The motherboard of my previous PC died, and I don't have access to the M.2 C-drive. Fortunately all my old email folder were stored on a separate harddrive, and they are backed up. Folders have over 20 years worth of emails in them, I was using Eudora before Thunderbird. Using Windows 10/64 Pro

Just installed ThunderBird 78. Confugered all the options as before. (Old profile not available, but I had screen captures of the settings). Created a directory with the same name for email folders: F:\cvrdocs\Eudora\Local Folders.

Exact same setup as before. I have about 20 historical folders with old emails, backed up. I copied them into the new computer, above directory name. But whenever I start up ThunderBird, it wipes out all the old folders, and replace them with a set of new, empty folders, the normal Inbox, Sent, etc. It is driving me insane. I need to use my old folders!

I have set ThunderBird not to check emails at startup, not to check every 10 minutes, not to delete any messages. Still the same thing (old folders deleted) is happening time after time. Should I uninstall version 78 and go back to an old version? This is not a feature, it is a major annoyance.

Please help. How can I get ThunderBird to recognise the old folders and not wipe them?

I recently moved my domain from onewebhostinghub.com to Network Solutions (along with my website). Network Solutions gave me instructions on how to set up my T-Bird email with them, which works fine. However, they had me create a new "account" in T-Bird rather than edit my existing one. I now realize I have many saved emails in the old TB "account" I need to move over the "new" one. Any suggestions on how to do that?

Hi all,

I want to propose a simple, but very convenient feature. The issue is when a user downloads something, then download icon appears and available to click. After clicking on this icon context menu appear with a list of downloads and "Show All Downloads" button, but without the "Clear Downloads" button! So the user has to click "Show All Downloads" to open downloads window, then click "Clear Downloads", and then close the downloads window. 4 clicks vs 2 clicks. And this is a common action, very annoying to do this every time. Can I hope to see this in Firefox someday?

Eliminate duplicate versions of Thunderbird on same computer

I have a Windows 10 laptop [Version 2004 Build 19041.388]. I’m a longtime Thunderbird user. I thought I was using Thunderbird Version 68.11.0 (x86), according to the “TB Help About” info panel. Windows Control Panel indicates that this version is 323 MB & was installed (updated) on 7/30/2020. However Windows Control Panel ALSO lists Thunderbird Version 24.3.0 (x86), Size: 48.1 MB installed on 6/29/2020. How do I resolve this situation? I am concerned that if I uninstall the Version 24.3.0 that I may lose my Thunderbird profile with all my email history & contact information and that part of version 68 may also be uninstalled and then inoperable. Any suggestions? I discovered this oddity attempting to resolve a timeout issue that intermittently occurs trying to read mail. Thought this may be part of that problem.

The last update of Firefox Android completely broke base functionalities such as tabs, and you now have to go into sliding sub-menues just to open up new tabs, or even switch between tabs.

For the longest time, I've been trying to stave off using Chrome, even as more and more pages seem to flat-out not work, but with this latest update, I really can't excuse using Firefox anymore, as even basic usage now becomes a constant back-and-forth, trying to fight against the application itself.

Is there any way to resolve this, or am I forced to migrate?

I have created a .vcf file from windows live mail. A number of my contacts have 2 email addresses listed on the .vcf file as; EMAIL;PREF;INTERNET:xxxxx@gmail.com EMAIL;INTERNET:xxxxx@yyy.com

When I import the file into Thunderbird (68.11.0) only the first email address appears. Why doesn't the second email address go into 'Additional email'? I would appreciate any advice/help on how to get both addresses into Thunderbird address book.

Thunderbird 78.1.0 Won't Sync With Comcast E-Mail.

Thunderbird version 78.1.0 won't sync at all. Error message: "Unable to log in at server. Probably wrong configuration, user name, or password." I KNOW my user name and password are correct. I didn't make stupid upper case/lower case or spelling errors with my user name or password and they work just fine with Comcast web based e-mail. First, I used Thunderbird automatic configuration without success. Then I got server settings from Comcast and CAREFULLY did Thunderbird manual configuration several times but got the same error each time. I even contacted Comcast for technical assistance several times, but they were useless idiots, as usual. I also tried uninstalling and reinstalling Thunderbird, but that also didn't help. I'm running Windows 10 with the latest updates installed.

Hey

I've copied thunderbird folders from appData/local/localLow/roaming, and then pasted them in the same spot on new pc. Most of my account works except for few. The google ones seems to be fine, but my private not. When I 1st set them up when I send/received 1st email I had certificate pop up to accept which I did and I could use it. But now it does not give that option.

Initially I had

``` Sending of the message failed. Unable to communicate securely with peer: requested domain name does not match server's certificate. The configuration related to xxx.com must be corrected. ``` Now I had no idea how to do it, so I went to settings>certificate manager and I simply deleted the cerfs. But sadly thunderbird did not re-ask me to add them again.

Then I went to appdata found certs files and deleted them there by hand. Still no luck.

I'm out of ideas now, I don't want to delete accounts/create again as its a bit of pain...

Can any1 suggest any workaround? How to force tb to reinitialize account?

Okay, so, quick question - I just got a new computer and installed the entire OS (MacOS) directly from my physical backup on . However, Firefox is working quite poorly. It's not loading sites properly, e.g. Facebook, and it won't load pictures on a Danish sales platform - and quite a few other places - most importantly it won't load Tinder profiles to swipe in desktop version. Damn it all to hell!

Also, several of the tabs have a weird, white line under them, and it started blinking with this weird red line in the very top of the browser.

However, if I were to reinstall Firefox altogether, would that delete all my open tabs (of which I have a couple of hundreds)? As per advice from a few geeks, I cleared my entire history to see if it made a difference - alas, the problems continued and multiplied.

If reinstalling and/or refreshing the browser will delete all my tabs - what are my options?

I am regularly using the latest version of Firefox but after doing some research online I decided to reinstall an older version of firefox by clicking Firefox 50.1.0.dmg, a file I found in my downloads as well as well as in the applications folders on my mac.

I was amazed to find when I started this older version of firefox fresh off the reinstall that all my tabs from the last time I used it (perhaps as long as three years ago) popped open and all my bookmarks and history were there as well. However this was short-lived because when i closed it and sought to restore the tabs I was unsuccessful and the bookmarks and history were gone too.

I then thought it would be possible to recreate this by using Time Machine and restore Firefox 50.1.0.dmg file from a recent backup but this did not bring back the tabs.

So I was wondering if this was simply a fluke and if not (is there such a thing as a fluke event when it comes to computers?!), why can I not recreate the event using Time Machine?
