I had my PC upgraded and have had to reinstall Thunderbird. I did access several different accounts on there. The new installatiion wants me to start all over again but I donlt have the passwords etc as they were saved in Thunderbird and I w ant my Local Folders back as well. I did back up my profiles to an external hard drive and there are 3 of them. So 2 questions - are my passwords likely to be anywhere in those profiles that I can access from the hard drive? And how do I now get the 3 profiles all back to be recognised by Thunderbird again please. I'm not very tecchy!! Thanks Lynne

i got a new browser, was trying to get it to recognize mailto commands. instead it opens a window to go to a profile (tried it in edge does the same thing).

originally it was finding an old profile i made ages ago, but it insists on making a brand new profile.

the thing is, i don't have a profile, all my files are listed in a custom directory i put into the thunderbird directory (to make it portable). and if i try to make a profile it blanks it all out - settings, structure etc. even if i copied the old files into a new directory and focused the new profile with the old files in it.

and now i'm starting to confuse myself.


basically i think what i need is - the ability to create a profile of my current settings, so i can give that to the browsers. i don't remember having this issue with waterfox. but i'm using something else now. is there a way to do this? take what i have, that isn't in an official profile, and just put it into a profile?

thanks.

Hi. Previously I installed Firefox on Ubuntu with command `sudo apt install firefox`. I'm using Firefox 88.0 for Ubuntu. I want to update it to the latest version. When I try following commands: `sudo apt update` `sudo apt install firefox`

It says "firefox is already the newest version (88.0+build2-0ubuntu0.20.04.1)." But I know version 89 and 90 are released.

I attached "About Firefox" window. There is no update button.

Hello!

My work email came configured to receive emails through Thunderbird. A friend told me about HCL Notes (Lotus Notes, or IBM notes) and I decided to try it out for a while, and so migrated to that.

After some time I realized I like Thunderbird better and want to migrate back to it, meaning to receive emails normally in it and all.

Does anybody know a way to do that smoothly?

Thanks!

I had been happily using MozBackup since it came out and when my laptop died, had to move everything over to my desktop. Did the recommended copy / paste method found in these forums and now the backups don't work says corrupted. I realize add-ons aren't supported but two related questions:

a) Can I fix a corrupted profile ? b) Any alternative suggestions for backing up 15 years of e-mails
