I have an older PC that I have been using with Win 7 as its OS. It's still there on one of the three HDDs that's in the PC. I have since added a fourth drive, which is a WD Blue SSD which is 560 MB/s big, and has Windows 10 installed and running on it, when I start up this PC.

How do I go about replacing the Microsoft software with Firefox and Thunderbird? The Win 10 software is different than Win 7 so I don't know how to use very well. And the Win 10 instructions don't exactly match up with the Win 10 that is installed on my PC, so if some-body could list some of the steps that are more accurate than what MS has given, I would appreciate it.

Why is the 78.0.1 download for MacOS called "Firefox 78.0.1esr.dmg" and not "Firefox 78.0.1.dmg"?

I got the pop-up about FF 78.0.1 so went to https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/78.0.1/releasenotes/ and clicked on "Download Firefox" (https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/download/thanks/). The download dialogue (image attached) that appeared said that it wanted to download "Firefox 78.0.1esr.dmg". The "esr" in the filename surprised me, as I'm not on any ESR release train. Why is it named that and not "Firefox 78.0.1.dmg", similar to its predecessors?

Long back story: My still-under-warranty work laptop was making a grinding noise. Remote diagnosis was a bad hard drive. Amazingly, I have on site repair (it must have been a special promo deal) but they had to order the replacement hard drive and hook me up with a technician. Figuring was going to lose everything on that hard drive, I made a copy of my Thunderbird profile (and many other files), installed Thunderbird on another laptop, restored the profile and kept working. The second laptop was supposed to be for non-work stuff, so it has less memory, a smaller HD, slower processor, etc.

Two days later the on site tech came and installed the new hard drive but the computer was still grinding. He determined the old hard drive was fine, it was the fan that needed to be replaced, so he put in an order for a new fan. I mentioned that the power connector was loose, so he also ordered a new motherboard. Two days later he's back with the fan and motherboard, but the power connector isn't part of the motherboard, so he has to order that part, and now it's July 4th weekend. He came back today and replaced the power connector, and, because there was nothing wrong with the original hard drive, he reinstalled that, too.

All in all, I used the non-work laptop for seven days. I backed up the Thunderbird profile from the non-work laptop, restored it to the work laptop, started Thunderbird, and realized that I had screwed up and backed up the profile in the appdata/local/thunderbird folder rather than the appdata/roaming/thunderbird folder. Then I started Thunderbird. There is a week's worth of email missing from my work laptop, but now there is a day's worth of new mail on it that isn't on the other one.

I save a lot of email. I use layers of folders and subfolders. My profile folder is 41.7 GB. Windows 10. POP mail server. Automatically download new messages and nothing is saved on the server.

Is there a way to selectively copy messages received and sent within a specific date range and somehow fill in that missing week?

I'm afraid that if I backup the roaming profile from the second computer and restore it to my work computer, I will duplicate everything in my ginormous profile.

Hi there, I am currently working from home using 2 laptops with both TB installed. One has a TB profile with several personal email accounts, and the other has a work email account. I would like to import the latter to the former without having 2 separate profiles to select from on start up of the programme. Instead just the one with all my email accounts in one place. NB because of the crisis I and my colleagues are working from home and cannot reach the person who could normally send me the configuration details so I can set it up manually. Thanks for your time! kind regards, Peter.

This morning FF advised me to update to a newer version. I did and got 78.0.1 (64-bit) for Windows 7. Later I was deleting a program - winpdfeditor - in the Windows control panel and, at completion, suddenly got a message that Firefox was updating (again), but this time with a big bold warning - as I recall - that this version was not synched with anything. This new Firefox opened. My regular version, the one I'd updated this morning -- let's call it FF-1 -- was also open. In the second version (FF-2) I immediately checked under Tools > Options > Logins and Passwords, and the passwords section was empty. I closed FF-2. FF-1 is still open and still has all my passwords. I checked my Mozilla > Firefox > Profiles folder and now have two profiles - one called jn******.default, where I can see all my regular FF files, including logins.json, and one called i6******.default-release, with all files created today and no logins.json. Windows control panel also tells me I have two FFs, but identifies them as v78.01 and v72.02, and says both were installed today. I just checked about:profiles and get this: "Another copy of Firefox has made changes to profiles. You must restart Firefox before making more changes." What to do now? Obviously, I want to save the one with the passwords and delete the other one. But, as this situation is new to me, I want to do it the right way.

I have recently migrated to latest Thunderbird (68.10.0, 64 -bit), and manged to import all the mailboxes from Eudora 7, which I have used for about 30 years.

However, some of the messages in these migrated mailboxes do not display message contents, only the headings From, Subject, To. Nothing in the body of the messages. It affects only some of the messages, not all.

I have no clues on why this is happening, and which settings have I missed. Please help.

I am keeping my hard drive but moving Windows to a SSD. I currently run Windows 10 Pro on a 64-bit machine but run Thunderbird 32-bit. I have previously moved my Thunderbird profiles off C: and onto another drive/partition (for several reasons). I am using this build as a reason to try and upgrade some processes including backups. I have a few questions about Thunderbird that I can't seem to find the answers to.

It seems that the Thunderbird 64-bit version is new. Is it wise to upgrade now?

In some places I have seen people say that I should uninstall the 32-bit version before installing the 64-bit version, but, other people say I don't have to. What are the issues, concerns, and, problems with upgrading to the 64-bit version when I already have the 32-bit version installed?

In looking at changing my backup processes, I have considered renaming and/or moving the folder location of my Thunderbird profiles. I know where to change those locations in Thunderbird. But, to make it easier in the future, is it possible to use an environment variable to help specify the file name? Something like "%my_email_folder/steve%" where in the future I can move or rename the folder/files in Windows and just change an environment variable? Is there another way to accomplish this in Thunderbird?

Concerning backups, specifically for Thunderbird, does Mozilla have a recommended scheme for backups or an app/tool to do backups of Thunderbird profiles/data? My backup process will handle Windows and application backups, but, this question is about the Thunderbird data. I am trying to separate applications and their data as much as possible to make backups/restores more efficient and effective.

Thanks in advance for the help.

My PC with Thunderbird installed and running shut down suddenly as a result of a fire on the motherboard. I was able to recover the hard drive and copy most of my files etc to a new machine. I followed the instructions for transferring the thunderbird profiles from the hard disc to my new machine.

Although the transferred profiles on the new machine appear to contain folders and emails, they will not load into the programme and the thunderbird display remains devoid of any user data. I then tried to do the transfer using MosBackup. This told me that the profile was damaged.

I know that migration should take place with thunderbird shut down, but unfortunately the shut down of the old machine was sudden and catastrophic and did not shut down thunderbird in a planned way.

Please can anyone help.

I've been using Mozilla account xxx@prodigy.net fro many years. I'd like to switch to a different account yyy@prodigy.net. Would it be possible just to use old profile with all it's directories and just modify userid/password for pop3 and smtp entries under tools/account settings under xxx account? I have multiple folders under xxx account so I thought that I sould continue using them, just the new e-mails will come from yyy account. I could forward all my new incoming mail from xxx to yyy. Would this approach work? Thanks, Yuri

I got a new desktop box and installed Kubuntu on it. On my old box (Mint) I used Thunderbrid and I want to preserve my years of e-mails I stored on mail folders on my PC. On the new box I created my e-mail account making sure that it was not using the default mbox (all e-mail in 1 file) but maildir (each e-mail in its own file) as on the old box. But when I copy the "Local Folders" from my old to my new Mail directory, Thunderbird does list the directories (with subdirs " cur" and "tmp"), but does not appear to recognise the e-mail files.

In Thunderbird under menu there is "Tools" that has a wizard " Import". However when I select to import Mail, I only get a message "No application or file to import data from was found."

So how can I import my old mail files in the new Thunderbird instance?

Could you help me with the upload of an mbox file?

I have Thunderbird up and running with the extension ImportExportToolsNG.

When I use the menu Tools/ImportExportToolsNG/import mbox file nothing happens. (screen shot of menu selection attached)

I have the mbox file stored on an external disk but I see no pop up screen that enables to to find and select the mbox file.

Currently I'm not using Thunderbird as an email client. For the time being I'm using it to read and search through older gmail emails as a backup.

I received a Firefox notice that an upgrade was available, so I clicked "not now" and triggered the update by Menu > Help > About. Firefox apparently downloaded its update, then asked me to restart Firefox. I did so and got a "ransomware" notice from my antivirus program, saying it fixed the problem (but not how). Trying to run Firefox repeats the notice. Does Firefox now have malware in it?

A Web search turns up nothing. I am posting this question from Google Chrome.

I made a complete backup of Mozilla Thunderbird back in February, before I installed Windows 10 replacing Windows 7. I was able to reinstall all my mail from the backup after Windows 10 installation. An OS corruption forced me to wipe out my newly installed Windows 10, reinstall it, and start fresh with Mozilla Thunderbird. I cannot find a way to import my mail to my new Thunderbird. I'd appreciate any help you can provide me. Thanks in advance.

I run Firefox on a number of systems and two of my work computers seem to be unable to check in with the Firefox update servers to get updates. See image for the exact error message.

"Firefox can't update to the latest version. Download a fresh copy of Firefox and we'll help you to install it."

My suspicion is my network team is blocking my browsers from getting to the Firefox update servers but I don't know how to test it. One of my browsers is 77.0, the other is 77.0.1. Both of them give me the error in the image. Both of them insist I'm on the latest version of Firefox when I use 'Help/About Firefox' to check.

If anyone knows what data I should collect to get this figured out I'd appreciate it.

Thanks
