I have changed from Ubuntu to MX Linux recently and have kept my Thunderbird profile data.

On MX TB 78 is installed.

When I copy the Ubuntu TB profile folder to my new MX install and start Thunderbird I get a message saying that "You have launched an older version of Thunderbird" (which is not the case, I launched versions 78) and that I can either create a new profile or quit the program..... Not very useful.

How can I use/import the data from my previous (Ubuntu) install? It seems likely that I had version 78 on Ubuntu as well, my system was up-to-date, but of course I can't check that anymore.

Thanks

T.

I've been happily using Thunderbird for email for many years. Recently, the gmail OAuth2 requirement has made my POP3 accounts quit working. Currently on 38.5 for Windows 10.

Following various posts, I've tried to convert two specific email accounts to imap, and things are not going well.

My primary email is already imap and works fine. I've tried multiple times to convert the other two, and my current state is I've deleted those two accounts entirely (via Account Actions). When I try to install Existing Account, I eventually get to the point where the server config seems correct, but hitting "Done" results in the above message. I'd be surprised if imap.gmail.com can only support one email address. The emails are named differently, and use different passwords. Imap is enabled via browser based access to both accounts.

Incoming server imap.gmail.com:993 Outgoing smtp.gmail.com:465

I am a long time Thunderbird user. I am moving to a new PC. I used the procedure that you recommend to move Thunderbird (excellent, easy-to-follow), but it only moved one account.

I had one Verizon.net account with another Verizon.net alias to that account. When Verizon switched their email hosting to AOL (they bought both AOL and Yahoo) the alias became the account and the account became the alias. To Thunderbird, it looks like two different accounts.

After the switch, I continued to store emails in the now-alias account folders. When I restored my 23 GB of emails, the alias account folders did not transfer.

Since I stored some vital information in those folders, I need to either (1) copy the folders to my new PC or (2) keep my 11-year-old PC running. What should I do?

I'm not exactly sure what this is called. Maybe it's in the cache, but I don't know. One of the fastest timesavers I have is that I use the Firefox url feature that makes suggestions as soon as I start typing a url. I pull up dozens, possibly hundreds of articles that I refer to frequently this way, so that I don't have to bother bookmarking them. I don't clear the cache, to keep these references from disappearing. I have to move computers now. My longtime mac is not working well anymore. Is there any way to bring these url suggestions with me when I migrate? Thank you.

I tried re-installing TB 91.11.0 and restoring my profile folder, but I still cannot access my old folders, accounts, or profiles.

What did I do wrong? Is there any way to get back to a working Thunderbird? I have numerous backups of my old Thunderbird profile folder.

My old Windows 7 PC laptop died. I used Thunderbird with a personal profile gmail address I will call Profile 1, and another email address I created from my online website that no longer exists, and I will call it Profile 2. I'm now running Windows 11 on a new PC. I downloaded a new Thunderbird program on the new PC. I attached the old Win 7 hard drive to the new PC and used Mozbackup to restore my old profile using my previous .pcv file backup. Profile 1 restored, but with emails only back to 2017. Profile 2 was not restored at all. Please help. Thank you.

New Thunderbird (on Linux) does not convert old .mab address book file

I recently had to re-install Kubuntu 20.04 on a laptop. In the process of setting up Thunderbird, the installation process said it had found address books and asked if I wanted to connect them. Sounded like a time-saver, so I said "Yes." What got connected were several completely irrelevant files, most CSV contacts from my cell phone, but the extensive .mab file from the old version of Thunderbird was not there.

I have found some proposed solutions that tell me to

 >> shut down Thunderbird,
 >> rename the abook.sqlite files in my profile folder,
 >> copy to the old abook.mab file (which I have on a backup disk) into my profile folder, and
 >> restart Thunderbird, which will than automatically convert the old .mab file to the new .sqlite format.

That doesn't work. First problem is, I don't have a "profile" folder. I do have a profile.ini FILE which points to two other folders named (approximately) a1b2c3d4.default and z9y8x7w5-default-release (I've changed the exact names, but the name format is as shown).

Second problem is, my a1b2c3d4.default folder (which, in older versions, was where my abook.mab file was found) had no .sqlite files. My z9y8x7w5-default-release folder has several such files but named abook-4.sqlite, abook-16.sqlite, and abook-17.sqlite. They are all shown as 256 KB. When I added the old abook.mab file to that .default-release folder, it did produce an abook.sqlite file, also shown as 256 KB. But the old abook.mab file's content does not appear when I restart Thunderbird and look at the address books. No abook.sqlite file was created in my a1b2c3d4.default folder.

The references I've found so far appear to be for Windows installations, so I'm hoping someone will have suggestions more suitable to the Linux environment.

For reasons that will likely never be known Thunderbird stopped yesterday. Clicking on the icon showed the spinning icon for a second or two and then ended without the application starting. It had been running flawlessly for several years.

I checked with task manager, nothing from Thunderbird. I restarted. Same problem.

So, I found and installed the beta version which is working fine but I've lost my address book and message filters.

I can re-create the filters easily, but would prefer not to have to re-create the addresses. Is there a way to find the old address book(s) and use them?

Thanks -dmd-

Today I upgraded from TB 92 (ish, not sure exactly) to 102 and am having a problem with unified folders.

I have five email accounts in TB, and use unified folders. In the previous version, if I clicked on a single account under Inbox, I would see emails in the inbox for just that account. Clicking on the top-level Inbox node would show me all emails in the inboxes of all five accounts.

However, in v102, when I click on the top-level Inbox node, the messages panel does not change. Whatever was there before remains.

If I click on the top-level Inbox node, then restart TB, which starts it up with that node selected, I get a panel that has various buttons for setting things up, about TB, etc.

Is there a way to go back to the old behaviour, and have the top-level Inbox node show all inbox messages?

Thanks
