New Thunderbird (on Linux) does not convert old .mab address book file

I recently had to re-install Kubuntu 20.04 on a laptop. In the process of setting up Thunderbird, the installation process said it had found address books and asked if I wanted to connect them. Sounded like a time-saver, so I said "Yes." What got connected were several completely irrelevant files, most CSV contacts from my cell phone, but the extensive .mab file from the old version of Thunderbird was not there.

I have found some proposed solutions that tell me to

 >> shut down Thunderbird,
 >> rename the abook.sqlite files in my profile folder,
 >> copy to the old abook.mab file (which I have on a backup disk) into my profile folder, and
 >> restart Thunderbird, which will than automatically convert the old .mab file to the new .sqlite format.

That doesn't work. First problem is, I don't have a "profile" folder. I do have a profile.ini FILE which points to two other folders named (approximately) a1b2c3d4.default and z9y8x7w5-default-release (I've changed the exact names, but the name format is as shown).

Second problem is, my a1b2c3d4.default folder (which, in older versions, was where my abook.mab file was found) had no .sqlite files. My z9y8x7w5-default-release folder has several such files but named abook-4.sqlite, abook-16.sqlite, and abook-17.sqlite. They are all shown as 256 KB. When I added the old abook.mab file to that .default-release folder, it did produce an abook.sqlite file, also shown as 256 KB. But the old abook.mab file's content does not appear when I restart Thunderbird and look at the address books. No abook.sqlite file was created in my a1b2c3d4.default folder.

The references I've found so far appear to be for Windows installations, so I'm hoping someone will have suggestions more suitable to the Linux environment.

In a standard photo gallery.

This means that the image was saved on my computer without a link from the Internet. 
And she will be with me permanently.
Or she's still on the link from online.  And when as it is link be deleted from the Internet.
this images will be deleted by my gallery.  Just opened for see in photo gallery pc.

I'm not exactly sure what this is called. Maybe it's in the cache, but I don't know. One of the fastest timesavers I have is that I use the Firefox url feature that makes suggestions as soon as I start typing a url. I pull up dozens, possibly hundreds of articles that I refer to frequently this way, so that I don't have to bother bookmarking them. I don't clear the cache, to keep these references from disappearing. I have to move computers now. My longtime mac is not working well anymore. Is there any way to bring these url suggestions with me when I migrate? Thank you.

I am a long time Thunderbird user. I am moving to a new PC. I used the procedure that you recommend to move Thunderbird (excellent, easy-to-follow), but it only moved one account.

I had one Verizon.net account with another Verizon.net alias to that account. When Verizon switched their email hosting to AOL (they bought both AOL and Yahoo) the alias became the account and the account became the alias. To Thunderbird, it looks like two different accounts.

After the switch, I continued to store emails in the now-alias account folders. When I restored my 23 GB of emails, the alias account folders did not transfer.

Since I stored some vital information in those folders, I need to either (1) copy the folders to my new PC or (2) keep my 11-year-old PC running. What should I do?

continue in your original thread /questions/1379471

Hi: I've used all previous Windows versions together with 4-6 years of using steadily (and ONLY) THUNDERBIRD Online Email Account but I've NEVER experienced this unexpected issue which has happened just a few days ago: during my daily usage of THUNDERBIRD-Email Account, I've noted one day that the INCOMING messages started to get collected in the 'TRASH' folder instead of in the originally-set 'Inbox' ...and unfortunately - have no clue what has caused this problem. I've thoroughly checked the SERVER settings but did NOT find any wrong data: according to the Email-Account setting it states to store ALL incoming mail in the 'INBOX' folder (as is usually and commonly done) ...

I've checked the Properties of the INBOX & TRASH folders and it is stated there that '....the Folder Index (.msf) file becomes damaged and by using the 'Repair Folder' Option may fix these issues' ...however, I'm afraid to use it NOT knowing if it could complicate rather than fix this problem, however - has anyone a 'good experience' with using this 'Repair Folder' Option in the INBOX & TRASH folders ...?

I've posted this message in the THUNDERBIRD Forum about 3 weeks ago but nobody could offer any effective help and advice how to resolve this rather not very complex issue so - I was wondering if there is ANYONE from the MOZILLA Programmer's development group who should be definitely knowledgeable how to eliminate this Software issue (bug) ...?!? Any help from anyone who is familiar with this issue and could help me to resolve it would be greatly appreciated - THANKS! ...Tony H.

I am moving Thunderbird to a new Windows 11 (64 bit) machine, and downloaded Thunderbird 91.10.0. I used a new profile when I created my two email accounts. But there are several problems: 1) when I exit, Thunderbird doesn't close down completely 2) when I try to look at addons.thunderbird.net or Release Notes from within Thunderbird, the new window never loads (on the other hand, this means that there are no add-ons to confuse the issue) 3) Thunderbird occassionally crashes. I can send you Troubleshooting Information if you need it; it means nothing to me.

The above is the simple version of the problem -- I have been working on this for 2 days, and am no closer to a solution. Any help would be appreciated.

Currently reports as 91.9.1 though the Troubleshooting <show update history> says last update 91.9.0 failed on 5 May. Does not show 91.9.1 as having been installed. 91.8.1 was the reported last success on 20 April. The Help/about Thunderbird reports TB as being 91.9.1 and up to date.

I get a regular message about TB failure to update and to go to website. From this message I use the button to download 91.10.0 exe and then run it to install - from a User account (this is where I run all my programs from) but using my Admin password. After installation TB reports it is 91.10.0. On closure and restart TB reports it is 91.9.1

The Admin account shows TB as 91.10.0 but I have never set TB up in this account because I do not use it in this mode. TB continues to work but I assume I am not getting security updates etc.

Have cleared cache to no effect. It feels like a 'stuck s/w switch' but i do not know where i should look. All assistance welcome.

I have changed from Ubuntu to MX Linux recently and have kept my Thunderbird profile data.

On MX TB 78 is installed.

When I copy the Ubuntu TB profile folder to my new MX install and start Thunderbird I get a message saying that "You have launched an older version of Thunderbird" (which is not the case, I launched versions 78) and that I can either create a new profile or quit the program..... Not very useful.

How can I use/import the data from my previous (Ubuntu) install? It seems likely that I had version 78 on Ubuntu as well, my system was up-to-date, but of course I can't check that anymore.

Thanks

I did find a suggestion to use Thunderbird V31.8.0 to migrate the Outlook Messages & Addresses. This worked; however, then could not find a way to do a clean migration on up to V91.10.01.

Any good solutions (free) that will work?

My HP Omen has 2 hard drives. Originally, Firefox was installed on the C: drive and working perfectly. In order to clear up space, I tried to use the Windows Move feature to move the program from the C: drive to the secondary (and larger) E: drive. Since then, Firefox won't work aside from opening a Firefox window. It will load no pages, settings, etc.

I've tried uninstalling Firefox from both the C: and E: drives. Searched for any remaining files and deleted them. Deleted Old Firefox Data folders. I've reinstalled Firefox, without the option of where to install it, but it still fails to work at all. I get an error message regarding a missing file, VCRUNTIME140_1.dll. I've searched for the file and it's NOT missing. It is in both the Firefox folder and the Windows/Systems32 folder.

I've searched for data in the Users folders that might relate to Firefox but NOTHING seems to work that will allow Firefox to work again. I've tried putting Firefox in Troubleshooting Mode but it won't restart as it says it needs to. It just won't work!

If anyone can just tell me how to COMPLETELY remove Firefox from both hard drives so that I can just do a clean, new Firefox install, that would be preferable. I know how to import bookmarks from Chrome.

If anyone can offer some help for someone who isn't great with computers, I would greatly appreciate it. If you need any other information, please don't hesitate to ask.

My computer is OS X Yosemite version 10.10.5.

I have updated with the newest Firefox web browser today. Now I can't open Firefox because my computer is too old for this new version. Because I have totally replaced my old one with this new, I cannot go back..

And actually, I don't know what is the right version for my computer. I think I found some very long list of old versions(https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/), I don't know which one is right for me and how to install from there - I tried some of them..

If anyone can post the link of right one for my computer and inform me how to install it from there, I'd really appreciate it..

Than you.
