I screwed up and posted in the firefox section. Some how I must have deleted some folders and thus I haven't been getting all my email. I loved Thunderbird but I had to switch back to Outlook, because I just couldn't figure out how to restore anything. Is there any easy way or do I just have to give up?

We need a way to roll back to previous version when buggy update is downloaded. Thunderbird. As at moment there is no apparent way to go back to old version. To many buggy updates and it means going through and recreating all your emails and passwords again with every few updates. I wonder and worry is next update being buggy and just turn autoupdates off when I get a good working version. Why im asking is I just updated and have to reconfigure everything all over again. This is probably about the 3 rd or4th time in about 6 months of repeating this procedure. I will give a screen shot of what happens after update to Thunderbird.

If some miracle person is out there please let me know if there is way to get all my email back without recreating everything as long and tedious. Proof below of other versions being buggy???? one dates back to October. This never happened for all the years I have been using Thunderbird until about last 6 months about 4 failures of Updates not working. 3rd Image wont load below

How to stop pop up asking to purge when I send message to JUNK (not trash)

WIth a recent update, thunderbird now puts an annoying pop up almost every time I click on the "junk" icon of a new message to send it to the junk folder. The pop up offers to purge messages from the disk, and gives "proceed" or "cancel" options. It also offers a check box to not ask again and do it automatically.

I know how to compact folders and do it on my own as needed (and through the setting for doing that automaticallywhen too much space is being used).

I've read the other thread in which it was explained that this "purging" does not delete messages from trash, but that does not tell me whether it deletes messages from the Junk folder.

I do not want any messages ever deleted automatically - I sometime need to go back and check junk or trash messages.

1) does the "purge" function delete any messages from any folders (in particular from junk or trash)? 2) how do I stop the annoying pop up asking me to "proceed" or "cancel" purging each time I click the "junk" icon to move a message to the junk folder?

Thank you very much for any help!

BTW, if "purging" through the pop up is not deleting any messages, and is just compacting folders, then the pop up is very poorly worded.

How do I stop update notifications in Thunderbird?

I am not interested in updating from version 68 at this time (or the near future, the current version truly stinks in the way it looks and is unusable) and want to stop the software from nagging me about updates! I can find no answers anywhere.

Thank you, Eric
