Address books not usable

Bonjour,

In a Windows 10 PC, it is impossible to use the address books with Thunderbird (78.12.0 / 64 bits) --> nothing is displayed when I try to manage the address books. It seems that they still exist because I get a warning saying the address book already exists when I try to create a new address book with the name of one existing. If I change the name of the 2 Thunderbird folders in the users folder, when I start Thunderbird new profile folders are created, then I can create an email account and everything is OK. What are the adress book files corrupted in the profile ? How can I get them OK again ?

I don’t want to create a completely new profile for not loosing all data ...

If I create a new profile, what are the files to copy from the old profile to the new one to get all emails and address books ?

Pierre

Note, the article is a little outdated. Address books don't have a ".mab" extension anymore, it's now ".sqlite".

Bonjour,

I created a new profile folder, I copied the email folders, ... Everything is OK now (I can send emails, ...), except address books. I did not succeed in copying address book files from the old profile to the new one. What are the address book files to copy from the old folder to the new one ?

Thank you very much Christ1, my problem is solved. I first created several empty address books for having the total right number, then I copied the old address books.
