secret key will not import into Thunderbird

When enigmail was superseded on Thunderbird I had no problem transferring all my public and private keys but when I had to generate new pgp keys on one of my secure email accounts the other day I struck a problem. You have to change the password and pgp keys every few months. The public key imported okay, but no matter what I try the private (secret) key will not import and so when I receive an email I cannot decrypt it. As things stand the same problem is going to occur with my two other secure accounts when their pgp keys are due for renewal. So annoying when enigmail worked perfectly for so many years.

I would be grateful for any suggestions.

Cheers, Michael PS
