I have Windows 10, version 1903. I recently backed up my Mozilla Roaming and Local profiles to an external drive before replacing the hard drive in my laptop.

After replacing my hard drive with a new one, I restored an earlier image file of my computer in order to put back all my data onto the new drive.

Then I did a Fresh Start, effectively doing a new install of Windows 10 (v.1903).

(As far as I can tell, my old Firefox data was deleted during the Fresh Start reinstall.)

I now did a new install of Firefox onto my computer. After I opened it I synced. Because my favicons were not restored (a generic globe icon shows in their place instead), I'd like to load in my old saved profile and make that my default profile.

The problem: So I tried copying and pasting the saved profile ("bxfz7tby.default" ) back into the new Mozilla Roaming and Local profiles (e.g, into "C:\Users\,username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\", but I can't get Firefox to access them. Instead, it only accesses the new profile it created.

I did an uninstall and tried it again, but all I ended up doing is creating another new profile. Now when I go to About:Profiles (see image), the default-release and default profiles listed don't seem to exist anymore (they aren't loadable, and they can't be found using the filepath noted there), and the actual backup profiles that I copied from my portable drive into Mozilla and that I actually see in File Explorer, doesn't show up as a profile choice.

How can I restore my old backed up profile? And if I do restore it successfully, will that also restore my missing favicons?

Greetings everyone,

Sorry to be creating a thread about this, but it's a serious question I need help with.

I was just about to install Firefox for my old Android phone. However, before installing Firefox it warns me that it requires access to a bunch of my personal data... :(

Why is this the case?

I currently use Google Chrome on this Android phone.

I'd really appreciate any advice.

Somehow, Thunderbird was updated on my system without my permission. I have now lost everything -- all my archives, all my structures, and the ability to send email from some accounts.

How do I back out of this installation and install a previous version so I can get my content back? One of the messages was my friend's suicide note which I had archived. It is now gone. I am not happy with what Thunderbird has done behind my back. And I have financially supported this effort.

Sorry if topic not quite right.

When backing up Thunderbird - every month or so (for many years) to a separate HDD - always thought that address book was within the -- Roaming - Thunderbird - Folder. Can anyone say please, where to find the address book on the HDD as I now think, to the cost of my wife's PC's faulty HDD, it has to be exported for back up as it appears not(?) to be automatically backed up when backing up Thunderbird. Previously, not sure how long ago, I seem to remember content of emails being shown within the Thunderbird Folder, appears not to be so currently.

My wife is a little upset because my misunderstanding has caused her the loss of her email address list. In future both on mine and her PCs I I think I'll have to create folders header "E Mail Address Backup" - am I wrong?

Thanks in anticipation

Thunderbird 78.1.1

Switching from W7 to W10. W7 configuration: profile is on separate HD - not C:\.

Clean install of W10 on new HD and I had to enter all my email accounts and somehow somehow managed to get tbird to link to existing profile on separate HD so addresses & rules, are 'there'. W10 version working fine.

Thunderbird is about the only thing that works satisfactorily in W10 so I went to dual boot to spend most of my time in W7. On restoring previous W7 OS image [on a separate HD from W10 OS], tbird now demands that I not use old profile w new tbird version. That's the best way I can interpret the message. I'm guessing the OS/image version that says this [from June, '20] doesn't like the profile version that was doing just fine before I started this switch in mid July.

So I've started over and re-entered all the email addresses [as I did on W10 connfiguration] but I've tried 3-4-5 ways to trick Thunderbird into using the old profile which is still the same file on the same separate HD that the W10 Thunderbird is using and I just can't get that to happen.

I exported/imported address books [from W10 to W7] but didn't get the filters. I don't know what else I am missing, but I think all I need is teh dozens of filters I've set up over the years. IT looks like current W7 version of tbird is working fine except no filters.

I see all the same sent/received emails when running tbird from either OS.

How can I get the filters back into W7 Thunderbird? Can/Must I have tbird running or not running? Can/Must I drive things from W10 tbird active and W7 is just anothere data HD? Or drive from W7 tbird active and W10 is just another data disk?

Simplest could be just connect current W7 tbird to same old profile on separate HD. If this is not part of the process, then I will have to do it later anyway but that should be an easier process. Several utubes etc on how to do that. I do not have enough room on C:\ OS HD for email data. That's why the profile is on separate HD.

My goal is to have both W7 & W10 tbirds using the same profile - of course, only one such alive at a time. When one Tbird updates, boot to the other OS and update that tbird. If this absolutely cannot be done, please tell me so.


Many thanks in advance!!

Currently I have Eudora 7.1.0.9 on a Windows 7 computer. I’m getting a new computer with Windows 10. Since Eudora is no longer supported I’m looking to switch to Thunderbird 78 (which I gather is the latest version). Will Thunderbird 78 import all my Eudora 7.1.0.9 files? If it will, am I correct in assuming that I’d need to install Thunderbird 78 on my current Windows 7 computer and import the Eudora files to it? Then how do I transfer the new Thunderbird on my Windows 7 computer to my Windows 10 computer?

Today was about the 3rd or 4th time in the last few months that I boot up the PC and find that the Firefox exe has disappeared. So frustrating. Yes I can and do re-install, but it's 30-45 mins each time. Does anyone know what might be causing this. I am very careful with downloads and use only licensed software. Could it be the VIPRE anti-virus/firewall? Running on Windows 10 - everything is up to date and usually very stable.

they do not match any from https://releases.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/79.0/SHA256SUMS and https://releases.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/79.0/SHA512SUMS

When I downloaded the same installer on Windows via Firefox checksums were different than before (calculated by the same command)

What is strange the signatures of the files are identical. I downloaded installer two more times (with restarting computer in between, why not) and it gave me exact same hashes depending only on what browser i used for downloading them. Is it a known problem when downloading firefox via Edge? Is it known why this happens? Does this problem occur to you? Is Firefox downloaded via Edge safe to install?

On Thunderbird there are a number of Inbox folders? The top one contains my sub-folders, which is how I file emails. But do I have a configuration problem with the several Inbox folders & 2 Sent folders?
