After doing a BIOS update on my HP desktop, it corrupted the Windows 10 OS, and a reinstall was necessary. My original Thunderbird profile was saved, but copying the profile files to the new profile did not work. I have added images in Explorer of the files in both the original and the new Thunderbird. I would very much appreciate any help. Thanks!

Help replicating Windows Live Mail 2012 behavior for threads and contacts

Hi there,

My dad's windows live mail 2012 (windows 10) index or something else finally crapped out and he decided to try another email program (finally!). My experience with thunderbird on windows is easily over a decade old, but I remember good things about it and have tried it on linux somewhat recently with decent results, so have been suggesting it to my dad as an alternative. We downloaded, installed, and tried it out over team viewer.

Setting up gmail IMAP was fairly straightforward, but I've struggled with some data migration and to get TB to replicate features in WLM2012 and that took me by surprise. I was also surprised that the default download (78.1.1) on mozilla's website uses the 32-bit version, but found out that 64-bit is not officially supported.

I've googled and looked at some add-ons (almost all were grayed out as unsupported, which wasn't a good look), but have struggled to get contact migration to work properly. I tried exporting a .csv from WLM2012 and importing into TB, but it was a nightmare to line up the columns. TB also would not import multiple .vcf files or take a compiled version generated from the cmdline. In the end I found that importing .vcf files into gmail and then exporting them as a .vcf file for iOS imported the best into TB, but some work related fields were ignored, unfortunately. Does someone have a recommended way to migrate contacts that preserves all the fields? I was also shocked that the search field for the contacts only searches names and email whereas WLM2012 searches all fields and is a lot better!

Some sites I found mentioned a config editor, but each page seemed to have a different way of accessing it and it seems like it is more and more hidden with later versions and I have no idea how to get to it with TB78. Is it gone or just really hidden? I would like to change the threading behavior to match WLM2012 as the TB threading behavior is aggressively conservative and creates multiple threads where WLM2012 would consolidate things properly. I've found a few pages that point to some useful fields in the config editor, but I couldn't find the editor before having to terminate the team viewer session. It seems to be easier on the linux version that I have.

Any help/advice would be much appreciated. I promised my dad a MUCH better experience than WLM2012 and so far he is a bit disappointed, which made me look bad.

kind regards, z

Because of the new FF 79.0 on android, I have decided to change to Chrome, for now only on android and not yet on Linux. However, i have used FF for a veeery long time (since early Windows times), so many bookmarks and passwords are collected there over time. How can I export them so that Chrome can read them? Thanks!

First I should say that e-mail settings are a dark art as far as I am concerned, so if you feel you can help remember you're replying to a a seriously challenged user. I have been using, fighting, Mailbird for a few years now; why did I persevere? Because I am seriously challenged, and it was sort of working, some of the time.

So have just downloaded Thunderbird 58. I like the interface, reminds me of Eudora, to my mind still the best mail server ever. And I have managed to set up Hotmail. I set it up as POP, at least that's what I intended to do for a reason. Now however, when I look at the account settings I don't see anything about POP or IMAP. Is there any way of checking this?

Thanks in advance for any enlightenment.

My windows 10 is forcing me to update windows. If i ignore the warnings. it just kills my unsaved work and restarts my computer. To make it worse. After I start Firefox again is starts to update too. And after the update all my Open tabs and session info is completely killed. The first time it was annoying. be now it is a reason to go back to an other browser. The last time i checked i was still the owner of my laptop. and not Microsoft and not Mozilla!

If this bug is not fixed I uninstall Firefox. I need a browser i can rely on. not just doing what it wants.

I am trying to migrate from WML 2012. I have set up 2 accounts in newly installed Thunderbird and used my existing email client to send a test message from each to the other.

I can see the 2 test emails in TB. They appear in a single unified/global (Local) folder.

I want to be able to see the inbox, sent, junk etc for each account separately. There is lots of help showing how to GET these into a single unified folder but I can't see how to separate them again.

Ultimately I want to be able to see 5 email accounts completely separately but at the moment I can't even get 2 accounts to be separate by default.

It's as if "unified"/"Global" is now the default...and that's not at all what I want.

Can anyone help please?
