If Thunderbird is installed on several computers in a network and one of them gets mail with POP and puts it in "Local folders", can the others access the mail folders at the same time without conflict?

After a complete hard drive meltdown, I had to re-install windows (10 Pro) and then TB, which is now a blank slate. I have my old profile stored. But in it, my two primary e-mail accounts were POP3 (alongside a number of IMAP accounts) and I was never sure how to switch them to IMAP without having to change the e-mail addresses. And I always quickly moved e-mails out of the inbox into a series of local folders for storage. So pretty much everything I need to reference is in some kind of local folder. So my question is: 1. Is it possible to selectively import local folders from an old TB profile into my newly-installed TB? OR 2. Should I load my old profile and then try to change the two primary accounts to IMAP and can I/how do I do that while keeping the e-mail address? I currently have the new TB on my desktop and the old TB with my profile on my laptop with the "check for new messages" disabled on all accounts. NB I am 60+ and while relatively computer literate for my age, maybe somebody could ... to quote Tom Hanks ... explain it to me like I'm a 3-year-old :0 TIA for any help, Rebecca

All the posts suggest

 Please see https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/all/

but that just offers the latest version (current 91.9.1) which won't run on El Capitan.

Other posts tell you to look at

 https://www.thunderbird.net/en-US/thunderbird/releases/

but that only gives you the release notes for the older versions, without any download links.

How do you get the older versions?

Many years ago, I had two computers receiving email. Both received a copy of each email.

I am attempting a move from my old Thunderbird (38.5.0 in Windows XP) to a new 98.9.1 in Linux Cinnamon Mint. I sent an email to the mailbox. It was received only by the new Tb. I shut down Tb and restarted it. I sent a second email. It was received only by my old Tb.

The server settings are: Check at startup, Check every 10 minutes, Automatically download, Leave messages on server, Until I delete them."

I can find no option to allow the email to be downloaded by two Linux versions of Thunderbird, though surely that must be routine for those who receive their email both on a computer and phone. I need a POP solution, since I can be away from either version of Tb for some time.

Help, please!

Last year someone asked about 2 Firefox for Android applications; I just had two different copies of Firefox installed on my Win 10 laptop (one in an attempt by Microsoft to upgrade to Win 11) where all my data was in the old app named 'Mozilla Firefox') while the newly installed app was just 'Firefox' and had none of my data. I did not attempt that new install, it seems Microsoft did ?? They also mentioned wanting to redirect the new Firefox to specific Domain Name Service servers, rather than the traditional server addresses provided by the local network. Anyone know what's going on?

I bought a new laptop because the old one died. Now I tried to transfer my TB data into the new computer. I managed to do it BUT... only one of my two MAIN folder data is there.

Last time I needed to do that when my laptop died it worked. Now despite me using the EXACT profile path/name (eg, C:\Users\XXX\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\XXX) in TB's local directory at my new computer only one MAIN folder's data is present.

Does anyone know how to solve this issue?

Thank you!

Hello,

So, my company want to trash their Exchange server for Gmail accounts. Welp, OK... but Thunderbird (last version) doesn't cooperate.

I tried to add a new account with the correct information. I set the IMAP/SMTP of Google as this is an other domain, SSL connection and OAUTH2 on both servers as needed. The Google window appeared, login and password is fine, I clicked on Authorize.

But Thunderbird doesn't want to create the account because of a sudden login/password issue.

The login/password is fine, I tried it on the browser and I did succeed the OAUTH2 process so this is not the issue. The Google account states that Thunderbird is indeed authorized.

Cookies are authorized.

I tried to change the password for something more stupid.

Heck, I even recreated a new profile without changing anything. In desperation, I even tried using the standard password method after activating the Less Secure Application in the Google account.

Thunderbird still refuses to connect to this account, with the same login/password error.

I don't get it.

Does someone have a solution before I shoot this retarded bird ?

Cordialy,

So i have the new Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra, never had a tablet until now. Why is there no tablet mode variant of firefox? I LOVE the use of extensions and it's my primary phone and desktop browser, but all the other browsers, duckduckgo, chrome, samsung internet, brave, and opera have tablet modes with a bookmarks bar, full tabs, and defaults to desktop user-agents most of the time. And even with Firefox being somewhat usable on a tablet, the scaling on it causes a lot of glitches like the address bar doubling over when you go in to type another search/domain while on a website already.

I'm insanely bummed that I can't use my favorite browser that has everything i love on my tablet because they just haven't optimized it in the slightest for the large scale experience.

Hi Team, I love TB and have been using it for a very long time. Until recently I was able to access my profile from both windows 7 and Ubuntu 20.04. The current versions are 91.9 on Ubuntu and 78.4.3 on Windows 7. I have 2 users (my wife and I) and somehow seem to have got into a real mess. My wife is asked all the "new install" account stuff from either windows or ubuntu. For myself I can open my profile successfully (bizarrely) with 91.9 on ubuntu but hit the install issue on windows 7. I have in the past messed around with profiles.ini with some success, but so far I havent been able to massage my configs so that I and my wife can access our old profiles.

I have looked though some of the existing issues but am hoping some kind soul will explain to me: a) can I use latest code to access the same profile b) how to configure the magic, please?

regards, Paul

I have been using Outlook for my email accounts, including Gmail, but would like to install Thunderbird as Gmail soon will no longer work with my version of Outlook. In the Mozilla support article "How to add your Gmail account to Thunderbird", it says that after configuring the account, "Thunderbird will download your existing messages and your Gmail will be ready to use." Will Thunderbird at that stage download every message in Gmail's inbox? My problem is that I have thousands of old messages in Gmail as have never accessed Gmail from my browser but from my email programs (Outlook Express, Win Liive Mail, Outlook) where I store messages in folders and delete whatever is not needed. If Thunderbird is, by default, going to download everything in Gmail, are there any options to limit this by date or any other criteria. Thank you for any help. Scotch
