I imported all my bookmarks from Internet Explorer 8 but not all of them came through. Then I exported the HTML file from IE and imported it into Firefox and all of them came through but got added onto the initial (partial) list. How do I remove the partial list of bookmarks so that I can avoid duplication ? Or how do I delete all the bookmarks from Firefox in one go so that I can import again from the IE HTML file  ?Thanks.

I have Windows XP Professional English SP3 installed in an Oracle Virtual Machine. For some reason or another, Internet Explorer stopped browsing to pages having SSL (https). I went to several web pages on the internet. They said this and that, but I managed to narrow it down to the SSL part. I recently received an update to Oracle Virtual Box, so that can also be the culprit. I also have another XP Professional English SP3 virtual machine with no additional software installed besides antivirus software, and in that machine, I had installed a pretty fresh version of Mozilla Firefox, so I tested it, and there was no problem at all surfing, but Internet Explorer refused to display the web page. This is why I would like to have a link to the above mentioned version of Firefox, as you stated in another thread that that particular version was the last one to be supported by Windows XP.


Thanks in advance! Thomas J. Ekman SWEDEN

Since this new version got updated without my consent, i have lost my add-ons which annoys me greatly.

I am getting pop-up adds again, where as the version i was running previously they did not show up.

I had my old version customised just the way i like it, and i want it back. I am unphased about "bugs, glitches and security issues" as i trust my anti-virus to do its job. I would just like the version i had back the way i had it. This new version is not good and looks like google chrome, and if i wanted chrome, i would download it

Hello guys, I'm a thunderbird fanatic and use it even at work managing 10+ accounts. Up to Thunderbird 68, all was super fine:

The massive profile with 60+ folder was well organized with a handful of incredible add-ons to: - color folders - customize color account background - manage folder sorting The workflow was smooth and very productive: the folder colored to my like, the new email received were visible at a glance in the related folder by simply browsing and detecting the different accent in the folder name, and so on.

I always loved updates and kept the auto update on... until yesterday when my 68 has been migrated automatically to 78 !

No one of the necessary add-ons works anymore! No one of those fantastic the developer is anymore interested in upgrading them (changes are too frequent, and need to invest too much time to upgrade them) The interface is to uniform, I cannot customize colors in the same efficient way.... If I want the same 60+ nested folder sorting, I need to rename all of them... When a folder receives a new email the accent color (sort of bold blue) is nearly same as that of a folder with unread email (bold black)... Oh my god, what a mess !

Since no add-ons are available to re arrange the profile like it was with Thunderbird 68, my only option is to roll-back to 68... and stay there until the necessary add-on will get back to 78 (if any).

Do you know how I can convert back my profile just upgraded to 78 back to 68 ???

Please Please Please, help me ! Pietro

I have a new computer and I had previously saved a backup of the files of my Firefox profile. I followed the steps in this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/back-and-restore-information-firefox-profiles but it didn't work, none of my settings or bookmarks are in place. The backup profile had a different name so I copied the contents and I used the default profile that was created instead of creating a new one. Why didn't it work? Does it matter that I'm using the same profile from the backup on a different new computer as well?

How Can I set up Thunderbird for multiple email addresses

I am using Eudora 7 to handle 6 email accounts on a Windows XP SP3 machine. I want to install Thunderbird on the same machine and import the email addresses. I have Eudora setup to store the data files for each email address in a different data directory. This allows me to have a different icon on the desktop for each email account. Clicking on an icon starts Eudora with the email address data stored in a specific directory.

What I don't know is how to have Thunderbird import the different email addresses from Eudora to Thunderbird and how to keep the individual email address data separate in Thunderbird.

Any help would be appreciated.

How do I revert to previous version of Thunderbird? JUST. THAT. (messages with attachments bouncing back from servers, or arrive corrupted) Mac, bug 1506800

Hello all,

I need to revert to Thunderbird 60.2.1 or 60.3.0 from the current version. Trying to find out how to do so has been a fascinating experience... every single thread on the forum that I've been able to find with a search on reversion goes something like this:

"Something in Thunderbird is broken and I want to revert to the previous version." "Oh, don't do that... explain the problem and we'll get it sorted out." "Well, OK... [long discussion and back and forth with lots of folks chiming in]... hey, that fixed it! Great, thanks!"

This speaks volumes for the dedication and hard work of the volunteers on this forum!

However, I need to revert to the previous version. Honest to God. Just that. Please.

As soon as version 60.3.1 was auto-updated on my Mac, messages with attachments started bouncing back from servers, or arriving with corrupted attachments. This is a KNOWN AND UNRESOLVED ISSUE and I can't do my job as long as it's there.

I live and die by email at work and TB is my most-used tool, going back to like version 3 or something on old PowerPC Macs. I have been fighting for years to keep TB as my email client in an office that now uses Apple Mail, and even a day's downtime damages my case. I don't use add-ons at all, ever, so updates have never been a problem before, but this one's stopped me in my tracks. Even the time it's taken me to write this support message has kept me away from work, and I must get TB back on line NOW.

Please just point me to where I can get 60.2.1 or 60.3.0, while I go try to figure out how to disable automatic updates?

Thanks in advance.
