Here's what I did: - Copied the <Thunderbird/Profiles> folder - Uninstalled Thunderbird 60 - Installed Thunderbird 68 - Copied <Profiles> folder into new copy of Thunderbird - There was no Address Book, completely blank.

How do I get my Address Book back?

I have an Aug copy of <Profiles> that might have the Address Book in it but it will not have all E-mails. What files, exactly, would I need to copy from the Aug Profile to the new copy of Thunderbird to get my Address Book back (if that is possible)?

Any and all help is appreciated. I REALLY do not want to reconstruct my Address Book, it have 700+ addresses...

There really needs to be a "revert to my previous version" button. This sucks; I'm going to have to do a lot of work to get it working again.

I cannot read the INBOX index because the font in the application windows is miniscule. A capital letter is 2mm high on my 17" screen. No human being can read lettering this small !!!

The addon list under Extensions does not indicate that any have been disabled. I think that I need "No Small Text" and "Theme Font & Size Changer" to become operational.

OR it might be that long ago I changed something in about:config but I'm not a programmer; I don't remember this stuff.

How do I revert to 52.1.1.1 (64 bit, I think) ???

Hello

I updated from version 60.? to 68.2 tonight and 11 out of my 13 add ons no longer work (legacies)

I've said it before but TB updates are getting to be as problematic as Window updates.

Don't the idiot developers understand why this is not acceptable? I can barely use Thunderbird tonight.

TB may be free but I make voluntary contributions to Mozilla but not for this shit.

Continue like this and very few people will bother to write add-ons for TB and very few people will bother to install them either.

TB say that updates have improvements but it's one step forward and 11 steps back tonight for me.

Can a volunteer answer this please and pass it on to development?

Thanks

I never trust, download or install anything related to Russia or China, I don't want those spies get control of my PC. After many years of using FF, I just found something that shocked me: Baidu Search Update Extension What's this installed with FF installation? Note: I never run Firefox.setup.exe but just extract it using winrar, from "core\browser" remove "features" folder completely then install it. Where can I remove it from install source? Anything related to those Chinese search engines?

Just got a new computer, really excited, but heard that firefox changed and I don't like the firefoxes that I see in recent computers.

I'm still using an old windows xp computer, with firefox 28 I believe.

My new computer is a windows 8.1, and it has all the new bells and whistles. My current version of firefox on XP looks like this:

http://i.imgur.com/nnRjFFk.png

Basic, very simple, just the way I like it. I just want my add-ons and my bookmarks, with everything placed in exactly the same way as it is in that picture (a friend of mine's firefox actually has the home/refresh/stop buttons on the right, what the heck?)

Want to know what's the step by step actions I need to undertake to transfer my firefox as soon as possible and start using my new computer. Would appreciate the help thank you.

created new accounts but sub-folders different, missing, new, & new icons(?)

For many years I have had 2 Accounts in Tbird. They are POP. I just created two new accounts, and am confused by some differences in appearance. These are IMAP. Do IMAP accounts populate the sub-folders based on a structure present in the IMAP provider?

1) there is a new sub folder "All Mail"

2) No Junk folder. There is a Spam folder. Did some idiot change the name in an update to Tbird, just to fark with long time users? If so they did a poor job, since the Account Settings still has a tab for "JUNK Settings" and the toggle asks where to move the JUNK. Creating synonyms is bad practice, because nobody knows if they are in fact synonyms. One would presume they are not.

3) In the index listing of accounts, each account has an icon to its left -- concentric circles with a padlock. And I have not noticed that icon before, I'm wondering if my old accounts suddenly have a different icon (which strangely matches the new accounts' icons). The sub-folders all have unique icons for each type (Inbox, Sent, etc)

In choosing where to place sent mail, there are two toggle choices to Place A Copy In: 1) "Sent" folder on { [circle&lock icon] ACCOUNT_NAME 2) "Other { [SentFolderIcon] Sent on ACCOUNT_NAME I don't grasp the difference. Would 1) keep the messages on the remote IMAP system? I notice that my old POP accounts are using option 1) & mail is kept locally.

3) The new accounts have "greyed out" italicized subfolders "Folders" and "Labels." Are these associated with being IMAP, or did some Tbird update add them? What are they for?

Hi.

In Firefox 63 the option to never check for updates was removed. The release notes suggest to create a policies.json to disable updates. This does not result in similar behaviour! It does indeed stop the checks for updates, but it also disables the option of manually checking for updates. So this is not the same!

I'd like to know how I can disable the auto checking for updates, but keep the option to manually check and update.

I found this thread regarding a beta version of Firefox: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1232918 but that does not give an answer to my question.

I typically check for updates every few days, but I do not want Firefox to check automatically and/or install without my express permission. I seem to be left with renaming the policies file every time I want to check for updates. Cumbersome and very user unfriendly.

I would like to get back to the behaviour I have used for many years. To wit: I click on 'About Firefox' and I can see the version number without any checks or updates starting without my consent. I am presented with a button to check for updates. If I click it, I am presented with either a message stating I am up to date, or an option to update without it automatically doing so. And only if I then click to confirm that I indeed want to update, it starts downloading said update and installing it. This is what I want back please. How do I make that happen? Thanks.

Just OK'ed the v20.0 push upgrade. Tried to download files as I had always done.

Was very surprised by the new interface and process. Frankly, it's a step backward and really leaves alot to be desired.

Is there anyway to change the config back to the download process/interface model of v19.x?

I'm trying to install Thunderbird. It keeps telling me "Configuration Cannot Be Verified" My email and password are correct. I am using POP

On the Blog and News Feed, it shows it has contacted my account but nothing is happening.

I tried this yesterday and got the same thing. I did go to Gmail and change my account to POP but that made no difference.

What is the problem? I'm using Mavericks 10.9.4

After I first got the message I uninstalled Ffox and reinstalled it. Same message. So I can't get to any ffox menu, or buttons because I only have the one page with the message.

One suggestion was to uninstall and delete "firefox program file" but I can't find any file with that name on the C drive Mozilla Firefox folders

What can I do?
