When my mother's old Win 10 computer stopped booting up, it went to a shop. The tech supposedly copied all her important files over to a new replacement system, running Win 11. Once home, I installed Thunderbird myself. All of her old emails popped up and new ones continue to come in. No problems there.

But there are no contacts listed in her Thunderbird address book at all. Before we (mainly me) resort to typing everything back in, I'm hoping that the needed file(s) may just be misplaced or renamed. If anyone can give me some help regarding what I should try looking for, it would be much appreciated!

Running latest version of Thunderbird. Have 2 email accounts. Open Thunderbird and the secondary one receives, sends all emails and all folders are listed and can be viewed. However, about 2 days ago, the main email account can display all folders and everything can be read. However, the INBOX folder says there are 26 messages, but none can be viewed. When clicking Get Messages, this error message pops up: The current operation in "inbox" did not succeed. The mail server for account xxxxxxxx.net responded: UID FETCH failed. After reaching out for help, I have done the following, but nothing works: Tried Repair Folder, deleted all .msf files, restarted Tbird many, many times including rebooting computer. My current settings are: Thunderbird Version 102.1.2 (64 bit). Previous versions 91.12.0 & 91.2.1 IP Address: 69.127.143.28. Using System Proxy Settings, SMTP Server Port 465, IMAP Mail Server Port 993, SS/TLS, Normal Password. This is Windows 10 Desktop unit. The last thing I wanted to do was uninstall Thunderbird and then reinstall, as I am getting mixed messages regarding losing all previous emails, calendar settings, etc. Any reasonable help would be greatly appreciated.

I run a dual boot system with Ubuntu on one side and Windows 11 on the other side. So far, I've had no problems with Thunderbird in Ubuntu. However, I am having nothing but problems in Windows 11. I have downloaded and installed Thunderbird numerous times in Windows. On the day that I install the software, the program runs properly. However, every time I shut down and restart the system the following day I receive this message: "This app can't run on your PC." I have tried installing the program specifically as an administrator and it has made no difference. All of the program data, including my email accounts, are still there if I reinstall the software. I have also have this problem with Revo Uninstaller and Avira anti-virus software. This has been on-going for the last month or so. Does anyone have any ideas about what could be causing this or how to fix it???

I have been using Thunderbird for some years on my laptop (Windows 10). All updates have been automatic, occuring when Thunderbird is turned on. Recently a message popped up requiring me to download an upgrade from the Mozilla website. I did so, and installed version 102.1.0. A couple of days later I received the same message when I turned Thunderbird on, and went through the same routine, installing version 102.1.1. Yesterday I received the same message, and then downloaded and installed version 102.1.2. Today I received the same message, but when I downloaded the update file it was version 102.1.2, which is already installed. In Thunderbird, when I check Help on the menu, the installed update is 102.1.2. It looks to me that something is wrong. After the initial upgrade, should further updates to it be automatic? I should not be receiving popup messages almost every day from Mozilla, and I should not constantly be going to the Mozilla webite to download and install further upgrade/update files. Thanks, Roger

Hi! I've searched this question but can't seem to find a "guide". I've been using Thunderbird on my PC/Laptop for at least a decade. I have a "Profile" folder but most of my mail is stored in a separate folder on my C: drive. It appears under "Local Folders" in Thunderbird. I don't know too much about Macs but just got a Macbook Pro. I've installed thunderbird and configured it to my email servers. I can get new email and now I'm at the point where I'd like to get the rest of my folders, address books, add-ons, etc. from my Laptop to my new Mac and it's a bit overwhelming. I wasn't able to export/import my address book, I've placed the .mab files in the new profile on the mac and they're not appearing and I can't help but to think that I'm missing a lot of other steps as well. I'd almost like to start over from scratch on the new Mac since my old install has been moved several times from pc to pc to laptop, etc. Any suggestions are most welcome! Thanks so much for your help in advance. PS I also had two accounts appearing on my Mac. . nyj****.net and nyj****.net (pop3). I'd like to continue using POP3. I was also able to have only 1 inbox on my PC (it was located under my "Local Folders") as well as 1 trash, etc. Can I have that again? Thanks again in advance :-)

I had Thunderbird running last year... No problems. My HDD died and I lost Thunderbird. I installed Thunderbird on new computer and I can not get it to connect. I'm using Yahoo mail, but I want Thunderbird and the address book, etc.

Message in 'YELLOW' when checking password. "Unable to log in at server. Probably wrong configuration, username or password."

The same username and password that I use for Yahoo.mail.

They are the same username and password, aren't they???

Hello. Upgraded to version 102 with Windows 11. Used thunderbird.exe -p to open profile manager. Go to add new profile without issue. Then click on that profile to add email address......and Thunderbird opens again. The program opens each time we add a profile. 3 profiles....Tbird is running 3 times. Our last installation on Win 10 had multiple profiles, each for an individual email address. So couple questions..... 1. How do you add multiple profiles with Tbird running one time? 2. Is there really no way to switch between profiles when it's open? Could adding a profile switcher button be difficult?

Thanks in advance for any advice you may have.

I want to talk with a Thunderbird agent for help. I'm not sure if this is the right way to communicate. Thank you for responding. I finally did get the help I needed when I returned home from travelling. A local business uses Thunderbird on a Mac like me. "Ionos", which hosts my website and web mail that goes to Thunderbird helped me on line to put in changes they require but that did not work for me. And I lost all my email except for the last week. Also mail wasn't coming into Thunderbird. It turns out my Avast had something to do with the muck up. It took 2 hrs. to solve the problem. My husband Uri Cogan passed on last Nov. He set me up with Thunderbird and took care of everything related to my computer. He was a volunteer helping here. Without him I am slowly learning what I can. I am finding out that most people don't really know anything outside their lane and any friend I asked was as clued out as I am.

Hello people!

I have quite a strange problem with Thunderbird that I never encountered before. Since I setup my new OS, Thunderbird just doesn't load the browser window anymore, that appears after you type in your mail address and your password. It doesn't do anything, there's not even an indication of loading in form of a moving circle of something like that. I already tried to reinstall it multiple times and also tried other mail providers but nothing changes. Could it have something to do with DNS settings or VPN/Proxies which I use?

Thanks in advance for your help, hopefully someone can help me out here :)

I upgraded from Thunderbird 91.12.0 to 102.1.2 one week ago. Windows 10 21H2. I have many Saved Search folders. Since I upgraded when I click on any of them, no results (messages) are listed. If I right-click any of them, and left-click 'Properties', against 'Select folders to search' it now states '0 folders chosen', which is unexpected. I can fix this by manually re-choosing the folders for each one, but this shouldn't be necessary.

I did make a backup of my Thunderbird profile before the upgrade. I tried restoring one of the *.msf files from this backup to see if that would resolve it for the one saved search folder...but no.

Has anyone else come across this problem, and/or know a solution?

I want to use two separate Microsoft email accounts on Thunderbird. I was able to add the first one using the IMAP option. When I tried to add another existing email I got the pop-up error "Incoming server already exists". I have researched this forum with no results even though this question has been posted many times. Yes, I know it is the same server, both are Microsoft accounts. They are *different email accounts using the same server*. How can I explain this to Thunderbird? I do not see any option to get past this. Any ideas?

My Thunderbird upgraded and my 1 of my 2 emails accounts stopped working due to a change in password security. (GMAIL). I saved my profile and unistalled TB and installed a older version hoping this would work . However after copying and paste my old profile over the new profile it stated "profile data were no longer compatible with the older version and to create a new profile".

I did not want to do this. So I kept my old profile uninstalled again and reinstalled the latest TB back again only to find when i copy and paste my old profile it now is no longer compatable with this version either .

How do i get my profile to work again? (even if it means just the one email account works).
