Here's what I did: - Copied the <Thunderbird/Profiles> folder - Uninstalled Thunderbird 60 - Installed Thunderbird 68 - Copied <Profiles> folder into new copy of Thunderbird - There was no Address Book, completely blank.

How do I get my Address Book back?

I have an Aug copy of <Profiles> that might have the Address Book in it but it will not have all E-mails. What files, exactly, would I need to copy from the Aug Profile to the new copy of Thunderbird to get my Address Book back (if that is possible)?

Any and all help is appreciated. I REALLY do not want to reconstruct my Address Book, it have 700+ addresses...

There really needs to be a "revert to my previous version" button. This sucks; I'm going to have to do a lot of work to get it working again.

I cannot read the INBOX index because the font in the application windows is miniscule. A capital letter is 2mm high on my 17" screen. No human being can read lettering this small !!!

The addon list under Extensions does not indicate that any have been disabled. I think that I need "No Small Text" and "Theme Font & Size Changer" to become operational.

OR it might be that long ago I changed something in about:config but I'm not a programmer; I don't remember this stuff.

How do I revert to 52.1.1.1 (64 bit, I think) ???

Hello

I updated from version 60.? to 68.2 tonight and 11 out of my 13 add ons no longer work (legacies)

I've said it before but TB updates are getting to be as problematic as Window updates.

Don't the idiot developers understand why this is not acceptable? I can barely use Thunderbird tonight.

TB may be free but I make voluntary contributions to Mozilla but not for this shit.

Continue like this and very few people will bother to write add-ons for TB and very few people will bother to install them either.

TB say that updates have improvements but it's one step forward and 11 steps back tonight for me.

Can a volunteer answer this please and pass it on to development?

Thanks

created new accounts but sub-folders different, missing, new, & new icons(?)

For many years I have had 2 Accounts in Tbird. They are POP. I just created two new accounts, and am confused by some differences in appearance. These are IMAP. Do IMAP accounts populate the sub-folders based on a structure present in the IMAP provider?

1) there is a new sub folder "All Mail"

2) No Junk folder. There is a Spam folder. Did some idiot change the name in an update to Tbird, just to fark with long time users? If so they did a poor job, since the Account Settings still has a tab for "JUNK Settings" and the toggle asks where to move the JUNK. Creating synonyms is bad practice, because nobody knows if they are in fact synonyms. One would presume they are not.

3) In the index listing of accounts, each account has an icon to its left -- concentric circles with a padlock. And I have not noticed that icon before, I'm wondering if my old accounts suddenly have a different icon (which strangely matches the new accounts' icons). The sub-folders all have unique icons for each type (Inbox, Sent, etc)

In choosing where to place sent mail, there are two toggle choices to Place A Copy In: 1) "Sent" folder on { [circle&lock icon] ACCOUNT_NAME 2) "Other { [SentFolderIcon] Sent on ACCOUNT_NAME I don't grasp the difference. Would 1) keep the messages on the remote IMAP system? I notice that my old POP accounts are using option 1) & mail is kept locally.

3) The new accounts have "greyed out" italicized subfolders "Folders" and "Labels." Are these associated with being IMAP, or did some Tbird update add them? What are they for?

Have spent HRS searching your site and others for help!!! Trying to import contacts from WIndows Live Mail. All instructions I've tried to follow are WRONG INFO!!! It's disappointing that TB can't import contacts DIRECTLY from WLM's contact.edb file, but I've gone into WLM and exported the contacts into VCF form as recommended by TB. However, the directions then say to go to Thunderbird Address Book and go to Tools > MoreFunctionsForAddressBook > Actions for Contacts > Import vCard / VCF. NO SUCH OPTION EXISTS!!!! I've downloaded the latest version of TB, and under tools there is ONLY Address Book, IMPORT, EXPORT and OPTIONS. I've gone to import, and walked thru the steps, choosing to import VCF, then chose the folder location, but it opens the location folder showing ALL INDIVIDUAL CONTACTS, and there is NO WAY TO CHOOSE ALL, I can only click on ONE AT A TIME!!! ???? However, even when doing that, it places that contact in the address book list AS A NEW LIST/ADDRESS BOOK!!! There is NO WAY to force that vcf file to into the default existing "ADDRESS BOOK" there, I have gone in circles a hundred times, trying different things, but same result everytime. Then everytime I search for help on this issue, I come across different directions. SOME places say TB cannot directly import MESSAGES from WLM either, and those must be exported (DUMB in the case of a computer that is unable to boot and/or open WLM). Other places say TB CAN INDEED import messages directly from WLM's storage folders!!! Some places said press CTRL-A to select all vcf files in the export folder - NOPE!!! Still doesn't work. HOW DO I IMPORT CONTACTS???????

I am trying to get my contacts from Windows 10 Mail , to Thunderbird , first off , i cant find the contacts in Windows 10 mail ( i can't find the actual CSV file/folder/location , second , if this is a common issue why doesn't Thunderbird make it easier to transfer contacts , just like all the other email programs do ??? , i am confused as to why its such a pain , i am also not impressed with the speed Thunderbird has in actually sending emails , Widows 10 Mail is 10 times faster at actually sending the mail.... , the only reason i was going to switch to Thunderbird was so i can send more than 1 picture at a time in a email , which Windows 10 Mail has a problem doing and its taking forever for support to help , but if i can't easily get my contacts transferred , i am back to square 1 ,

I need a step by step in getting my contacts saved/found in Win 10 Mail , and get them into Thunderbird ... any help that actually explains the entire process is needed , as some of the links i have seen in other posts just say to save the file , but it does not tell you where the file is and where to save it (some said something about Office ???) , it makes no sense why this has to be so complicated , all i should have to do is go to "Import Contacts , choose the email program they are in , select it , and import it , that is how every other email program does it , if this can't be done without spending hours trying to hunt down the info , maybe it was a bad idea thinking this is a good email program , so far , i am not impressed , if it gets better then fine , but if it continues like this , its getting un-installed and was a waste of my time

Even with Google searches, I have found *nothing* that simply allows me to do a weekly backup of my Thunderbird e-mail to an external hard drive, like I have done with Eudora for MORE THAN 20 YEARS (74 *gig* of space, 5800+ *mailboxes*).

Per my question, I bought a new Windows 10 (Dell Inspiron) computer. Since my Qualcomm Eudora e-mail software would not work on Windows 10, I WAS FORCED to try Thunderbird.

I mistakenly thought it was a straightforward e-mail set-up for my primary/critical Gmail account. WRONG!!!!!

Apparently, the default settings for a brand new use with an existing e-mail account DELETES ALL THE E_MAIL FROM THE WEBSERVER.

CATASTROPHICALLY WORSE, Thunderbird apparently DID NOT DOWNLOAD/SAVE ON MY HARD DRIVE *ANY* OF THE TNES OF THOUSANDS OF E-MAILS IT DELETED, many of which were CRITICAL LEGAL E-MAILS (e.g., FOIA REQUESTS, AS WELL AS E-MAILS AS LEGAL EVIDENCE IN A FEDERAL LAWSUIT).

It appears that Thunderbird worked dramatically different for my numerous Gmail addresses, several Yahoo addresses.

All of the Yahoo addresses STILL HAVE ALL THE E-MAILS IN WEBMAIL.

SINCE I *HAVE* BEEN ABLE TO GET EUDORA WORKING ON WINDOWS 10 (via http://ian.tresman.co.uk/how-run-eudora-v7-windows-10.htm), I was able to routinely check all of my Gmail/Yahoo e-mail accounts "as usual".

ALL GMAIL E-MAILS FROM DECEMBER 8 - DECEMBER 21, 2015 are no longer in Gmail webmail.

THAT MEANS THAT MY DOWNLOADED THUNDERBIRD G-MAIL ACCOUNTS ARE ONLY IN THUNDERBIRD.

SINCE I HAVE A DEADLINE TO RETURN THE WINDOWS 10 COMPUTER, MUST I "FORWARD" THOUSANDS OF MY E-MAIL SUBSCRIPTIONS (I HAVE ALREADYFORWARDED THE 60+ LEGAL E-MAILS) BEFORE I DELETE THUNDERBIRD FROM THAT WINDOWS 10 COMPUTER

Well, I deleted and started the process of reloading loading TB. I deleted pkcs11.txt from my Windows default directory. I went to /home/me/.thunderbird and renamed the 'new .default' created by the reload. After this I copied the Windows default directory and renamed it 'new.default'. I now have my entire Windows TB folder structure. The first time launching TB and requesting my emails, it asks for the pop password. If I leave the option for saving the password unchecked, it doesn't ask for passwords again until I restart TB. Same procedure when I try to send the first email. Better than a pop login after each email request but still an issue.

Still looking for a fix...thanks

The C: drive on my computer failed suddenly and I had to recover the system from a backup that was several months old. I did a LOT of work on Thunderbird since that last backup, and I want to transfer the messages that were updated to my new C: drive. Is there a way I can copy the files with the messages from my bad hard drive to Thunderbird on the new drive so I can compare the folders? The bad disk shows so many read errors that I don't want to simply move the files from the bad disk into my new disk. I want to copy only the messages that are new since that last backup.

Is there a way to rename all of the files from the ....default\Mail\Local Folders\ from the bad disk so I can copy them onto the new drive without replacing any files on the new drive?

I have the same problem with the entries in my address books, except that I don't know of any way to view two versions of the Thunderbird address books and copy contacts from one to the other. Is there a way to copy just the updated contact to the new disk?

Can I get a list of add-ons installed on Thunderbird from the bad disk? Can I just copy the .xpi files that are different in the ....default\extensions\ directories to install them on the new drive?

Thanks very much for your help! Lloyd
