I don't want to be completely negative about Firefox for Android 79, but it doesn't work for me. Extensions that I relied on are no longer supported, and the new functionality doesn't make up for that.

Is there anywhere I can download the .apk for a previous version and install that?

I have followed the Migration instructions over 8 times now and have clearly seem my Roaming Thunderbird folder of nearly 6 Gb moving from PC to Caddy Drive, and then onto the new PC in the Roaming Thunderbird folder. Each time i clicked "replace previous data", and no Thunderbird account has been set up on the new PC. But that's as far as i can get, I cannot get it to open the profile so I can see my 3 years worth of mail. The instructions stop at replace previous data (or whatever the wording is). I'm tearing my ancient hair out as my old PC keeps crashing and I begin 2 training courses tonight to get my web sites and video sales moving. I used to be ok with tech when it was Windows 3.1 but I'm 75 now and am obviously a bit out of touch! H-E-L-P  !! John Reed, York, UK (John O'York on Facebook)

I am using Firefox Nightly. It receives updates every day, but most of the time I cannot restart Firefox as soon as update is available. I want to delay it till next natural restart (ex.: night), however, Firefox shows notification about the available update. It's a minor issue, but seeing notification every day and having it to close every time gets annoying very quickly. I want to disable update notification but keep automatic updates. How can I do this?

Firefox just updated, without my permission, which is another problem. But now when i try to open pdf files, firefox always ask what to do. In Options > General > Appliacations i set pdf files to open with firefox, but firefox still asks what to do. In the window where it asks what to do, there is a tick box saying "Do this automatically from now on", even if i choose that option it still ends up asking what to do the next time i open a pdf file.

Does anyone have experience with this phenomenon:

When you click on a torrent link on a page opened in Firefox 83 (and above), the first window pops up, but the second one (in which uTorrent would come) is no longer. Nothing happens. Specifically, the entry is C: \ ProgramData \ Microsoft \ Windows \ WER \ ReportArchive \ AppCrash_uTorrent.exe....

If I revert to Firefox 82 or 78.6esr, the error will not occur.

If I choose not to download uTorrent but to download the torrent file, it works fine with all versions of Firefox.

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 read probably 100 of your help topics and none of them seem to address my topic in plain english. I have used Thunderbird for years on a windows computer (currently windows 10, Tbird Ver 78.6.0) and I am trying to move my profile from my windows computer to a new Mac running Big Sur Ver 11.1. Thunderbird (for some unknown reason) actually created 4 different profiles on my windows machine (two under: users/alan/AppData/Local, and the same two profiles under users/alan/AppData/roaming) but I have figured out which profile that Thunderbird is using based upon the help/troubleshooting/profile folder/open folder (which happens to be one of the ones located under: users/alan/AppData/roaming) and it is 13.9GB. I copied this folder (and all included files) to a jump drive so that I could move it to my new Mac.

  I am new to Apple and know nothing about their operating system.  I downloaded Thunderbird from the Mozilla website and installed it according to their directions.  I finally found the default profile on my Mac that was created when I installed Thunderbird and I deleted it.  I copied my existing windows profile to the same location.  Now when I start Thunderbird I am greeted with a message that states: "Your Thunderbird profile cannot be loaded.  It may be missing or inaccessible."
  Obviously I have done something wrong.  Please direct me how to correct my problem -- it seems like this should be pretty simple, but I am lost.
  Thank you very much!!

I am running El Capitan and need Firefox 78. I went to a site offering 78 as a download, and version 91.5 came down. Site offering 78esr, same thing. Went to https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/ and was unable to figure out how to download 78. Clicking on 78.0 just led to more links that got me nowhere. Is it possible to download version 78 from this or any site? Thank you. heaton5

As in title, I'm trying to install on a new laptop. Have downloaded version 78.6.0

When I drop the .dmg into the app manager I get a message "The app is currently not available in your country or region". I'm in the UK.

Is this really a regional restriction, or an error because the version is not compatible with the Mac M1 OS?

Please help!

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?
