Thunderbird 78 does NOT see ANY address book(s)

Hello; What a mess! For many years I could just install new versions of TB over the previous versions to upgrade. Or on a new computer I could install the latest version and then just copy the contents of the profile folder(s) into the correct location on the new machine and all was fine. Okay around I believe version 48 or so there where glitches and I needed to go through certain intermediate version(s) but that's besides my point.

My wife's computer died with a hardware glitch and I replaced it with a better machine I had sitting around. Windows 10 all updated I downloaded and installed TB v78 and then transferred the profile. TB's installer gave NO WARNING AT ALL that there where incompatibilities to be expected. The result is that on the new machine TB has NO ADDRESS BOOK and in the Write widow the Send button is greyed out.

And from what I read here there seems to NO REASONABLE WAY to make TB v78 see or recognize the existing files abook.mab, abook.sqlite and history.mab. I even coaxed these files out of a June 2020 backup, no help.

I happen to have reasonably recent .CSV files with her address data but the import attempts fail with an UNHELPFUL message to the tune of "the input file has an error...". Despite the wording of the message NO ADDRESSES ARE IMPORTED and NO ADDRESS BOOK IS CREATED! When I look at the CSV file in a text editor they look perfectly correct to me!

Please, pretty please, what may I have overlooked or just not found yet that may help?

Does anybody have a solution for that?

Is there an add-on around that I can't find that could help me to get in my wife's good grace again?

Any help would be greatly appreciated, TIA. EikeH

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 installed the latest version 81.0.2 - I WISHED I haden't When sending Emails I get-: 'Thunderbird can't connect securely to website.mozilla.org because the site uses a security protocol that isn't enabled'

Now then, I use exactly the same set up on two other computers but with a older Firefox but all with exactly the same Email versions of an ealier Thunderbird.

Question 1. How the blazes can I stop this error?

Question 2. Why is it that I have to answer Cookie permissions before going to a web site.

Question 3. How the hell do can you turn Google search suggestions off - YES, I have search suggestions disabled! The only sure way is to block them with ADblock - WHY can't it be done in Firefox, paying a sum are they?

EDIT: The link should read-: website-archive.mozilla.org

Hello, I just restarted my PC after a Windows 10 update (Windows Update). Launching Firefox from the task bar no longer worked (link removed). So I launched Firefox from the start menu. A completely blank version of Firefox appeared on the screen, as if I had just installed it. No more favorites, no more extensions, no more customization. All Firefox installation files in the AppData directory are dated today. How can a Windows update remove a Firefox installation? Is it possible to recover favorites and bookmarks? Thank you for your answers. Regards,

I converted all 25 years of my email to Thunderbird 78 and have an active calendar that I can add to manually but "Events and Tasks" import of an ics file of a new calendar from Outlook does not work. When I try to import, I get the error, MODIFICATION FAILED. I have looked at the eventual calendar items that Thunderbird 78 is trying to import prior to MODIFICATION FAILED and they show likely proper start and stop times but show nothing else just "time busy". I am looking for the calendar event title on the ics file and the detailed body of information stored on the ics file about the event.

I uninstalled Libre Office and it apparently uninstalled the VCRUNTIME140_1.dll file s part of its uninstall process. From this point Firefox would open but would not connect to the Internet, either by clicking one of the links in the toolbar or typing the address directly. I have tried all the solutions I can find on the support pages, ranging from attempting to copy the file from another location to re-installing Visual C++ from the Microsoft website, both the 64 bit and the x86 versions. Having found and installed the latest version of Visual C++ I now get the error message "The procedure entry point _CxxFramehandler4 could not be located in the dynamic link library C\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\MSVCP140.dll" at the edn of the installation process, and of course Firefox has not installed. Any suggestions for a way forward?

I have read this article on setting-up an internal service, from which to deploy Firefox to machines inside my organisation. https://firefox-source-docs.mozilla.org/taskcluster/setting-up-an-update-server.html

The issue is, that we use Firefox ESR and I can't see if the MAR files for auto-update are available for ESR.

Has anybody done this?

I have just upgraded to Firefox 17 and found that Norton 360 "Login Assistant" (formally named Identity Safe) no longer works. It does not fill in the username and password fields. It worked very well and did all the right things when I was using Firefox 16. There is probably a quick fix but in the meantime I have had to revert to version 16. Looking forward to the problem being resolved.
