Abort update after it downloaded but not installed yet

A computer is still running Thunderbird 102 happily. That is the plan -- the user is NOT prepared to deal with 115 and later, and the changes therein. Somehow, even though it was supposedly set to only install updates when you told it to, it downloaded and began the process of installing 115. So it's up and running now at 102, but says that when you restart, it will go to 115. Please don't tell me how wonderful 115 is; been there, done that, it's not my machine but it's someone near and dear to me who detests computers in the first place but has to use them so gratuitous changes are utterly unwelcome....

So is there a way to delete something and tell Thunderbird to just keep running 102 and not do the upgrade? If I have to reinstall 102 on top of the old profile, which contains many gigabytes of IMPORTANT mail, I can deal with that. I assume that the profile hasn't been munged yet by the update so I'm asking now. Thanks!

I'm porting Thunderbird from my W-10 PC to a new Mac. I tried some things and found help on the net. Heere are the steps I took:

WHAT DOESN'T WORK (but I did): Removed installed Profiles folder and saved on desktop. Transferred PC Profiles folder to same place in Mac.

Deleted PC folder from Mac. Replaced Mac Profiles folder had previously moved. Deleted installs.ini and profiles.ini Started Thunderbird which created new profiles in Profiles folder.

WHAT SHOULD WORK BUT DIDN'T (after above): Removed new contents of Profiles folder. Transferred contents of PC Profiles folder to Profiles folder on Mac. Got the following message: "Your Thunderbird profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible."

What did I do wrong? Do I need to uninstall Thunderbird and reinstall? Would that solve problems?

Thank you.

I want to move Thunderbird local folders to an external drive (Seagate). I am working on a desktop computer with Windows 10. Where are the Thunderbird local folders? The files don't display anywhere in Windows explorer. I am able to transfer all other files such as jpg. and pdf. files from the desk top computer to the external drive by dragging and dropping, but I can't locate the Thunderbird local email files so as to be able to drag and drop.

My wife has been using Cox Webmail for years and has about 30 subfolders with stuff she needs to keep. We are finally pulling the plug with cox and so that email will be terminated with them.

My question - If I setup Thunderbird as IMAP does it just point to those emails and folders on the Cox servers, or does Thunderbird actually keep those emails within itself locally? My fear is that I set the Cox account up in Thunderbird and all appears well, I then close the Cox account and then Thunderbird is empty.

I've got forwarding turned on in the Cox account and that works fine, but I see no option within Cox to export all the subfolders.

Appreciate any help!

Thanks,

David

I recently did a complete re-installation of Windows 10, then downloaded and installed Thunderbird, but cannot see the data files for Thunderbird. Before re-installation, there was Thunderbird data in the subdirectory C:\users\xxxxx\App Data\Roaming, but now there's no App Data subdirectory.

I want to paste the Thunderbird data into the user subdirectory App Data\Roaming, but there are no subdirectories.

I did this many years ago on an old PC but don't remember how. I have a new laptop and I'm trying to import my Outlook PST archive to TB. It contains 30 years of important emails. I'm trying to get away from MS's Office - it's become too expensive.

I tried to use TB's tools>import>import from Outlook but I get an error message saying "no profile is found".

Can I do this within TB or do I need a 3rd party app? If so, is there a reliable one?

Thanks in advance.

Over the years I have accumulated important links in my Firefox Bookmarks bar and passwords file and it would be a disaster if for some reason my hard drive got compromised and I could no longer access them. Is there any way to copy the data to another set-up, independent of my laptop, from where the data could be retrieved in a usable form for display on another laptop or PC? Thanks.

I was running an older version of Thunderbird (don't ask the version because the About screen now shows 115.3.1) that had a bland color scheme (best way to describe it) that I downloaded about 6 months ago. When I first opened TB today (before attempting an upgrade) I got a screen talking about the benefits of 115.3.1 and showing colorful screens with more options than I had with the current TB. With TB open, I went to Help > About Thunderbird and the screen showed an upgrade to 115.3.1 was available. I believe I clicked Upgrade (but the upgrade may have started on its own) and the new software downloaded. I saw a message saying I had to restart to complete the upgrade and assumed that meant restart my PC. I closed all applications and restarted the computer. Opening TB, I get the same old bland screen, definitely not 115.3.1. Going to Help > About Thunderbird now gets me the message that "Thunderbird is up to date." What did I do wrong and/or what should I do to get 115.3.1 installed and functioning? I'm running Windows 11. Thanks in advance.

At some point every night, my Firefox (and only Firefox) reverts to version 111 from the latest version. This happens on 2 different Windows 11 machines.

I can only get Firefox to run again by running from command prompt with "-allow-downgrade" option and then updating again.

I usually don't notice until I launch Firefox the following morning and it gives me a message that the profile was created with an older version and to exit or create a new profile.

I've had Firefox open and then it reverts and it gives me a XULRunner error about the profile being used by an older version.

I don't have any special backup or restore software running and the physical files in my Firefox folder in c:\program files\mozilla firefox are being physically pushed to a prior version dated 3/21/2023.

On both machines, I've completely uninstalled and reinstalled and it's good for a day and then reverts.

No log entries for the reversion can be found. It's just back to a prior version.

I've never come across anything like this before and have scanned for any malware or other issue, but haven't found anything.

Recently my C/Windows drive (Solid state) failed, I have the data (it was installed on the D drive of my computer) for Thunderbird however my profile as far as I can tell was stored on my now gone former C drive, I need to recover those emails as I had several personal messages from a departed friend that I had saved as well as a number of emailed receipts for travel etc for the business I am building that I need to use as write offs on my taxes. How do I recover and/or more specifically re-integrate the previous install into my current one?

Hello, trying to verify the integrity of firefox-118.0.1.tar.bz2 I realized the GPG key has changed.

The following blog post details the change and shows the new key: https://blog.mozilla.org/security/2023/05/11/updated-gpg-key-for-signing-firefox-releases/

But when I download the key using the link provided (which points to keys.openpgp.org) the key I get is different from the key posted on the Mozilla blog page.

What is even more strange, is that the key from keys.openpgp.org declares in the comment that 14F2 6682 D091 6CDD 81E3 7B6D 61B7 B526 D98F 0353 is the fingerprint of the key (the same that is posted on the Mozilla blog) but it can't be because the key different.

So my questions: 1) Why Mozilla is posting a link to a key that is different? 2) Why keys.openpgp.org shows the correct fingerprint with a different key?

And, in the end, which key should I trust and why.

Thanks.

Update to Thunderbird 115.3.3 Corrupted Profile

I recently updated Thunderbird to 115.3.3. When the update was complete it appears to have split my profile into two and created two of Inbox, Drafts, Sent, and Trash. I use Earthlink which is the name of the POP3 account. Now there are Inbox, Drafts, Sent, and Trash for "Earthlink", and a set for "Local Folders". Junk and Archives are only associated with "Local Folders", and "Outbox" shows up under a "Local Folders" header along with all of the folders I used to organize received messages. When new messages are downloaded they appear in "Inbox / Local Folders". Nothing appears in any of the "Earthlink / ..." folders.

I don't recall exactly what it looked like before but there was only one set of the primary folders, and the local folders I created to organize my inbox. I have attached screenshots of the the folder navigation pane, as well as the odd organization of the "Account Settings" tab. I am admittedly not an expert. Any help is appreciated.

Hello.

Lately i found strange bug in FF 119.0 (ppa - deb, not snap version), ubuntu 23.10 I can't download any file to mounted ntfs volume. Firefox instead creates thousands of empty files. Once it was 10001 or 10003 other time it was 20000 of files. I tried private-window, no change. I have removed all add-ons - no change.

For example i was trying to download https://fedorapeople.org/groups/virt/virtio-win/direct-downloads/stable-virtio/virtio-win.iso and i ended with (only few last lines):

-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9989.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-998.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9990.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9991.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9992.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9993.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9994.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9995.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9996.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9997.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9998.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9999.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-999.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-99.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest.exe

I can download the same source files to the same location with other browsers without problems. Thank You for Your help!

Upgrade to Thunderbird v115 has lost me access to emails/folders/contacts

After the automatic upgrade to 115.2.2, I have lost access to all my folders, emails and calendar entries. But I can still see my addresses by using Tools/Address Book, and my filters by using Tools/Message Filters.

When I started Thunderbird for the first time on 115.2.2 I got to the usual message page which had all the tabs of the "open" emails I had when I last closed Thunderbird. But there was no sign of my folders and I couldn't get to any other messages (See first screenshot). I also had a second occurrence of Thunderbird running (I could have hit the icon a second time) that didn't show the tabs I had on the first screen. (No screen shot)

On a previous post here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1424153 it was suggested that I try Troubleshoot mode. That made no difference and at that time I had no folders showing, and just two tabs. I suspect after that I deleted the tabs.

Now I get a completely blank page in what is usually the message/folder area. Also the button for the address book above the message pane has now gone disappeared (Second screen shot), and I can find no way of accessing my previous (10years+ of messages).

It looks to me as if something is wrong in the profile.

Where do I go from here?

Moving to a new laptop, running Fedora 36, with Flatpak. Was able to migrate Thunderbird profile without issue. However, I can not see any of my email folders or the contents of my inbox. Under Account Settings/Server Settings/Message Storage/Local Directory is a path to my email folders. While that location is correct, the email folders still do not show for the account. I "Browsed" to them again, and now the Local directory shows /run/flatpak/doc/8cad13c1/mail-remote However, that did not help, as email folders are still not shown. What am I missing here?
