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.

Happy New Year all volunteers, In W10, after crash all my applications, and their setup/data got wiped out. Tbird worked before like charm. Then it was a new installation 2 years ago. I moved mail data from Vista Mail on a Toshiba PC to my then new GP PC, with W10. Now, I have to re-install all the apps, and try to import/collect data. Luckily, my Vista PC is still working, so I can recover things from there. So, in Vista Mail i exported contacts, tried .csv, and .vcf. Csv seemed to work, however the import in Address Book was not functional. The names and e-mail addresses were mixed up. Then, I tried .vcf: with a single contact it works fine, but not with a list of .vcf files. Then, I found the advice to create one .vcf file for all contacts via copy *.vcx merged.vcf. The file got created, and looks fine. The windows contact too can open it, one-by-one. Windows10 Mail can handle it also. But, when I try to import this in TB I got as far as START import. Then, the message "Import failed unexpectedly, more information may be available in the Error Console". I do not see error console, and more hints. I must tell, extracting contacts from GMAIL works too. But, unfortunately I do not have set up gmail so that it saved all contacts upon referencing, so I just have a subset of contacts there... Do you guys have a working solution, or is this a new chart again ? By the way, the TB version is the newest one, a guess it is 102. Cheers, Zoltan

After today's update to version 98 Firefox keeps saving files to the Downloads folder when I don't want it to, I just want to open them, but not keep them, with this new behaviour the Downloads folder keeps filing up with useless clutter.

For example, before the update, when I downloaded a .zip file, a pop-up would show up asking if I wanted to save the file or open it with an application. If I chose to save it it would be saved to the Downloads folder, and if I chose to open it nothing would be saved to the Downloads folder.

After the update, when I download a .zip file, Firefox always saves the file to the Downloads folder, even if I choose to open it.

Can you please tell me if there is a way to make Firefox behave like in the previous version?

Hello,

My webhost provider switched my domain last week. And Thunderbird is now a complete mess. They combined the names of the two domains and I'm not sure if I delete this email address I'll be in trouble because they've tied it to WordPress. All the pathways and files I've looked at - why I don't know because I don't really understand what I'm seeing - show the old email names and such. I've been pleading and begging for assistance to straighten out this mess, but without success. Also I'm prompted to login but Thunderbird won't recognize either the old ones nor the new ones I've created.

What I'm wondering is should I remove the current install and start again. And, if I start again, are the instructions easy for this poor senior's tech-phobic brain to follow?

(I'm not sure I trust the tech support at my provider since they keep saying I created the blended email address. This is entirely untrue: I created the one I wanted them to have done in the first place... and ended up deleting the contents of the old email in the process! =:o) Thank you, Zoe

I can't get Thunderbird to open my profile. I am using Linux Mint 20.3 as op system and latest version of TB 91.5.0. I had TB open on my computer but it stopped recognising my accounts. I closed TB and then opened again to see the TB start page (set-up wizard). I have read the information at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profiles-where-thunderbird-stores-user-data and http://kb.mozillazine.org/Recovering_a_missing_profile and followed the advice there as best I can. In summary everything I do just results in the same situation and TB not loading my profile. I have used TB for years (including transferring profiles across computers) and never had a problem like this before. I freely admit I am no 'techie' so may just have got things wrong but I am at a loss to know what to do as I don't want to loose all my filed emails. Happy to provide any information/screenshots requested. Any assistance will be very gratefully received. (my time zone = UTC+0)

My PC had a sudden and total crash just recently and left me no option but to wipe the drive and do a clean install of everything.

After I had put Windows 11 back on plus other software, I reinstalled Thunderbird as well.

However it will only download emails from the reinstallation date and nothing prior.

Any advice on how to rectify this?

Is there perhaps something in SETTINGS that I need to look at?

I keep getting an error message (see uploaded image) that says Thunderbird can't update to the latest version and to download it manually. When I look at the About for Thunderbird, it says it already is the latest version (see uploaded image). So, I ignored that error message the first few times, but when it kept appearing, I downloaded and installed the update (after backing up the Profile folder in case of mishap; see uploaded image). It said it was installing and then the Install box disappeared (it did NOT say "You already have this version" and stop installing); I assumed it had finished (although, it never asked me to do anything, even though the error message implied I'd need help, and I couldn't see any difference in Thunderbird after it finished). Today, I got the error message AGAIN (even though I updated yesterday). What does it want me to do? Is it updated, or not? I'm confused.

I tried to use TB's tools>import>import from Outlook but I get an error message saying "no profile is found".

Can I do this within TB or do I need a 3rd party app? If so, is there a reliable one?

I was cleaning out my hard drive and deleting old installs of Microsoft Visual Studio Redistributable packages, and I almost certainly deleted the one that Firefox relies on.

I then attempted to start Firefox, getting the error, "The code execution cannot proceed because VCRUNTIME140_1.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem."

I uninstalled, following the clean install directions, and deleting the "Program Files/Mozilla Firefox/" directory.

Then, I ran the Firefox Installer, newly downloaded, and when running it, it gives the same error, "The code execution cannot proceed because VCRUNTIME140_1.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem." Selecting "Restore Defaults" has no effect either way. The installer then appears to complete in the background, and the Firefox directory is created, along with the executable.

When I run Firefox.exe, it seems to load the program, but any address I type in fails to begin loading. This includes websites (www.google.com) and help/utility pages (about:config). I'm therefore unable to change any settings within Firefox.

I then tried re-installing the "Visual C++ 2008" and "Visual C++ 2015-2019" packages in an attempt to restore that DLL, but that had no effect after repeating the same steps above (clean uninstall, re-install). Which VC++ Redist Package should I be re-installing? Ideally, I should be able to just get a copy of VCRUNTIME140_1.dll and place it where Firefox is looking for it.

4-1-22. Not a joke. Been using Thunderbird email program for 20-30 years. I routinely down load gmail which was working. Refused to download comcast.net. Would not accept any password despite changing password on Xfinity's site. Help showed that the version on my computer was BETA. I never load BETA anything. Went to your site and downloaded and older January link. Nothing worked with anything older that I tried. It tried to make me start over with the IMAP and POP. I am afraid that I may have lost my addresses and 20 years of email archive. It probably took me over 1 week to link to gmail and comcast years ago. Will I have to do this again?

I have a complete c:\ back-up. from a week ago. If I recover the partition, will Thunderbird at least work with gmail again or has there been some major change with Thunderbird?


A prompt answer would really be appreciated.

Hi. I have transferred the following two directories from one Mac installation to another Mac:

  • `~/Library/Thunderbird/Profiles/`
  • `~/Library/Caches/Thunderbird/`

The new installation had already created some default profile, so I updated the `~/Library/Thunderbird/profiles.ini` to point to the profile name of the copied one:

``` [Profile0] Name=default-release IsRelative=1 Path=Profiles/0######2.default

[General] StartWithLastProfile=1 Version=2

[Install712DAF56ABCDEFGH] Default=Profiles/0######2.default Locked=1 ```

With that, all the accounts and passwords are available. On to the issue: I have a cache of old emails from email accounts that I have deleted over the years. These emails are only accessible in the old machine, and are not showing up in the new one.

For instance, the accounts ending in `~` are deleted (on the server) and only show an empty "Inbox" folder on the new machine while the old machine lists all folders and emails within them.

Is it possible to make the emails from the deleted accounts accessible on the new machine, too? Thank you.
