I have a completely new profile and a new installation of Thunderbird 78.8.1 and it's great! See https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1327837 for how I got here. I now want to copy and paste my old address book to my new profile Previous help on this forum says that my old address book is in files abook.mab and history.mab but in my old profile these files are suffixed .bak (eg: abook.mab.bak) My new profile already has a few addresses - which I am happy to lose - but does not have any .bak files. For the address book it seems to have these: abook.sqlite abook.sqlite-shm abook.sqlite-wal

history.sqlite history.sqlite-shm history.sqlite-wal

Not a .mab (or .mab.bak) file to be seen.

Can I just copy and paste abook.mab.bak and history.mab.bak?

I'm in the middle of migrating to a new laptop (WIn 7 Pro to Win 10 Pro). The old one has TB 68.10.0, with Lightning. When I installed TB on the new laptop, it gave me 78. I had copied the profile folders already.

I'm having trouble with the (Google) calendar. First, it gave me no data/didn't sync and wouldn't let me do anything. I also tried importing the old one just to see, but that crashed TB. I tried unsubscribing, but that removed the calendar. I tried setting it up the old way, New, Network and pasting in the private Google link. It keeps reverting to Read Only, every time I try to do something. Then TB hangs up, doesn't display properly, and there's no response for several minutes when I attempt to close it.

I want to go back to the version that is on the old laptop, but I can't find downloads for any previous versions. Where are they?

Could you help me with the upload of an mbox file?

I have Thunderbird up and running with the extension ImportExportToolsNG.

When I use the menu Tools/ImportExportToolsNG/import mbox file nothing happens. (screen shot of menu selection attached)

I have the mbox file stored on an external disk but I see no pop up screen that enables to to find and select the mbox file.

Currently I'm not using Thunderbird as an email client. For the time being I'm using it to read and search through older gmail emails as a backup.

Hello, since migrating from Chrome to Firefox, I have used the Import Wizard to successfully transfer over my bookmarks and history, but I just can't seem to get my logins/passwords over. The wizard finishes saying that it successfully imported saved logins and passwords, but nothing shows up in the password manager. I am running Windows 10 64bit and Firefox is up to date. Anybody have any suggestions?

Thanks

Hallo, nach einem Update von Thunderbird kam durchgehend die Meldung, dass zum Abschluss des Updates der Computer neu gestartet soll. Da dies keine Änderung erbrachte, löschte ich Thunderbird aus dem Verzeichnis und kopierte den Ordner zur Sicherung. In den Ordnern zu den Profilen (.../Local/Thunderbird/Profiles) enthalten die beiden vorhandenen Profile leider keine relevanten Dateien. Nach der erneuten Installation von Thunderbird wurde auch ein neues Profil erstellt ( mit Zusatz: default). Für mich ergibt sich die Frage, wo ich mein Adressbuch sowie einige meiner Archive finden kann (ein Archiv wird angezeigt). Sofern ich die nicht auf dem Server sondern lokal abgelegt haben sollte, gibt es ein spezielles Suchkriterium dafür, kann ich ggf. neue Dateien in Thunderbird mit denen aus der Sicherung überschreiben? Schon mal vielen Dank für die Hilfe!

Gruß Thomas

Firefox worked fine for me until last week. I tried to install a new copy and I get the following message -

THE CODE EXECUTION CANNOT PROCEED BECAUSE VCRUNTIME140_1.DLL WAS NOT FOUND. REINSTALLING THE PROGRAM MAY FIX THE PROBLEM.

No matter what I do, I cannot get this to install.

It appears to install but when I open Firefox and try to navigate to a website it is dead in the water. Will not connect to internet!

Please help!

Merry Christmas Everyone. I have been using thunderbird for email with windows 7 for several years, and it does exactly what I need. One thing I definitely need is my own folders for different incoming email. No problem with windows 7 but I cannot find how to make them with windows 11 (old laptop gave up - had to buy new one). Right click on existing default folders or email name does not offer the option. All folders is ticked, as is folder pane. Hope you can help. Thanks

I want to transfer the profile from an old PC running Windows 7 to a new PC running Windows 10. I've copied the old profile to a USB stick. After much searching I've found the profile created by the new installation, but it seems to appear in two folders: AppData/Roaming/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles, and AppData/Local/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles. Should I simply substitute the old profile for both instances of the new profile? NB This message is posted from a different platform (Mac) Thanks

After upgrading Thunderbird from v68 to v78 over the weekend, everything looked fine, but then I realized some emails display badly with Windows 10 running in Dark mode. Changing the Windows settings to display apps in Light mode doesn't help (and make other parts of Windows Light instead of Dark mode).

What I'm trying to find in about:config is a flag to tell Thunderbird to run in Light mode as I can't see many of my emails. I can highlight the body, but that's just a lame workaround.

First image show how the text is unreadable because Thunderbird only changed the background layout, but not the text; Image on the right I highlighted the whole email so I could read the text.

I saw other suggestions that either require meddling with some .css file quite heavily, or installing some add-on that doesn't fix the problem.

We just need a configuration flag to prevent Thunderbird from using the Windows Dark Mode (or more generic, one that doesn't follow the Windows Light or Dark mode on us).

Thank you developers.

Since updating to the 'new look' TB I have an issue with a blurry screen. When you select an Account from the left side of the screen at the top of the folders, the information is blurred as you can see from the attached screenshot.

The messages in the folders are all clearly displayed and other areas of display don't have any problems, it is only since updating to the 'new' folder look that appears to have created this blurry image.

Someone suggested that I adjust the Windows ClearType settings which I did, but that didn't make any difference and the problem still exists. I have also just updated to the new 78.1.0 version today (1st August) but I still have the same blurry problem.

Any suggections or should this be logged as a bug ?

A day ago I did the Firefox update to 75.0. Since then I have had trouble viewing ebay items. After you do a ebay search a list of items show up. When you open an item from a search list, you get a photo of the item usually on the left side and a description below the photo item. However, below and after the description everything including other seller photos and text are on the left side of the page. Normally they are across the page from the left side to right side. But now the layout is all on the left side. Everything is against the left side only and very hard to read. For many years I have never run into this problem before. I signed off and restarted Ebay with same problem. Looked at my son's computer and the ebay layout looked correct like like mine use to. I also opened up my google chrome browser and signed onto ebay. The ebay photos and text were correctly located on the page. So it appears that the recent update to firefox will not display the correct layout format in ebay. Can I download to the previous version of firefox? I 'm using latest Firefox browser 75.0 and running Windows 10. I attached a screen shot photo.

As mentioned in [1], Firefox "Fennec" has reached "end of support" (Version 68.11.0 is the latest you can get). Its successor is Firefox Daylight (codename "Fenix"). But I can't find a place at Mozillas webservices, where I can download an APK to install Firefox Fenix on my Android mobile device.

Using Google Play is no option to me, since I want to run a privacy friendly mobile device without any Google services. Privacy is my main reason, why I would like to use Firefox on my mobile device.

@Mozilla: Please provide such an APK download location for Firefox Daylight (Fenix), as you did with Firefox Fennec!

There is already a discussion about this topic in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1293461, but this topic is about "Fennec APK download" and is marked as "solved", since a "Fennec APK downloads" had been provided. And there is https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1293483, talking about "Fennec nightly APKs".

Using https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/fenix/releases to download APKs seems to be a bit unreliable, since not every build has attached APKs.

So I start this new question, in order to find a solution for Firefox Daylight (Fenix) APK downloads.

Thanks you!
