HI all.

I have been using Thunderbird successfully for a long time and have quite a substantial amount of stored info in the 'profile'.

My old Win 10 PC died so I was unable to migrate my Thunderbird service to my new Win 10 PC via the method shown in Help topics on this site. But, I did always back up what I thought was my 'profile folder'. The one that has the title format xxxxxxxxx.default. Reading the instructions in the Help article, I realise that I really needed to back up the entire 'Thunderbird' folder if I was to use it later for migration.

I am where I am, so is there any way I can recover any data from my old xxxxxxxx.default folder such as Emails/Contacts/Local Folders etc?

Thanks for reading

When trying to sign in for 1st time on Thunderbird I keep getting error saying unable to log in at server. I am using an AT&T acct tied to Yahoo. I was using Windows Live Mail but got 3 days it would not send or receive mail. So I thought I would try Thunderbird. Using same credentials as I did before and as I can with yahoo. Don’t understand why I’m getting this error. Can I get some help please. Thanks

I am running Thunderbird 78.5.0 on Windows 10. I am trying to copy a subset of my local folders to Outlook 365, but all the software I can find insists on looking for files of type MBOX. However, my profile contains no MBOX files. There are directories and subdirectories of type "sbd", and pairs of files of type "msf" and no filetype. Has anyone solved this problem?

I have just made the mistake of downloading one of the almost daily "updates".

It has totally f'd-up my files. All the read emails have disappeared - I needed to respond to some of them. I have a folder "Retain" - this has been cleared of all these important emails. There's now f'all in my Archives.

There's an old maxim - If it aint broke - don't fix it! For crissake - learn and observe it!

Recently, it seems, Moz has been afflicted with some ninny-nanny who is determined to change everything - perhaps they imagine they are improving stuff - they aren't!

I've downloaded and installed version 78.4.3 of Thunderbird onto my new (to me!) laptop, and having configured it apparently correctly, the connection to the imap server times out after 100 seconds or so.

I've installed Windows 7 (at my own risk!), Firefox and Avast-free, and am using the configuration settings Thunderbird advise for tiscali users. I copied the latest TBird profile from my old laptop into the Profile folder. The User Name and Ports are the same as those on my old laptop, on which TBird works fine.

I've temporarily disabled email scanning in Avast.

I'm now at a complete standstill, going round in circles, with resultant frustration!

Any comments, suggestions etc, bearing in mind my limited computer expertise, gratefully received.

Hello!

I'm getting an error message from Firefox whenever I try to open it that my profile is missing or cannot be accessed (see attached image).

I have tried everything from the help articles so far, and nothing worked. I deleted the profiles.ini file, I deleted the entire Firefox folder under Application Support, I have deleted Firefox and reinstalled it. None of that worked.

Even when I try to create/delete/save my profile over the Terminal, I get the attached error message.

I love using Firefox, but I simply cannot use it this way. No matter if I use the default, developers or nightly version.

If anyone has an idea how I could fix the issue I would be incredibly thankful.

Thank you already in advance for your help!

Move thunderbird profile from one partition C with all apps to another partition Y with all files/data

I'm stumped. Using this URL https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profiles-where-thunderbird-stores-user-data#w_moving-a-profile I've backed up files to an external drive. Then followed the instructions "Restoring to a different location" which in my case is another partition on the same hard drive. It just does not work.

I create a new folder, Thunderbird, and a new profile in it on Y using the link in the instructions @ 2. Use the Thunderbird Profile Manager to create a new profile in your desired location by ... Press Windows Key +R on the keyboard to open the Run dialog. Then enter "thunderbird.exe -p" and click OK. exit the Profile Manager ...

Profile created and I see the file in Thunderbird folder on Y drive, path Y\Jim\Thunderbird\t55nr5v1.jim-combined. Profile manager sees default profile name on c partition and new profile on y partition. Try to launch Thunderbird with jim-combined profile. I deselect use selected profile at startup and start.

First time no start up-no error messages. Second dbl click it starts to default on c partition. A t55nr5v1.jim-combined folder has been created in the Y partition but at the root folder, Jim, and not in the Thunderbird folder that was selected when creating the new profile-this folder is MT.

I re-open the profile manager as above, thunderbird.exe -p, and the new profile created is no where to be found. I start the program from here and default on C opens.

Close program, move t55nr5v1.jim-combined, which has a file times.json in, in to the Thunderbird folder as originally set up and open profile mgr. Nothing.

I do not think Thunderbird can work on a drive that is partitioned? If it can can someone tell me how. I've lost hours and my C partition is out of space and the 2+ GB of files needs to move.

I tried another section that was on this page a few days ago but is now gone that talked about editing the the profile.int. Tried all the iterations of // or \\ absolute to relative paths, changing to 1 to 0 all w/o any luck.

This page, https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/moving-thunderbird-data-to-a-new-computer, was much more helpful at showing what going up 3 levels means. The way the help page I'm using is written it very unclear to me.

Any help would be appreciated -- jim

Hello. I downloaded a Netgear driver update utility zip file (??) and for some reason I got confused when it said it would open it with Windows Explorer... and I decided to have it opened with Firefox instead. To add dumb insult to dumb injury, I checked the box to have downloads do that with ALL files like that going forward. If i click on that downloaded file, more than 175 tabs open up before i can make it stop. How do I undo this? Thank you kindly in advance

Why would an addon need full unrestricted access to my computer, or even full unrestricted access to Thunderbird for that matter?

Does the Thunderbird team do any vetting of addons? Maybe they had that kind of access before, but in 78 a popup displays saying what kind of access will be used when installing it from an .xpi file.

This came up when installing the Send Later addon for 78.

And the copied image file is broken due to unknown reasons. Here I added one picture. It shows the result when I paste a said jpg image from pixiv.net to somewhere else (like a word document page). This issue happens with firefox 83 and firefox beta 84. It never happens with firefox 82. I don't know what caused this issue.

Firefox Nightly does not recognize any programs.

For example, when I download a configuration file from Zoom, it asks me what to do with that file.

Usually, My firefox recommends me some programs or I can browse through a few suggestions.

With Firefox Nightly, there is absolutely nothing suggested... I need to browse to the programs .exe file.

Why is that? Is that so because I got both browsers installed?? This is very annoying. I would like to use the nightly version. It seems not to have that "loading" issue of websites which my firefox always has.

I have followed the instructions given on the help page (Moving Thunderbird Data to a New Computer). When the Thunderbird opens all the data appears to be there. But when I then close the program and it is then reopened Thunderbird opens without any data. When I click on "Help" on the menu bar and select "Troubleshooting Information" nothing opens, all the itemson the menu bar do not show anything when clicked.

I have been trying to sort this for 2/3 days, and looking at all the support information without any success.

I hope someone can help as the old computer has lost it's ability to connect to the internet otherwise I would email all the emails I wish to transfer to another account and then email them back to the new computer.

Keep safe in the troubled times.
