumbdrive, so I bought an external hd. I have read others' problems and I do not want to create problems. But my laptop is running out of room. Can I store local folders on the external hd to free up space on my laptop's hd? If I move EVERYTHING to the external, will Thunderbird still be on my laptop? I sort of need walk-through help because I am not familiar with doing computer things.

'I already wrote but should say I'm on MAC not pc...'

I recently changed all my pop to imap.. It's been a disaster...I was not able to send or receive from any of my 3 computers after the change. It took me days of all my possible help "passing the buck" "not our end": a)my spam protection people, b)internet provider c)email domain hosts (2 of them- just for fun)

And, of course, the no tech support Thunderbird (fun part of the equation).... there is also a password problem somehow which I bypassed smtp finally using port 25 and 2525 unsecured...

and I now can send and receive...WOW.

I'm pretty much an expert after a full week of 8-12 hour days... This all happened because I was getting occasional failure to send bounce backs...thought I'd fix it...

Anyway current problems are: 1) working with our spam protector tech transitioning from my very happy pop life to imap: ALL my message folders (15 years worth of business email) in one box were deleted..

2)In my other domain all my message they seem to be there but are greyed out, labeled "IN BOX bla bla..."

Is it possible to recover these and how? I've looked in "Profile Folder" "Show in Finder" and some seem to be there... how can I pull out these folders and sub folders that I depend on for my work?

Is there anyone to help me??? Thank you.

My computer crashed and when I launched Thunderbird it came up with opening screen (Set up an existing account). I'm hoping the data and setting are still there. Is there a way to bypass the new account and get to old email?

Or since I'm setting up a new computer can I just follow directions in "Moving Thunderbird to a New Computer"?

Checked box for 'do not ask again' on stop unresponsive script dailogue, now facebook page does not load... Help!

I'm not sure exactly where this question should go, so apologies if I picked the wrong category. As far as I can tell, it fits into 'other problems': So I was getting an 'unresponsive script on page, do you want to stop it' dialogue for a Facebook page I frequent. Got sick of telling FF to stop the script every time, so I checked the 'do not ask again' box, hoping it would automatically just stop the script whenever it became a problem. Well, it's working a little too well. Now the page loads zero content. I'm just wondering how to 'undo' checking that box. Is there maybe a line in about:config I can look for, some setting I can adjust, to reset the 'do not ask again' option on 'stop unresponsive script' dialogues? Thanks in advance for any help!

Hello, I have a small issue. A while back I tweaked the settings and prefs of about:config, and in that, I forced Firefox to always automatically access every site with HTTPS instead of HTTP. I did this as an added security feature for a friend, but that was a while ago. Now, I have noticed that she can't acess her e-mail, or a lot of other sites.I already reset firefox, but all that did was reset the exceptions, now its asking for an exception everytime. But thats not the problem even IF I add the exception, the entire Yahoo site messes up. ALL graphics and everything are disabled. All you see is raw Text data and hyperlinks that are all broken. It works fine if I access another browser and it connects normally. But no matter what, it keeps trying to connect HTTPS. I don't really remember what settings I changed, and I would like to revert it back. Any help would be appreciated.
