Long time Firefox/Mozilla user. Installed/upgraded/migrated on Win, Android, Linux (various distros) over the years.

This might also be relevant to the Sync topic.

Built a new Win 10 system 11/21. Installed Firefox, logged in and Enabled Sync. Installed licensed Adobe photo editing software. No problems. Used for 2 weeks.

Spent 5 months in hospital.

Back home, used new PC for ~45 days; Win 10 went wiggy on me after an update - could not get to Settings menu ya da ya da. It went downhill from there. No identifiable hardware issues (tested memory and (.m2) boot drive, etc

Tried many fixes to Windows while trying to keep user data. Ended up reinstalling Win 10 (multiple times...). System working, but no bookmarks/passwords. Installed Firefox. Of course, it didn't work - understandibly.

Went to old PC, Firefox does not seem to give me the option to *see* my login password); looked up Firefox password (I hated to do it, but with ~500 userid/passwords, I started to let FF manage these a few years back). Found it. Went to new box and logged in. Password error. Digging deeper, it *appears* that the present password was set circa 2015 and the Firefox saved password was set circa 2021.

I've now been fussing with this a week. Searching, searching; trying pretty much everything I can think of. Nothing works.

Any path forward besides changing passwords on all of the involved (~20+) devices?

Now I need to try to recall where I put the recovery key ... (yes, I have since embarked on an extensive backup/restore point campaign which includes backing up backup system software).

duplicate. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1388293

Reading the several comments on this subject has not led to a solution. The Firefox Setup 81 and Installer are sitting in the downloads file, but when I click either "Open" or "Run as Administrator" I get a Windows "For security and performance Windows 10 in S mode...." followed by two options "Learn more" or "Switch out of S mode". When I choose the latter the "Switch out of S mode" page arrives. Now what? Thanks.

After having to reinstall Windows 10, I reinstalled TB. I ran it once and then closed it. Then I went to the old profiles folder, copied all items and pasted all into the current profile. I restarted TB and it appears that all other email accounts are ok. but an important local folder is missing. If I search for an email that I know was in it in the global search, that email is found. Unfortunately, it shows as not being associated with any account; it shows "none". The little snippet of text seems right but the full email cannot be opened.

Even though it was just two days ago that my computer had locked up, I am wondering if somehow I had been using an older version of TB than I downloaded today. The reason I say that is that in the old profile there were no local folders showing in the mail subfolder only three folders for my three mail accounts. Yet I had this important local folder as part of my thunderbird data.

I am hoping that somehow I can make this missing folder usable again.

We use Firefox ESR in our enterprise and have been using 32bit for a very long time even though we have all Windows 64 bit OSs, we are now attempting to move from Firefox 68.x ESR 32bit to Firefox 78.x ESR 64bit. The issue we are seeing is the Firefox profile does not automatically get picked up after the upgrade has taken place, our process is to uninstall the previous version and then install the new version. We know we can recover the profile by opening the browser and going to about:profiles but asking a user community or thousands makes it a little difficult on our end user support. Is there a way to automate the profile move during the upgrade of the browser in this scenario? Also not that a lot of our users have more than one profile in thier user folder so if there is an automated way of doing this how can we tell which profile is their current default profile?

Hi

I've just uninstalled Firefox as I somehow managed to have the beta version and the constant upgrades were driving me nuts. I now have 81.0 main version for Windows 10 64-bit. For many years I have kept my Profile folder on the D: drive for backup purposes. Having downgraded (by one version?) it won't let me use the old profile. Normally if I rebuild a PC or migrate, I edit %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\profiles.ini and point it to the profile on the D: drive but now I just get told to either create a new profile or exit.

How can I retrieve all my bookmarks, passwords and other preferences from my old profile?

Thanks John

How can I transfer my emails (.EML) into Thunderbird? It would appear there was a 3rd party add on to do it with versions up to 60. But I cannot seem to download that old version but rather get version 78.3.1 and the add-on does not work with the new Thunderbird.

I have been a user of Thunderbird for several years and have synchronised my Address Book with my Google Contacts using gContactSync. I have just had my computer cleaned up and Windows 10 reinstalled. As part of this exercise, my Thunderbird is now at Iss 78.3.1. When I try to install gContactSync as an Add-On, it tells me it is not compatible with this issue of Thunderbird. I am not very computer literate. Help!

I'm a long-time user of Thunderbird, and have a whole load of old emails stored in it. Which was fine, until my PC died last month taking my HD with it.

No problems, I have backups, but how to apply them to my new rig?

As I understand it, all my stuff is stored in these two folders (retrieved from my backup):

C:\Users\my-name\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\yun4892o.default C:\Users\my-name\AppData\Local\Thunderbird\Profiles\yun4892o.default

When I install Thunderbird on the new PC, it puts two folders in each of the Profiles folders: km5c5jql.default-release and y3kx2mde.default (the second of which is empty apart from a single times.json file in the Roaming version).

I tried removing the profile folders created by the new install and copying the yun4892o ones in instead, but when I launch Thunderbird, it says "Your Thunderbird profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible."

So what do I do? Do I perhaps copy some of the contents of the yun4892o folder into one/both of the new folders? I really don't want to lose all my old email!
