I have an installation of Thunderbird on an HP desktop and a Surface Pro. Both installations have automatic updates enabled, and if I click on "check for updates", I get a return message that the latest version is installed. The problem is that Thunderbird is currently released stable version 91.x; and both machines in question are running 78.x. I don't know why they have not updated to current version. I am a little nervous about forcing a new install. I can copy the installed profile folder from the roaming folder, and paste it back in once the new installation is complete, but I am worried if the jump from 78 to 91 will be incompatible to the files after upgrading. Any thoughts as to why Thunderbird has "frozen in time"; and any considerations while attempting the upgrade?

hi.

when I'm working online on thunderbird, my computer is really really slow. I don't knowi f this has something to do with the loading of the messages from the server (I do get a lot of messages), if it's to do with compacting folders or what ever, but it's becoming quite difficult to work online when the whole computer basically freezes

I am fine when I work offline and my computer goes at regular speed

is their anything I can do to perhaps fix this, or make it so that messages only load when I want them too

thanks

I have imported about 3000 emails and I am hoping that Thunderbird can review the emails and build a contact list from the senders/receivers. Is this possible? I found an article on rebuilding the global database in Thunderbird, but I cannot find my Thunderbird profile or the local-messages-db.sqlite file. (I have a Mac...which I hate...so I always have trouble finding files.

Can anyone help with this?

Hello All,

 I had to reinstall Windows7 Professional on my laptop due to a problem with Skype.  When Windows installed in the C:\Windows folder, it moved all of my previous folders and files into the C:\Windows.Old folder, so I do have access to them if I know where I need to go to get them.  After the reinstall of Windows7, I reinstalled Thunderbird to get the program and default folders into the correct places.  I then tried to copy all of what I thought was needed but I obviously I missed something.  When I launch Thunderbird I get nothing in the left pane  (where I would normally see my accounts, their inboxes, etc. and if I try to click on any of the links (like Read Messages, or  View settings for this account nothing happens.  If I click on the down arrow to the right of Get Mail I see a drop down with all of my email addresses.

Hopefully this a simple fix. I do not have the ability to execute the previous thunderbird install since it is under a different user profile for a different install of the os.

 Any suggestions will be appreciated..
