Copied Mails from old Laptop not accepted

Dear all, on my McBook pro I had Thunderbird 78.8.1 installed. I saved my Mails per instruction onto my external disk. The saved directory looks like this: /Thunderbird/… (читать ещё)

Dear all,

on my McBook pro I had Thunderbird 78.8.1 installed. I saved my Mails per instruction onto my external disk. The saved directory looks like this: /Thunderbird/ImapMail /Thunderbird/ImapMail/imap.gmx.net /Thunderbird/ImapMail/imap.one.com /Thunderbird/Mail /Thunderbird/Mail/Local Folders /Thunderbird/Mail/pop3.web-1.de /Thunderbird/Mail/pop3.web-2.de /Thunderbird/Mail/pop3.web-3.de /Thunderbird/Mail/pop3.web.de

Then Apple reinstalled Big Sur from scratch. With a new user, I reinstalled Thunderbird -- this time I got V.78.9.0. I entered one of my three Mail-accounts as IMAP and closed Thunderbird. As per instruction, I copied the saved Thunderbird-data onto my internal hard disk into /Library/Thunderbird.

Actual results:

My stored mails from before the reinstallation are invisible. The other two Mail-accounts are invisible.

I added another one of my three Mail-accounts as POP3 and closed Thunderbird. As per instruction, I copied the saved Thunderbird-data onto my internal hard disk into /Library/Thunderbird.

My stored mails from before the reinstallation are still invisible. The other Mail-account is invisible.

Expected results:

I would like to access all my three Mail-accounts with the stored emails. At least I would like to get access to my stored Mail folders -- I can install the mail addresses newly, this is not my problem. After proceeding per instruction, I do not know why they are not accessible.

A very helpful person, Matt, showed me https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1315638#answer-1371097, where the same problem is solved. There it says:

  "Go to your backup and open whatever folder contains prefs.js."

In my backups is no prefs.js. To be exact, there is no prefs.js anywhere on my computer or on any of my backup disks. What can I do...? -- I can see my mails in the directory system. How can I access them?!

Thank you for your help in advance. N.

I updated my Firefox to version 88 as soon as it came out. Continued working and browsing as usual.

3 days in, browser won't connect > close and restart > error Firefox still running in background > wait for processes to close > re-open Firefox > "You've launched an older version of Firefox - please create a new profile / Exit"

Follow the instructions, setup my profile from scratch again, login to all my accounts and proceed to get back to work. Few hours later - Firefox notifies me a newer version is released and i need to update my browser.

Not too long after, Firefox is downgraded to 87 by itself and I repeat the same process over and over again.

I tried:

  • Full uninstall / clean re-install
  • Deleting all profiles and all Mozilla folders and reinstalling
  • Some fix that's supposed to allow me to use my ver.88 profile on ver.87

Something is making Firefox downgrade to 87 by itself - This happens while I am browsing/using Firefox and causes all connections to drop and the browser to Crash soon after.

Any thoughts?

Public key of someone else worked in TB68+Enigmail, but TB78 refuses to use it

I have sucessfully migreated from TB68+Eigmail to TB78.8.1 (64-Bit) running under Xubuntu 18.04.

Except for one counterpart, all keys could be migrated through the transitionla Enigmail plugin.

However, there is one public key, which TB refuses to use for encryption. Of course I don't know the intricacies if this particular key and how it was made. I can export it to a file *.public.asc and this file is 7,1kB big. When I want to write an email to a recipient, the first thing that happens on sending: "The message cannot be sent with end-to-end encryption because there are problems with the keys of the following recipients: ...".

The recipient has to deal with many others and of course has little inclination to distribute new public keys just because of me and fears decrypting problems with his other correspondence partners who continue to use his old key during the transition period which he fears to be quite long. I understand that. Unfortunately, the error message does not give the slightest hint as to what is wrong with the key in question in Thunderbird's sense. In any case, the key is still valid for years to come.

It is not offered for selection in the menu "Security OpenPGP message". However, if I click on one of the two buttons below it, TB knows the key related to the email address in question.

With the second option 'Search for new or updated key' TB also finds the key and I can also say that I have checked it and that the fingerprint is correct. But then I am returned to the "Security OpenPGP message", two dialogue windows before and with no key to select. I am caught in an endless loop of questions that do not help me.

Where can I see what condition this public key violates? Is there a URL where I can enter the text form of the key and it will tell mri why TB cannot cope with exactly this key. If I want to convince my correspondence partner to generate a new key pair, I must at least be able to tell him what is wrong with the one which he has given me before and which we used for quite some time!

BTW: If I have to send an unencrypted mail because I don't have no working public key I have to switch off encryption. But then I switch it off for all subsequent Emails. If I want to re-enable it, I have to send myself or someone else an encrypted email. That's not a very smart design decision in the UI! At least I expect a setting Always encrypt which possibly lets me change my mind for one particular email, but not for all subsequent ones!

As a new user, I installed Thunderbird version 38.1 in order to convert my PST file to Thunderbird. This version will not allow me to update to a newer version. I have already backed up my profiles according to the instructions found in the support section. If I install the current version, what files do I replace in the new version from the earlier version in order to get my folders and emails back? I want to keep all of my emails and file structure and make them visible in the new version. I am assuming that the new version will overwrite the old one and that the old profile will need to be cut and pasted in to place. Or am I wrong? Are there additional steps to take to have Thunderbird look at the correct profile? have seen some descriptions of what to do but I am a technical novice and I am not sure that I completely understood how to get Thunderbird to look at my original profile. I understand that a version specific new profile will be created in the new version. I just don't know how to get my emails and folders back.

Thanks for any help or advice you can give.

We use the Guest User to login to checked out iPads to students. We are using Macbook Airs with the M1 chip. When trying to use Firefox I received the error message "you don't have permission to open the application". I received this message for Google also. So I uninstalled both apps under my admin login and reinstalled with the latest versions. I also updated the MB Air to the latest Big Sur version. Google was able to load without a problem. Firefox on the other hand will not load. It bounces once in the dock and then doesn't continue to load. I logged back in with my Admin user and changed the permissions to see if that worked and Firefox still won't load. So I tried to lower the Security setting for the MB Air and that also did not work for Firefox.

Any suggestions on what else to try?

Thanks in advance.

I recently had to recover a drive using photorec that had (among other things) all my mail folders on it. Unfortunately, the software can't recover filenames or directory structure; it just recovers the files with numbers for names and the extension. When I do a locate on the directory where everything was recovered, I see a bunch of *.msf files in the subdirectories. Is there any other filetype I should be looking for, and it possible for Tbird to reassemble my mail folders from them?

Hi, there. I've been using FF ESR as my primary browser for over 3 years. However, I keep encountering update problem, which by clicking menu button and the pop-up update option. Then, the browser will update my 64-bit ESR into 32-bit ESR. I feel so confused and upset I have to update manually by downloading the whole new 64-bit version from official site even though a minor update. The latest version was 78.5 ESR 64-bit reinstalled along the OS on DEC. 2020, Now using 78.10 ESR 64-bit. Is there any solution for me to use pop-up update on menu option? Environment: Windows 7 ultimate SP1 64-bit Thanks!

Though he/ she has not elaborated what changes are required to be made in prefs.js to make it work smoothly without corrupting the profile.

Please tell what changes are to be made in prefs.js?

I am on the Beta channel - now on Ver 89.0 but have lost Outlook contacts . I don't know much about Thunderbird internals - even though I am a lon-term user.

I need to implement the

set ldap_2.servers.outlook.dirType to 3

command.

But I have no idea how or where to do this - presumably its in some special area. Also is it ldap (ie Ldao) or 1dap (ie one)?

This must be easy - but its a mystery to me .

Best & thanks in advance

Gilbert

PS disabling the Outlook connection must have inconvenienced nearly all the T-bird users in UK Universities - bad move T-bird.
