Thunderbird opens blank
this is a surprise. Thunderbird has always been very reliable. but today, after a Restart my thunderbird just opened up blank. No accounts, no folders... nothing (see attached.)
and nothing responds. Edit > Account Settings does nothing.
Help > Troubleshooting information does nothing.
I thought I had pushed my profile onto a seperate partition but I cannot seem to find it now (the profile that is.)
as of 14h52 this afternoon (that is to say 1 hour ago) I had a Profiles.ini file which showed: [Profile2] Name=PeterTB IsRelative=0 Path=/media/peter/Seagate Expansion Drive/data Default=1
[Profile1] Name=Peter Tbird Email IsRelative=0 Path=/media/peter/Internal 250GB/data/Thunderbird/o7z44xbg.default
[Profile0] Name=o7z44xbg.default IsRelative=0 Path=/media/peter/Internal 250GB/data
[General] StartWithLastProfile=1 Version=2
[InstallFDC34C9F024745EB] Default=/media/peter/Seagate Expansion Drive/data
but I am not seeing that Internal250GB partition.
what am I missing here? I expect I can recreate my email accounts by reinstalling Thunderbird and readding all the accounts (three of them) but that would be a hassle.
where has my profile disappeared to?
plus, I cannot even seem to get into Account Setting even if I wanted to recreate my accounts.

I have seen some reports where deleting the global-message-db.sqlite from the profile folder helps with this post Thunderbird 68 in every case I have seen so far.
thank you. but strangely I don't even see my old profile any longer.
in the end rather than mess around with trying to get the old version functioning again I did the following: - I took a backup of a Thunderbird profile from my laptop, - installed a fresh version of Thunderbird on my desktop (where I was having trouble), - copied that backup profile to the location teh new install of Thunderbird was expecting. - modified the profiles.ini file to specify the name of this backup profile folder, - launched the new Thunderbird (and "removed" the old Thunderbird.)
and it opened up correctly.
deleting "deleting the global-message-db.sqlite" didn't seem to do anything.
