Dear community,

Transferring my passwords from an old profile backup (v 49) to a profile in a newer version of Firefox (v 77.01). I'm copying across the logins.json and key4.db files like it says here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recovering-important-data-from-an-old-profile#w_passwords. but it still doesn't seem to show my passwords in the new Firefox version when I look in the preferences. I did happen to notice that the key file version is named 'key3.db' in the old profile whereas the corresponding file in the new profile is 'key4.db'. I don't think they're compatible. My question is can I move my passwords from the old profile to the new profile in Firefox v 77.01? Please can you tell me if I can do it offline/locally like this? I don't want to do it with Firefox sync. I'm currently having problems signing into Firefox sync so that isn't an option.

Kind regards,

Matt

But after todays update 78.2.2, this feature does not work on my mac MacOS 10.15.6

When using this command line, thunderbird opens but without any content.

How to do now a command line start of Thunderbird on a target profile?

After realizing that I was not receiving emails that had been sent to me (over a period of 24 hours), my ISP tech support and I traced the likely cause to what may be a bug in the Thunderbird 78.2.2 update, that had installed itself on my computer exactly 24 hours earlier: the update had somehow rendered the ISP's email account Security Settings invalid, which prevented reception of incoming emails. The tech support had been receiving similar email malfunction reports from other users since September 10, 2020 -- which was when this update was first released -- and we tested the hypothesis by changing my Security Settings for this ISP email account to "none", which fixed the problem.

A security setting of "none" isn't ideal, so I would like to bring this issue forward to the Tbird tech team, to see if they are aware of it.

Thanks, in advance, for your support.

I recently returned to my home computer after having been away from it for a few months.

When I pulled up Thunderbird; I found that all of my e-mails (including folders) are gone. I am wondering if the e-mail accounts may have become disconnected from the program.

Where can I go to see if the files are still there & how do I re-associate them with my account?

Hi, So I recently reset my windows PC, logged back into my firefox account on it and my bookmarks aren't coming back, it's showing my desktop's bookmarks on my android phone (from before when I reset my PC), but the bookmarks aren't being transferred back to the actual bookmark toolbar on my desktop. I could manually copy and paste all the bookmarks from my phone but I think this would take quite a while.

I tried "connect to another device" but when I press "Scan" on my phone, aim it at the QR code on my desktop, it just says "Did you use the system camera? You must pair from within a Firefox app." from within firefox on android.

I just want to be able to get my bookmarks back on my desktop.

Thanks.

This is driving me nuts. All of a sudden, I can't search for anything using Google without being asked for verification. You might well have seen this page before:

'I'm not a robot' check box

Our systems have detected unusual traffic from your computer network. This page checks to see if it's really you sending the requests, and not a robot. Why did this happen?'

Which leads to the inevitable Select All Images With Traffic Lights etc pop ups. This is ONLY happening on Firefox, Chrome allows me to search on Google and Chrome is what I'll be using from now on if this doesn't get fixed.

Hi there. I'm a blind web developer and I was wondering if there is some way to make the Firefox developer console more screen reader friendly. As it stands, I have no way of viewing JavaScript runtime errors or much of anything besides the element hierarchy when inspecting an element, and even this only provides very little information. I ask because there seems to be a big focus lately on testing for accessibility, but the tools to do so seem completely inaccessible themselves.

I would welcome any suggestions on how to use/improve the dev tools with a screen reader (I'm using NVDA) or an add-on I can down load that would be more friendly to me. I saw a mention of one called "Firebug", but that appears to be an outdated post.

I have used Thunderbird for a while and had saved emails from a lineone account. Until recently I had the regular folders available (inbox, sent, junk etc) for the account available in Thunderbird.

The actual email account itself was opened about 15 years ago and couple of years changed so I could no longer gain access to the email account but the emails remained in Thunderbird as did the folders.

I now need to access some of the emails from the account that should be on Thunderbird but have found that all folders have disappeared except for the inbox, which is empty.

I have searched for the emails in a global search on Thunderbird and it finds emails from the account but I cannot open the emails. Also, when carrying out the search it details the email account where the emails are found in the column on the left hand side of the screen and the account with the missing emails is shown there so the emails have not been deleted.

Can anybody help me to restore or access the emails from the missing account (I think it is a pop3 account) or to access the emails when carrying out the search.

Please note I only have basic knowledge of Thunderbird so if you could keep any responses in simple terms!!

Many thanks for your anticipated assistance

I tend to be working on either of 2 PCs so have, for many years, been running Thunderbird with the profile on a shared NAS drive (z:\thunderbird\cc5rdcry.default). The 2 PCs, both have TB setup identically (C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Thunderbird\thunderbird.exe). The Appdata of both contains identical Installs.ini and Profiles.ini files - the profiles.ini for both is: [Install8216C80C92C4E828] Default=z:\thunderbird\cc5rdcry.default

[Profile0] Name=default IsRelative=0 Path=z:\thunderbird\cc5rdcry.default Default=1

[General] StartWithLastProfile=1 Version=2

One PC is running Win10, the other Win 7.

The profile is linked to 4 email addresses.

This week the WIn10 PC updated TBird to version 78.2.1, and now, on that PC I get the "New Account Hub for centralized account setup", and the other shows a message ""You have launched an older version of Thunderbird" which then goes on to say the profile was changed by a newer version.

When the new "hub" appeared I closed down TBird, went to the profiles.ini and changed the profile to point to the one on the NAS, but it made no difference.

If I click on the "hub" address book it brings up most of my collected email addresses, but not "organised" as they were in the profile.

I tried running the profile manager, but it only showed default, so was not sure whether to use that.

HELP!!!
