I need Thunderbird to never even offer updates. My 97-year old mother can't respond appropriately to the unsolicited update prompts. I will manually check and install updates.

I am running 78.3.1 (32-bit) on Windows 10.

I was using the following process but it quit working on a recent update:

1) On the top menu, click on Tools->Options to enter the Options window.

2) Then click on Advanced and select the General tab.

3) Click on the Config Editor… button and the scary window saying “This might void you warranty !” should appear again. Just click on “I’ll be careful I promise!” to carry on.

4) Then in the Filter filed type app.update.enabled. It should be set to true, double-click on the line to set it to false.

Hello, Since Thursday morning I have been unable to get emails from my server downloaded to saved folders Thunderbird. There was a Windows update Weds, only program I've had an issue with since is Thunderbird and I have checked and reset my firewalls but that had no affect. I CAN still send outbound emails regularly, and I can read incoming ones directly on my server so everything seems to be working outside of downloading emails. My wife's computer is still able to download her messages from the server as well. Any clues as to what would cause inbound messages to not download but outbound to work fine? Outside of the Windows update nothing has changed, and I've gone through the Tools, Options, privacy and security suggestions as well to no avail. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. Mike

I just set-up a separate Profile in the Profile Manager. How can I have my Google Calendar appear in both Profiles?

Note: What a VERY cool feature the Profile Manager is, so happy to have this available! Hopefully, this can be added in the "File" area with an option to choose another Profile from each Profile, etc?

Any help would be very much appreciated!

Thank you

The Thunderbird in use did not have the possibility to leave the mails on the server. By reinstalling the same problem remained. So I did delete Thunderbird and all the files I could find by hand. I hoped to solve the problem, but now I cannot install Thunderbird, because the install program is corrupt. It says 'extraction failed. file is corrupt.' I think I did something wrong, but what to do? There are a few files I cannot open and there are 4 shortcuts which I cannot delete. W10 don't give me acces or refuses to obey my orders..

Hi, I want to backup my Gmail on Thunderbird so all the email is held locally on my PC with the intention of closing the Gmail account in month or so. I have added the Gmail account to latest Thunderbird in my Windows 10 PC and I see if I delete an email from Gmail.com that same email deletes in my Thunderbird inbox. Is there a way to download all the emails but keep a copy so that if emails are deleted remotely at Gmail.com they aren't deleted from the Thunderbird inbox. I ultimately want to close my Gmail account and delete the data but be able to access the local copies using Thunderbird going forward should I need some old info. Thanks
