Thunderbird freezes when I reply

I moved to a new PC and installed 64-bit Thunderbird (had 32-bit on old PC). I restored my profile folder from backup and Inbox shows my email and settings look okay. But if I try to reply to a message, TB freezes. It opens the new message dialog, but the TO is left empty and everything is unresponsive with spinning icon. All I can do is close the program.

Chosen solution

I think my problem was that I had not installed the Quick Text plugin on the new computer yet. I installed it and then copied over my profile folder and it seems to be working now.

I can't write a new message either. When I try to input the TO field, program freezes up.

As a test, I did a new install and setup my email account without copying over the old Profile folder and everything works fine, but it doesn't have my old email stored in local folder or contacts and old settings. How can I recover everything?
