Obviously made an unidentified mistake while backing up my Thunderbird profile: when re-starting Thunderbird after the backup, it installed again and created a new profile. However, this new profile lets me download and upload new messages but does not include a "Mailboxes " folder in "Local Folders". The individual mailboxes and the "Mailboxes" folder still exist in the old profile. I need to recover these into the new profile without loosing the messages I received since the mishap.

I am old and not very savvy about computers and am afraid to screw things up further if I do anything haphazardly.

I see several possible solutions like 1) forcing the use of the old profile (how exactly? would I lose the new messages?), 2) copying the old "Mailboxes" folder and putting it in the new profile, (how exactly and where?), 3) same thing but with the whole old "Local Folders" file and 4) also, there might be better ways than these to handle my problem (how?).

But I am worried that if I try these things willy-nilly, I'll screw things up further or loose the messages I received since the mishap or trigger other bad consequences.

Please help. Thanks

I don't know what happened. I was looking at all the settings, to see why messages I deleted from the server (from my phone) were still coming to Thunderbird. (OK, so that's a different problem). I must have changed something, and now my emails stopped coming into my Local Folders - Inbox. They are now coming into a new Inbox which appears directly under the account, pop.verizon.net.

To see what was happening, I went into Server Settings - Message Storage - Advanced then I try to change it to Inbox for Local Folders, but it asks me ominously if I want to "Defer Account?" so I'm afraid to say yes.

How do I get everything back in the Local Folders?

Thank you for any insight!

I was having the "PRR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR" Secure Connection Error and after going through that whole list of fixes ending with me deleting my firefox account and creating a new one the issue is still happening on sites like youtube after trying to play a video for a bit so i disovered that the two default plugins were giving these messages: OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc. will be installed shortly", "Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc. will be installed shortly." and wont install so at this point I think the final issue I need to solve to 100% fix things is to get these two plugins to finally install but I don't know how to force it to do that

I am using the latest version of Thunderbird (91.5.0 32-bit) and a valid configuration of Amazon workmail.

Using Thunderbird's default wizards and all the settings I can think of, I am not able to integrate Thunderbird with my email accounts.

Using the default wizard, Thunderbird presents me with a dialog "Thunderbird found your account setup information on awsapps.com. Do you want to proceed and submit your credentials" Clicking the [Login] dialog brings up a control which will reads "Use the Microsoft Exchange Server or Office365 cloud service. " When I click Done, I see the dialog for the Amazon workmail client which asks me to submit my username and password where I validate my user name. Closing this dialog, however, leads to a message back in Thunderbird reading "Authentication windows was closed too early"

It seems that Thunderbird is expecting some sort of validation token back from AWS which it never receives.

Hi, After several issues with firefox not opening or loading websites properly, I attempted to do a clear reinstall of firefox. However upon installing I get the following series of issues which prevent firefox from working all together.

Upon starting up Firefox automatically opens the profile manager. On first attempt the "Create Profile Wizard" would not function all together. After manually adding the "Mozilla" and "Firefox" folders to %appdata% it will now open, however the following issues occur regardless of any attempt made on my behalf.

If attempting to save a new profile to the default location the following error occurs

Profile couldn’t be created. Probably the chosen folder isn’t writable. [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80520015 (NS_ERROR_FILE_ACCESS_DENIED) [nsIToolkitProfileService.createProfile]" nsresult: "0x80520015 (NS_ERROR_FILE_ACCESS_DENIED)" location: "JS frame :: chrome://mozapps/content/profile/createProfileWizard.js :: onFinish :: line 239" data: no]

If attempting to save a new profile to a different location the following error occurs when trying to either start up OR quit firefox

An unexpected error has prevented your changes from being saved.

After a times.json file is created

I have tried running in administrator mode, safe mode, everything I could possibly think of, and at this point I am convinced I will never be able to use firefox again despite having loved the browser for over a decade Attempting to find help through the knowledge base has completely failed

Hello

When I try to access a document file from a link on a webpage, Firefox is requiring that I first save the file to my iMac. I do not want to do this, I only want to see the file (word document). This has only just started to occur since I recently upgraded my iMac to MacOS Monterey (12.1).

Can anyone let me know how to stop this happening?

Hello

Many thanks if anyone can simply answer these 3 queries for me!

I don't need explanations etc - even just a 'yes' or a 'no' would be sufficient for me. Or just clear step-by-step guidance as to how to do something.

QUERY: 1. Should I just wait and see if this latest version of Thunderbird will download itself automatically? . . (Though I'm getting fed up with this message coming up every time I go to my emails, and wish I could find a way to shut it up!).

QUERY: 2. How can I be sure that any new version of Thunderbird won't go and alter/remove any of the current features that I like and am accustomed to?

QUERY: 3. If I found it had altered/removed features that I liked etc, could I ever get these re-instated?

MY PROBLEM When I click on 'Download Thunderbird' nothing happens, except that I'm taken to here: https://www.thunderbird.net/en-GB/ No download happens, or not any that I can see. I feel like I've been taken to a 'cul de sac' instead!

Along with this message is always 'We'll help you download it'. Er.... what 'help'?

I'm using the current version of Firefox, which is 95.0.0.2. However, from time to time I get a message saying FF "... could not update itself, so I should manually download and install a newer version". After that, there is a message in the hamburger menu saying "update available - download now".

Has anybody an idea why Firefox thinks there is a newer version than the one I have installed?

Cheers,

Peter
