NOTE: I do NOT have a solution, the email with that comment was clicked on accidentally.

Note that when creating a brand new email in Thunderbird with the extra security step, it did NOT utilize OAuth. That is NOT what happens in the new security process.

If I re-create my existing email, will TB glitch? How do I migrate my existing POP folders to the "new" version of the account?

AOL security update by 7DEC21 requires creating a new account, best way to migrate email files? Notably their instructions don't mention this...

Anyone do this already? Any glitches? What's the easiest way to put your old account data into the new one?

How does TB handle the fact that you have two identical emails with separate accounts, differing only in that one-time password?

And how do you access that password entry popup that ONLY appears during account setup?

Howdy, fellow Firefox aficionados.

I'm running FF on a Windows 10 Home 64-bit desktop. Some time ago, I suddenly could no longer open Firefox because it couldn't find my Profile. So, I attempted to create a new one, but it would not allow me to do so.

"Changes Not Saved"

   "An unexpected Error has prevented your changes from being saved."

[See uploaded Image]

More than likely, either I, or one of my system maintenance programs wiped some data or folder. I have deleted Firefox and reinstalled it with the latest version, but this dilemma persists.

Thanks for reading my post and if you reply, a big Thanks!

As the subject says, my download speeds are painfully slow (~200KB/s) and they have been for a while. My download speed is ~85Mbps and I use Ubuntu 20.04.

Installing a download manager extension only improved the speed to ~300KB/s (I tried Multithreaded Download Manager. I also tried increasing the number of threads in preferences to no effect).

The problem has persisted over time and across multiple restarts. This problem does not persist in other applications (Steam, for example).Neither disabling my VPN or running sudo UFW disable affected the speed (didn't restart because UFW disable doesn't require a restart [I think] and due to the above paragraph).

All solutions I have found have been related only to Windows users, hence why I am asking this even though there is a plethora of threads on this same issue. Any responses and help is appreciated!

I have been able to move my profiles and Thunderbird is working correctly. However, I cannot find/get my local folders (the TB equivalent of a PST file) to move to my new system so I can still have access to all those save emails and records. I have searched here and cannot find a clear answer on how to get those files moved. Any help (please dub it down a little for me :) is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Hi All,

formerly there was a "view release notes" button in the update reminder window to check whether the new release is worth the installation or not. This button disappeared several months ago. Is there a way to enable it in about:config? I think that asking about an update makes no point without showing the list of changes...

Thank you,

I've recently migrated to Thunderbird, from Apple Mail. I've managed to establish one email account (which runs through Google email servers) but ran into trouble when I tried to add my iCloud account. I've tried 3 times to add the same account, and it fails every time. On attempt one, I generated an app-specific password to use - however this was rejected by TB - the message being : 'unable to login at server. Probably wrong configuration, username or password" I made sure the user name was entered correctly (ie without the '@iCloud.com' part, and checked the password was correctly entered. I also checked the port settings, server addresses etc. Please see attached file.

I also generated a new app specific password and tried that - same result. I tried the original iCloud password too - still no luck.

Please help...

Thunderbird recently updated and I lost ALL my emails :(

I am using IMAP - now the emails have synced they are also gone from the ISP server.

I googled some solutions and can see in the /user/appdata there is a folder called "mail" which looks like it has all my old inbox folders and msf files .... however the new Thunderbird update looks like it is using a new folder structure "imapmail" which I can see does not have any of my old emails folders or msf files in there.

I copied all the files from the "mail" folder over to the "imapmail" folder and relaunched Thunderbird. I can now see the old folder structure under my inbox however I get an error message when I go into the folder "unable to open the summary "xxx". Perhaps there was an error on disk, or the full path is too long"

When I right click and go to folder properties there is no location path.

I need my emails and so disappointed an update has caused me to loose EVERYTHING ... please help!

Moving Tbird Profile folder - Tbird fails to see Profile on new PC

To move my Thunderbird Profile to a new computer (Windows 7 to Windows 10 Pro), I used the instructions at: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/moving-thunderbird-data-to-a-new-computer#thunderbird:win7:tb91

I followed the instructions exactly. After pasting my profile, I opened Thunderbird. it is telling me "Your Thunderbird profile can not be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible".

BEFORE I moved my profile to the new computer, the profile on the new computer has 2 files with random characters. AFTER moving the profile from the old to the new computer, the new computer had 4 files with random numbers in the profile folder. The file I copied on the old computer was the "Profile" folder. When pasting, the new computer did not ask if I wanted to replace the folder. After pasting, I opened Thunberbird and got the error shown above.

I decided to delete the Profile folder on the new computer. I then pasted the profile folder from my old computer. The profile folder on the new computer shows the 2 files with random numbers. I still got the error shown above when I opened Thunderbird.

I'm trying to copy my Firefox from one Android phone to another. Is there any way to separate the history that's on my phone from what I have on my PC when I do a sync? I really don't want to have the history from the PC sync to the new phone if possible. Also, I noticed that when I rebooted the phone and open Firefox back up, it has a list of inactive tabs. Is there a way to back them up or sync them to the PC, too? Maybe it'd be easier if Firefox had a way to copy my profile from my phone, but I haven't found a way to do it. Thanks.

I'm trying to move TBird from my Macbook Air to my iMac. I've followed the directions in the " Moving Thunderbird Data to a New Computer " FAQ, but when I start TBird it still asks me to set everything up from scratch. I've deleted Tbird from the iMac and installed it fresh before copying the Thunderbird folder from the Air to the iMac. This doesn't help. What could be going wrong? Why does Tbird act like it doesn't see the profile I copied over from the Macbook Air?
