I need to get out of the Beta releases ...88.0b1 (64-bit) ... and back to regular release.

I have tried starting the beta with "Thunderbird --allow-downgrade" but the version remains the same Beta 88.

Whenever I try to download something off my google drive, text pops up in the bottom left corner, but then nothing happens. It works just fine on microsoft edge, so I think its a firefox issue and not a google drive issue. I tried refreshing my browser, deleting my cookies, updating my browser, turning off enhanced tracking protection, and anything else I could think of. Please help.

On another user's account, cannot go back to earlier FF version, profile files missing. Cannot start _any_ revision, old or current (using OSX Sierra on that user & different FF versions - the shared data you see her is NOT the same ) details here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1356226

I don't see the profiles.ini and installs.ini files within the Profiles folder. I see the general format from looking at good ones in my own Profile.

Don't understand why some are "locked."

How do I re-create them using the existing Profile names, and how do I denote which to startup using (the default folder?) Can't find any Help files to explain.

This is driving me mad, we are using the same physical computer because mine broke, so I start it up off an external drive containing my drive, then I have to shut down & restart on the internal drive to work on it, but then I don't have access to my saved files or to post on the forum.

Please tell me how to go back to Firefox "regular" or Ff Beta from Ff Nightly for Android.

I can't stand not being able to bookmark easily and *especially* miss adding bookmarks to my home page(s) and the endless update is interruptive. My phone is very slow as it is. 

Thanks. I am afraid to migrate Firefox "backwards" from Nightly to beta or just ordinary. I lost all my bookmarks a year ago by uninstalling Instagram which somehow wiped out Firefox as well.

Many thanks.

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?

God's morrow, Gentlefolk and folkesses. I'm trying to migrate Thunderbird to a new coputer. Horrified to see that the Thunderbird folder was 26 GB, I deleted thousands of old emails, emptied all deleted item folders, deleted all archives, restarted the computer and then went to check on the size of the new "much slimmer" folder.

After deleting masses of unwanted data, the folder size has INCREASED to 33GB!

What to do?

Windows 10 updated automatically and shut off my Thunderbirds access to the server. Now when I try to re-enter my accounts, I have to do it manually as it does not specify IMAP or SMTP.

I have a dozen Gmail accounts, all basically identical. Just a few letters in the username are the difference. I got one of these to work inbound and outbound. I can’t get any of the others to work with Identical account settings and appropriate passwords for the inbound IMAP side of each account. Outbound I am entering in the same account name and password for every new account matching the SMTP settings of the one account that works.

I have closed and restarted Thunderbird, deleted and reinstalled it, nothing works. With all these maneuvers I just lucked out and got one account to work somehow and I cannot replicate it.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance

Help! I have been stuck on 60.9.1. I tried to upgrade many years ago and lost all my past emails and folders. A search at the time said there was no way to get them back so I reinstalled 60 and have lived there ever since. A couple of weeks ago Google mail changed their security protocols and dropped POP and 60.9 apparently can not read IMAP. I love Thunderbird and would prefer to stay but I don't want to loose all my past emails and folders. So, I would like to upgrade to the latest stable version. Is there a path that won't dump my history? I have read many posts on here but still can't find the path to being current. Can I simply install the latest version or do I have to install in stages. If in stages what is the order of version to install and should I stop at each version to check/test something before moving to the next install?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Not for the first time, I suddenly cannot download any files in firefox (from PDFs to wetransfer links etc.). I have followed every bit of online advice there is. In troubleshoot mode I can download files. However by a process of elimination it is not caused by hardware acceleration, addons or extensions or my avast antivirus. This is really troublesome and I really need to download a lot for work. Performing a refresh every couple of weeks is not the solution.

This problem has been around for at least two years now.

I have windows 10. Was getting a message that Thunderbird could not automatically update and that I would have to download the latest version and install it. I did. I am now on Version 91.10.0 64 bit.

Now every day I get that same message. Thinking its a new download I start to download it only to find its the same EXE file I downloaded last time.

After running the new install, it leaves 2 short cuts on my desktop. BOTH point to the same program name and location.

Is there something wrong with that update? Thanks.

It is 5:46am Sunday morning here in Southern California and again after 3 days of calling Ionos I am not receiving emails sent to me using Thunderbird 102.0.3 especially Spam emails I would like to block and mail in sub folders having saved emails. And this morning I cannot send emails from my TB account. This has been going on for a few days. Back a few days ago I would receive junk/spam mail and add those emails to block list using TB. Now those emails stay in Ionos site mail account and are not forwarded to my TB account. I cannot send emails from my Ionos site when using TB. Why is this a happening and how to fix it. Thanks

I am a Windows 7 Firefox user. A dying computer is forcing transition to Windows 10. I have used Windows Live Mail 12 for years, and have thousands of emails stored in 4 or 5 accounts on the old computer. The Mail program in Windows 10 will not accept a transfer of my emails and profiles, according to Microsoft Support (Microsoft Sales told me it would, but that's another story). Can I export my emails to Thunderbird and then transfer them to Thunderbird on Windows 10? My only other option appears to be Outlook, and that is the road to Hell. Thank you.
