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

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?

Hi Just changed computers and have Thunderbird 102.8.0 64bit installed. All emails present and correct. Trouble is all my addresses are gone. I backed it up from the old computer using MozBackup. I know its old, but not sure how else to do it. Anyhow, although everything else came across from the back up, the email addresses didnt. I thought it might be in my Google account, but that seems to just have all the names but no addresses?? Any ideas??

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.

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 did this many years ago on an old PC but don't remember how. I have a new laptop and I'm trying to import my Outlook PST archive to TB. It contains 30 years of important emails. I'm trying to get away from MS's Office - it's become too expensive.

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?

Thanks in advance.

Hi, I have spent hours this morning trying to diagnose a problem with Firefox Update 115. It is Unstable and I can't Stream Music from Youtube or even Amazon Music. Web pages from sites I use everyday are out of order when displaying text as well. It's a real mess. Now, here's the kicker, I haven't been able to stream my music from both aforementioned websites, but get this, if I use the Incognito Browser, Music streams No Problem. Seems like you guys broke something in the main FF browser. I have spent hours trying to debug this and have concluded that your most recent Update has broken streaming links. I can't rollback the Update and that is even more frustrating. Please Fix This. BTW, your Help Pages really stink. Sorry, but they offer no help when the problem is clearly FF. Kind Regards, Joe White

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.

Transferring profile and cache from one Mac to another to preserve old emails

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.

I cannot complete the integration of my working Gmail account with an established Thunderbird (V.102 in Win10 on PC). It may to be a problem in setup?

My Tbird works with an IMAP waitrose.com (inherited) address supported by my plus.net provider - who is closing all email provision on 30 June. I am assuming once Gmail is operable, I will ensure that everything is backed-up then convert waitrose.com to POP until it is withdrawn (unilaterally), leaving my existing folder-set as history - unless you have any comment on this approach?.

Not having found a sufficiently clear step-solution to adding Gmail, despite searches on Mozzilla Support and a most explanitory report on 'Recovery & Management - How To Import or Export Gmail Email To Thunderbird - https://www.recoveryandmanagement.com/export-gmail-email-to-thunderbird/ - I would like to ask if you might recognise and solve the following for me:

I have progresed to Account Settings - Account Actions - Add Email Account - and entered my Gmail username + addtess@gmail.com (I also tried phone number) + password. Which (after selecting 'Done') failed with the message "Unable to log in at server. Probably wrong configuration, user name or password". I can confirm my 'Name' and/or 'Phone', by successfully opening Gmail (which is also on my desktop).

The Configurations selected are: IMAP, Incoming - IMAP - SSL/TLS - imap.gmail and Outgoing - SMTP - SSL/TLS - smtp.gmail.com, Username - 'name'@gmail.com. There is also a 'Configue manually' option available. I kept a couple of screen-shots recording progress should they be helpful.

Thanks for your time on this.

Hello

I got a new Asus Vivobook Core i9 16G Ram I did the basic Windows 11 installation for the Laptop and installed TotalAV.

After all Windows 11 updates passed, I wanted to install FireFox anf got this issue: Firefox cannot start correctly (0xc0000022) after version ..

I tried several time to close all Firefox task, uninstall, remove all files from existing profiles (local, roaming, etc...) so as all files under "Programs"". I made sure to get the latest code, but I always get back to this issue.

While opening FireFox, I immediatly get a Crashed Tab reported. Even the Settings are not opening in a Tab.

I even tried to use a older version. Same issue... Never the less I can Update the older version in "About FireFox".

After update I see 122 installed

I used FireFox for many years, and wanted to continue.. In the meantime I installed Opera

Any help is appreciated. Thank you in advance Laurent

I got a new computer so I created an acct and set all my open tabs and history to sync. It wasn't intuitive to my not techie brain, but found out how to open all the tabs on the new computer. However, they don't open in the same order (makes it almost useless when you have a lot of tabs), and the tabs don't have their associated history.

Is there some way to have Firefox open tabs and history in the same state on the new device?
