Hi, helpers! I'm running Tbird 78.8.1 on a new, up-to-date Mac running the latest Big Sur.

I had to wipe my previous computer (long story) and I was careful to export the file containing my old Tbird emails to Dropbox. On the new Mac, I'm using Mac Mail.

I'd like to: 1. import those emails to Mac Mail, OR - if that turns out to be impossible, 2. import them into Tbird on this new computer.

To save the emails before I wiped the old computer, I looked up the instructions and exported the email archive from my profile. The file is named "ymm1vh1i.default". From there I can drill down to: /data reporting/archived/ to two folders, labeled 2021-02, and 2021-03. The first of those contains 27 files; the second, 5 files. All those files end in .jsonlz4. They can't be opened by anything on the Mac.

Can I retrieve those files with either Mac or Thunderbird? And - gawd, I hope the answer isn't "yes" - does this mean there are only 32 saved emails, total?

Thanks so much!

Why is it every time you update you screw everything up? Now the tab bar at the top under bookmarks is replaced with some colored waste of space and tabs at the bottom so metro taskbar pops up and hides it? Customize? And only ONE tab? So sessions are gone entirely? Why constant fear of updating and losing everything and spending hours trying ti fix it AGAIN!???

A week or so ago, a faulty upgrade download trashed my Windows 10. I had it reloaded and am trying to get all my programs up. I have been successful with everything except Thunderbird. Even tho I found what seemed to be my old profile, it doesn't seem to contain contacts/addresses, folders or saved emails. Any help would be greatly appreciated. (I downloaded and installed Thunderbird 78.)

Thanks in advance.

My Win 10 Pro laptop failed, power supply, probably. I took the drive out of it and want to use the profile from it on my new Win 10 Pro laptop. I have installed TB several times, then uninstalled and tried to clear all evidence of it on the new machine, because it wasn't showing my old stuff.

I finally used the process in this article - https://www.groovypost.com/howto/recover-restore-thunderbird-email-profile-backup/ - that seems to match others I found.

I then copied Thunderbird directory from the old drive to AppData in my new machine. Then I started TB with Profile Manager and created a profile using that AppData/Roaming directory.

When I then start TB, I see a momentary count of messages that looks right. But that goes away, and it starts downloading from my email provider - CenturyLink.

Ultimately, the new messages are in local folder in C:/ProgramData, not the roaming directory in %ALLDATA%.

So I tried changing the local directory in Settings/Server Settings for the account and get this message -

The Local Directory path "C:\Users\Vern\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\z4922dk3.default-release" is not suitable for message storage. Please choose another directory.

I've not seen anything to help with this situation, so will appreciate greatly finding a way to recover things.

Yesterday, June 5, I run the Ubuntu software updater and it updated Thunderbird to 78.8.1 and now the 3 email accounts I had are no longer showing up. Instead it just shows Local Folders with Trash and Outbox, all empty. When I check Account Settings, it does have entries for the 3 email accounts for outgoing email (SMTP). There may have been an error during the update as I think there was some message about something that crashed; I may have accidentally started Thunderbird during the update. The email accounts I have are: one with twc and two with gmx.us, IMAP. The email directory tree still seems to be there under: ~/.thunderbird/[random_string].default/ImapMail

So what would be the easiest and safest way to fix this?:

 1) Should I just try to enter the IMAP email information again for the 3 accounts?
 2) Or should I uninstall and reinstall Thunderbird?

And, where is the IMAP server information stored? I think I can recreate it all, but it might be better to use the previous information to start with. Thanks.

Since I find the new Proton GUI a step backwards in usability, I plan to defer the inevitable as long as possible by moving to the ESR version (currently V78).

  1. How long are ESR versions supported?
  2. What is the ESR version release cycle?
  3. I plan to try using the -allow-downgrade command line option when downgrading, but the articles "Install an older version of Firefox" and "Command line options" are a bit short on step-by-step instruction. What is the correct procedure / sequence?
  4. I have serious misgivings that the result will be usable, given the large difference in version numbers. I have made a backup of my profile. Should I have problems with the downgraded profile, I will presumably have to create a new profile. How can I recover data from the backup profile and import it into the new profile?
  5. I am using Firefox Sync and hope that it will relieve me of some of the pain associated with a new profile. I am not syncing History however, because I prefer to keep the histories of my separate Firefox installations on different devices separate. Is there another way to preserve the history from a particular installation?
  6. If not, what can I expect from sequentially turning on history sync on my various Firefox installations?
  7. Will all history be merged or will subsequent history lists overwrite earlier ones?

Any further advice which might prevent me from screwing this up would be most welcome!

I can't seem to install vsn 89. I have vsn 87.0 currently and Netflix won't run without an upgrade. Also, Amazon Prime requires Widevine, which requires a FF upgrade, so I need to upgrade. The best I have been able to do is download the tar file and run Extract on it. According to the file viewer, the latest version of FF is loaded, but when I run the program, it's still v. 87, not 89. The simplest method given is to open the 'About Mozilla Firefox' window and the downloader will run. But there is no downloader running when I do that. I would really appreciate it if someone would supply instructions that actually work.

BTW: I've looked for them, and I don't find the 'required' library items. But if these are truly required and I don't have them, how has FF been running at all these past months? I concluded that either they are installed but I couldn't find them, or they aren't really required at all. I've also tried Flatpack and it doesn't work either.

Currently I am running Thunderbird 52.9.1 on Windows 7, without add-ons, extensions, or Lightning.

I'm setting up a new Win10 PC. I figure it's time to update Thunderbird to a more current version on the new PC.

What is generally considered to be the best and most stable recent version?

I have read the process on how to update from older previous versions that goes like this:

Backup your profile. Then install and run each of the following versions for your OS and language which you will find at http://archive.mozilla.org/pub/thunderbird/releases/ 5.0 for example http://archive.mozilla.org/pub/thunderbird/releases/5.0/win32/en-US/

12.0.1 (15.0.1 skip) 17.0.8 24.8.0 (38.0.8 skip) 45.8.0 52.9.1

Then do Help > About until you get to version 68. Stay on version 68 until you get prompted to update to version 78.

Since I already am at 52.9.1 on Win7 I assume I should:

- backup my 52.9.1 profile on Win7 (see questions below about profile),

- install 52.9.1 on Win10 and run it,

- then do Help > About until I get to version 68. Stay on version 68 until I get prompted to update to version 78.

Is that what I should do?

I will have the same drives and folders structure in place on Win10 as I do on Win7. My plan is to copy my backed up 52.9.1 profile on Win7 to that same corresponding folder on Win10.

Is that what I should do?

Should I copy my backed up 52.9.1 profile from Win7 to Win10 before or after I install 52.9.1 on Win 10?

Should I run 52.9.1 on Win10 for the first time before or after I have copied my backed up 52.9.1 profile from Win7 to that same corresponding folder on Win10?

Is there anything else I should be aware of?

Thanks!

Last night, 6/6/2021, I converted back to version 88 because version 89 was intolerable. In version 88, I told Firefox to not upgrade without my permission, but they over rode that this morning. When I re-installed version 88 last night, I said to do it in a new instance. So I would assume my open tabs from my original FireFox installation are still recorded on my C drive someplace. Can I restore my previously open tabs from my original version? I had a lot of important information that I want to get back to.

I started the PC today and saw a strange thing - the toolkit string was gone. And at first, the system offered to put some left topics. I started to tinker with the settings and did not see how to remove the "innovation". Separately, I found a stupid one who asked to do such a nasty thing. He obviously does not know how to use the F11 button. Conclusion - you need to migrate to a more adequate and traditional browser. But you also need to transfer everything you typed here.

Are there tools for a normal transfer, or do you need to manually edit everything?
