In a recent announcement there was a image of a new layout for contacts in the address book in version 102. I have attached the image I am referring to.

For the life of me I can not figure out how to display this layout.

Can someone explain to me how to view this layout?

Thanks, Bill

It also doesn't attempt to download from another account when I tell it to manually download. It downloads on auto from that 2nd account, but not manually and not from GMail at all.

I started Thunderbird as usual this morning & it wanted to install an Update. I said yes.

The Thunderbird.exe now tells me:

thunderbird.exe - Entry Point Not Found

The procedure entry point ?NowUnfuzzed@TimeStamp@mozilla@@CA?AV12@_N@Z could not be located in the dynamic link library C:\Program Files\Mozilla Thunderbird\thunderbird.exe

This means that not only my personal emails are gone but my business ones as well, including the dispute case that I have been working on for 4 months now. This is information that I cannot afford to lose, besides now having no email access at all except my personal gmail.

For reasons that will likely never be known Thunderbird stopped yesterday. Clicking on the icon showed the spinning icon for a second or two and then ended without the application starting. It had been running flawlessly for several years.

I checked with task manager, nothing from Thunderbird. I restarted. Same problem.

So, I found and installed the beta version which is working fine but I've lost my address book and message filters.

I can re-create the filters easily, but would prefer not to have to re-create the addresses. Is there a way to find the old address book(s) and use them?

Thanks -dmd-

I am on windows 10. My Thunderbird was upgraded automatically from 91.11.0 to 102.0. I've lost all my emails, folders, accounts, and profiles, including Giganews (usenet). I tried re-installing TB 91.11.0 and restoring my profile folder, but I still cannot access my old folders, accounts, or profiles.

What did I do wrong? Is there any way to get back to a working Thunderbird? I have numerous backups of my old Thunderbird profile folder.

I am on TB 91.11.0. It crashed a few minutes ago and now I can't start it. I have rebooted my PC. Doubleclicked on the TB icon, and it does show in the App List in Task Manager. I have never had anything happen like this before. Looking in the crash/events folder I can see that a report was made and uploaded. If it helps I can attach the crash report. How can I get TB going again? My whole life is in there.

Please any ideas?

I have just installed 102 thunderbird on Windows 11. There is one setting I can't find, that I swear behaves differently/'correctly' from a Linux (91.x), that is: Hover over a message in the list for a second or two, scroll down with keyboard, message goes from 'unread' (bold) to 'read' (normal font), the green 'unread' indicator goes out.

The setting I found seems to apply to a message being read, not hovered over (selected with keyboard or mouse), if that makes sense.

Also, I'd like to see a delete icon rather than needing to hit the keyboard delete, when browsing a list of messages. Possible? Or is it just hidden by my "PixelsPerPX" setting?

Sorry, go ahead and give me a "piling-on penalty" for multiple questions in the same support request.

I have my Thunderbird set to IMAP with my lln****@gmail account. I also have other identities (c****j@pobox.com; c****r@pobox.com, etc.). When I compose an email, I can choose which identity to use. However, the receiver of the email sees the email as coming from lln****@gmail, not the identity I sent it with. (When they click reply, it goes to the identity.) I would like my IMAP address lln****@gmail to be completely invisible to others.

How can I do this? How can others who receive emails that I send, ONLY see the identity I sent it from?

Thank you in advance for help!

Thunderbird keeps asking for address book password everytime I open thunderbird. I have selected to "save password in password manager" but it won't save it. It works after I enter it, properly syncs my address book, but it's frustrating when to have to copy from my lastpass every time I open it.

I have looked in preferences in saved passwords and it is not there. My imap, smtp and caldav logins are there, but no carddav password. Nothing else asks for password, just carddav.

I recently had to re-install Kubuntu 20.04 on a laptop. In the process of setting up Thunderbird, the installation process said it had found address books and asked if I wanted to connect them. Sounded like a time-saver, so I said "Yes." What got connected were several completely irrelevant files, most CSV contacts from my cell phone, but the extensive .mab file from the old version of Thunderbird was not there.

I have found some proposed solutions that tell me to

 >> shut down Thunderbird,
 >> rename the abook.sqlite files in my profile folder,
 >> copy to the old abook.mab file (which I have on a backup disk) into my profile folder, and
 >> restart Thunderbird, which will than automatically convert the old .mab file to the new .sqlite format.

That doesn't work. First problem is, I don't have a "profile" folder. I do have a profile.ini FILE which points to two other folders named (approximately) a1b2c3d4.default and z9y8x7w5-default-release (I've changed the exact names, but the name format is as shown).

Second problem is, my a1b2c3d4.default folder (which, in older versions, was where my abook.mab file was found) had no .sqlite files. My z9y8x7w5-default-release folder has several such files but named abook-4.sqlite, abook-16.sqlite, and abook-17.sqlite. They are all shown as 256 KB. When I added the old abook.mab file to that .default-release folder, it did produce an abook.sqlite file, also shown as 256 KB. But the old abook.mab file's content does not appear when I restart Thunderbird and look at the address books. No abook.sqlite file was created in my a1b2c3d4.default folder.

The references I've found so far appear to be for Windows installations, so I'm hoping someone will have suggestions more suitable to the Linux environment.
