Hello, I am new to Thunderbird and have just installed it in my Win 10 desktop and laptop computers. Emails are downloading simultaneously into both computers but the contacts list aka address book is not synchronized. How can I synchronize the Address Book on both my Win 10 computers?

Thanks very much,

Ken Hanson

This is what I think:

The release notes reiterate that the version is only available as a direct download. One can only assume that if 102.1.0, for example, is already installed, that there must be some preferred procedure for using the download to update the existing installation.

Unfortunately there is no mention of any such procedure. There is no README. There is no INSTALL file. There is an executable called updater but running it yields:

Usage: updater patch-dir install-dir apply-to-dir [wait-pid [callback-working-dir callback-path args...]]

which is far from explanatory.

Since these updates are obviously generated by some sort of build script, it would seem to be a simple matter to add or clarify the update procedure. Once done, the work would not need to be repeated.

I would urge the developers to remember that not everyone who uses Thunderbird is a mozilla developer. The users lack many of the skills and background that are second nature to the developers. Without a bit more clarity, the average user cannot benefit from all the developer's hard work unless they can actually install the updates.

Thank you

I really need help... all my work is delayed until I can get this fixed.... I tried restoring just 'Profiles' to TB from Carbonite. Didn't work. So on another computer I did a full restore. I still don't have the TB files in and haven't been able to get them in despite several tries based off Carbonite's advice and google searches.


p.s. I am on a PC and went here: C:\Users\<Windows user name>\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\<Profile name>\

When you get to Profiles, there is one line of code. Do I put the files there, or click into Profiles and put files there? I'm not sure how I would do that 2nd option.

For the first option, should I delete that one line first? I think the new information is a different one line code.

If that makes sense.

I just got a new computer. I've imported my address books, but autocomplete does not function, and a search of the address book returns nothing. It's as if Thunderbird thinks the address book is empty. I've tried importing in different file types, with no difference. Everything was imported to Personal Address Book, and that is selected in Settings. I'm using Ver 102.1.0. I have no add-ons. I've tried in Safe Mode, and it still doesn't work.

Messages not being deleted from POP3 server

My wife has accumulated over 40,000 messages in one of her Earthlink email accounts over ten years or so, filling her allotted server space. I downloaded Thunderbird v.102.1.1 to her computer and configured it to use POP3 with "leave messages on server" checked and "For at most" checked and set to 365 days, with "Until I delete them" left unchecked. I downloaded all the messages, expecting most of them to be deleted from the server, but none were. The server is still full. Compacting the Thunderbird inbox doesn't help, nor do repeated clicks on "Get Messages."

It would be nice if the ambiguous wording of the server settings were clarified. I have these questions:

1. Does "For at most" for a POP3 account mean that today's date is being compared with the creation date of the message or to the date on which it was first downloaded to Thunderbird? If the latter, how can I make it behave like the former? My wife can't wait a year to delete messages from her server inbox, but she doesn't want to lose the recent messages there because she is used to using Webmail to access them. Earthlink only allows 50 messages to be deleted at a time, so it would be tedious to use Webmail to delete the downloaded messages there hundreds of times.

2. Does "Until I delete them" for a POP3 account mean delete them directly from the server using Webmail, delete them from the Thunderbird inbox, move them to a local folder in Thunderbird, and/or something else this might mean? If the "For at most" box is checked, does "Until" mean "Unless I delete them first"?

3. Any suggestions of how I can trigger Thunderbird to send its DELE messages to the server would be appreciated. Perhaps I'm missing something.

Thanks.

Just got a new Windows 11 Home laptop. My account is an Administrator and my wife is a normal user. I downloaded and installed Thunderbird, and can add email accounts without a problem.

If my wife logs in and runs Thunderbird, when she tries to add an account, an error is shown - something like "Error creating account". The credentials are correct, and the same happens whether I try STARTTLS or SSL/TLS.

As a temporary measure, I made my wife an Administrator - after this she can add email accounts. If I make her a normal user again, as far as I can tell, she can still access the email accounts created above. This doesn't seem a great solution, though, as she may need to add other accounts in future and I'm worried there may be other subtle issues that I haven't spotted yet.

Has anyone else seen similar issues? Is there a way I could uninstall Thunderbird and reinstall with different settings, so we don't see this issue?

Cheers.

I've always used the header only option on each of my 3 pc's. If I want to download the body I just click on the message in the preview pane telling me the header only has been downloaded and the body of the email opens. Except now the body no longer downloads on just 1 of the pc's; the other 2 still work ok. Nothing happens if I click the message.

If I remove the 'download header only' option the body of any new messages downloads just fine but not the ones that have previously arrived

All 3 are running 102.1.1

I've reinstalled Thunderbird, restarted the pc and even removed the Thunderbird folders in Local and Roaming in the hidden AppData folders. before reinstalling without any effect. Any Idea what's wrong? Thanks.

I have tried for several days to download Firefox to my new Lenovo 64 bit windows 11 laptop with no success. I get a message Install not completed because VCRuntime 140.dll can't be found.

I have tried installing both 32 and 64 bit direct to the correct folders but Firefox still can't find them.

Also when uninstalling Firefox it does not complete unless I reboot first, when doing so it shows Firefox as preventing the reboot unless I ignore it.

Any help greatly appreciated.

I'd like to import my Seamonkey profile data to Firefox, but Firefox doesn't recognize Seamonkey or its data. How can I do this? I'd like to keep my Firefox data synced to Seamonkey, and maybe synced the other way too. And I'd like Thunderbird to be able to sync to the Seamonkey email data too, for what it's worth. I thought the importing of data when Firefox starts would take care of importing SM data but it doesn't. Are there any commandline options for running Firefox that would get the importing done? I sure don't want to mess around with a huge html bookmarks file and there's other data in Seamonkey besides bookmarks that should be imported too. Help!
