- Thunderbird moved the top menu bar to the left, now has unreachable buttons at the bottom due to negative interactions with other menus and window manager => tried many forums, but all changes to ./chrome/userChrome.css are ignored. - the quick filter button was moved from the toolbar to an individual bar, adding one new line above message list, reducing the vertical space for content - new management of borders have negative interactions with window manager (tried both options, with and without decoration, both are ... BAD). making it impossible for window manager to properly resize window magnet to other windows - there are large sensibility zones for decoration management catched by TB that make some buttons unreachable in the left bar, and the window manager gadgets i have below (quick launch and desktop management) - there is a new sensibility zone between the top menu bar and the top decoration of windows that give access to some window manager menu, useless at this place, and it reduced the vertical sensibility zone of the buttons, making the click box smaller, and reducing the effective size of buttons, making them harder to click - the unread message count which used to be a nice light blue is now white in a dark grey box, catching the eye more than necessary, slowing me down, and increasing my brain work to focus on what i need to do. also this value is unconsistent; my inbox is curretly shown with 411 total messages, and 630 unread. If i unfold the folder in left column, it seems i have only 89 unread in inbox, and 2 in one subflder, but, to me, 89+2 is not equal to 630. - the file/edit/view menu bar is now BELOW the actions buttons Get/Write/Reply ... - if I roll up the TB windows in the top decoration, any mouse click in the place where the win used to be remains inefficient. So, TB completely broke E17. A shaded win still occupies the screen as if it's unshaded, and more (about 20 pixels below the bottom decoration). - It's 20y the message list was aligned on the top message, so I always made that box half a message taller than an exact message line height multiple, so that the half line white space was a proof I was at the bottom of the list. Now, the list is aligned bottom, and the top line is shown half. I now have no way to know if i am in middle on bottom of list (plus lift is now auto hide).

i don't have any screenshot from previous version for reference. And half issues are bad interactions with E17 about magnetism, and size of click boxes, and this can't be shown on screenshots; even videos would not help if you can't feel it physically, or never used E17 yourself in the past; you can't know how it used to behave.

All these changes have an intense negative impact on my work speed. They slow me down.

TB had almost not changed in 20y of use, but these changes, at the same time, with so many consequences on window manager ... I can't stand it. 20y of habits lost in one evening. Not something you can change at my age.

I have seen only one improvement (bug fix) in recent TB: "save all" attachements works now fine from the menu under the message, and we no longer need to use Save All from top menus (regression bug between TB 1.2 and 1.5, IIRC).

TB version: 115.1.0 (64-bit) Windows 10 (corporate laptop)

Fresh laptop, fresh install of TB.

When trying to connect email@example.com (not really my email), TB correctly detects that my domain is hosted at Google, configures IMAP and SMTP for OAuth2, and pops up the window to authenticate.

Instead of an authentication prompt, I'm met with this error:

URL: https://accounts.google.com/o/oauth2/auth?response_type=code&client_id=<CHOMP>aq8lmia8j<CHOMP>.apps.googleusercontent.com&redirect_uri=http%3A%2F%2Flocalhost&scope=https%3A%2F%2Fmail.google.com%2F+https%3A%2F%2Fwww.googleapis.com%2Fauth%2Fcarddav+https%3A%2F%2Fwww.googleapis.com%2Fauth%2Fcalendar&login_hint=user%40example.com

Text: Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Thunderbird detected a potential security threat and did not continue to accounts.google.com because this website requires a secure connection.

I just want everyone to know, I will NEVER again update Thunderbird. I do not like the constantly changing layouts. I do not like layouts changing without my consent or knowledge. You are NOT user friendly any more. While some may like your approach, I do not. Frankly it seems that most software is becoming less and less user friendly and more like, do it Thunderbird's way or else. I hope someday, someone will put out a simple email client similar to your older issues. Also, I do not like the continual nagging to update.

102.2.2 has really messed things up for me. i can't see any emails after August 9th in any of my Saved Searches, and this is causing real problems.

i've tried deleting the global database and reindexing, but that did nothing.

THUNDERBIRD MIGRATION FROM LENOVO WINDOWS 10 TO ACTIVE DELL WINDOWS 11

Thank you Stan and David for your replies which were helpful but unfortunately I didn't express myself clearly enough for which I apologise.

My USB Thunderbird back-up is from a LENOVO Laptop. The Thunderbird version is 91.2.1 (32 bit) running on Windows 10.

I have new DELL Inspiron with Thunderbird 91.8.1 (64 bit) running on Windows 11. I have successfully found in Mail -

  • Local Folders which contains .msf Filter Rules DAT folders for Trash (File), Trash.msf (MSF File), Unsent Messages (File), Unsent Messages.msf (MSF File)
  • pop3.iprimus.com.au folders for Drafts, Drafts.msf, Inbox,
Inbox.msf,
.msg FilterRules,
.popstate

Sent Sent.msf Trash Trash.msf

In the LENOVO back-up Thunderbird there are no matching like named folders or files to input into the DELL. nor are there any storage files with the extensions (mbox) or (sbd) folders.

SEPARATELY when I initially setup the new DELL I put the back-up USB is port and Thunderbird initial set-up provided a command to load data from that drive which worked ! In that case I selected the top option IMA ?which stored data on the cloud based server ? not the POP option.

What led to this major issue was a need by DELL to delete and repartition the SSD to resolve a problem which I discovered with AVAST and resolved. It was one of these parties that suggested that Thunderbird would automatic convert the old files and set-up appropriately. In all there were 6 individuals involved in at least 2 countries. I have spent countless hours on this new DELL PC with Windows 11. My time is quite stretched hence my delay in responding to your good responses.

Hopefully there's some additional info here which will help resolve the problem of retaining all msgs, folders and addresses.

Thanks again for your time in considering my problem and providing possible solutions.







I set up a new Dell 5510 Inspiron with the latest version of Thunderbird which runs well in Windows 11 environment. Previously when I set up a new PC I followed instructions which created a backup from the superceded Windows 10 Laptop on to a USB file Mozilla Thunderbird. I installed Thunderbird and compared the files and discovered 1 file which had no data in it and copied that data directly into that file and it worked perfectly - bringing across everything contacts, folders etc.

On the new DELL I followed the setup prompts and had no success - I activated the top box to store data, not on cloud but to retain on server. I uninstalled and tried again this time activating the box under the top one to store most historic data on Laptop - again no success. - comparing data was fruitless as there was no file with 0 data

It has been suggested that (with Thunderbird closed, I just copy the Back-up USB Folder "Mozilla Thunderbird" from the Window 10 Laptop over the "Mozilla Thunderbird" in Apps under Settings in Windows 11 and magically all (Contacts and email history in folders ) is supposed to happen. Reason is that the new Thunderbird App does all the conversion and set-up.

reluctant to do this as it's taken 2 weeks to reach this point and I don't wish to over-write those Thunderbird that have been received in that time.

Your advice would be appreciated. I the process as it has been suggested above OR is there another process to be followed ?

Thanking you in anticpation of your time to digest the above and respond accordingly.
