Thunderbird 115 included in 24.04 LTS installation.

My profiles are located on the SD card working well on other two laptops running ubuntu 22.04. Swap SD cards between two laptops is my way of working with Thunderbird since 13.04.

After installation 24.04 LTS (and Thunderbird 115 included). Following the instruction for adding old profile to the new Thunderbird. Help->thunderbird information->about:profiles. Creating new profile. 1) Using the function CHOOSE FOLDER indicated the path to the profile /media/VB/AB49-E208/Thunderbird profile 2) The path to the folder shown by Thunderbird is different (and strange): /run/user/1000/doc/58235/Thunderbird

When looking into the directory tree the folder is empty (obviously). Thunderbird therefore cannot reach the profile located on SD card and doesn't work.

QUESTION: Is there any way to overwrite the profile folder path in Thunderbird 115 ?

Hello! I have tried to install the normal Thunderbird on my PC for months now. Everytime all it does is count more and more files, folders etc. I can't get it to install. The two screenshots were made within a few minutes. I let it install for around an hour one time and it simply counted more and more files without ever moving in progress. I really don't know what to do. Restarts, redownloads, nothing works. Maybe someone knows what's wrong. Thanks!

Can I Upgrade from 68.12.1 to 78.14.0 on MAC OS 10.11.6 ?

I'm having problems with the Cardbook add-on but it is up to date based on my version of TB. When I go into Preferences->Advanced-> Update 'Check for Updates' shows I'm up to date. However, when I check archived versions it looks like the last version that worked with a MAC release of less than 10.12 is 78.14.0.

I'm confused if I can upgrade to 78.14 and how I would do it?

Thanks for any advice

P.S. and yes, it's a very old Macbook from 2009.

I am running 115.11.0 on Ubuntu 22.04

I changed email SMTP servers, incoming and outgoing. First I migrated IMAP on the cloud between old host and new host. I connected Thunderbird using existing a profile, just changed server information. After that email started coming into Thunderbird. I discovered a bunch of the filters had been disabled with no destination folder. Not all of them. Just maybe half. It knew the destination folder for the filter because it was at top of window when I would look at filter rule. I had to use that as guide as to what destination folder it should go to, and it filters fine.

Why were all these filters cleared of destination folder?

Got a new computer. Loaded Thunderbird and set up. Received a few emails. Then realized need to move Profile from old computer. Forwarded the few emails I got to another rarely used email account. Thought uninstalled (?) Thunderbird from new computer. Transferred Profile and ini to new computer. Thunderbird started on its own (?) but with about a month older version of my local files, and older emails. Mozilla Thunderbird did not appear in Windows start directory. Loaded Thunderbird again on new computer, and got back in the Windows start directory. Eventually got all my old emails were sent to me automatically in the (correct) Inbox, and I retrieved the few emails I forwarded to my other rarely used email account. Long story short, I got everything straightened out, but with one big exception. A second Inbox, the one that now receives my email, is now in my Drafts folder. How do I get my correct Inbox to receive my mail instead of the second Inbox in the Drafts folder? Thank you in advance to whomever has the expertise to straighten this out.

I was running MacOS Catalina 10.5.6 and upgraded to Sonoma 14.5. I know it was stupid to wait so long, but that's where I am.

After many years of using Thunderbird, I stopped using Thunderbird for my email years ago because my old provider gave up the ghost, and I switched to gmail even though I loved Thunderbird. I still had many documents in Thunderbird which I didn't transfer to other applications or locations.

Today, I finally gave up and did a massive update on my MacOS. Now Thunderbird won't run, and I desperately need many of the documents that I could only access through Thunderbird. When I went to the site for updating Thunderbird, the first thing I needed to know was what version I had, and the instructions assume you can access that info as you are running Thunderbird, which I can't do now. Please help!

Thank you, Sara
