I've just got a new Win 11 PC and have followed the method to transfer all the emails in my Local folders to the new PC. TBH I've tried many of the methods without success.

I've copied the folders from the relevant directory on the old Win 10 PC onto a USB. With TB closed on the new PC I've copied the folders from the USB to a new Folder in Local Folders directory.

When I open TB, of the ~7,500 emails I copy, only 282 appear

I've tried this many times now with no luck What am I doing wrong please?

Hi,

Just want to ask, we are doing a backup on our emails in Thunderbird using IMAP settings. We wanted an individual backup of each user and do the manual backup by downloading all emails and zip the Profiles folder.

In every user that we added, we needed to remove each in order to create a new one. Before deleting the said user, there is a check box that says Remove Message Data. We check this checkbox. Just want to clarify that deleting the message data doesn't mean it affects whatever we had in the mail server, right? It is only being deleted in Thunderbird locally right?

Thank you.

I recently did a complete re-installation of Windows 10, then downloaded and installed Thunderbird, but cannot see the data files for Thunderbird. Before re-installation, there was Thunderbird data in the subdirectory C:\users\xxxxx\App Data\Roaming, but now there's no App Data subdirectory.

I want to paste the Thunderbird data into the user subdirectory App Data\Roaming, but there are no subdirectories.

Happy New Year all volunteers, In W10, after crash all my applications, and their setup/data got wiped out. Tbird worked before like charm. Then it was a new installation 2 years ago. I moved mail data from Vista Mail on a Toshiba PC to my then new GP PC, with W10. Now, I have to re-install all the apps, and try to import/collect data. Luckily, my Vista PC is still working, so I can recover things from there. So, in Vista Mail i exported contacts, tried .csv, and .vcf. Csv seemed to work, however the import in Address Book was not functional. The names and e-mail addresses were mixed up. Then, I tried .vcf: with a single contact it works fine, but not with a list of .vcf files. Then, I found the advice to create one .vcf file for all contacts via copy *.vcx merged.vcf. The file got created, and looks fine. The windows contact too can open it, one-by-one. Windows10 Mail can handle it also. But, when I try to import this in TB I got as far as START import. Then, the message "Import failed unexpectedly, more information may be available in the Error Console". I do not see error console, and more hints. I must tell, extracting contacts from GMAIL works too. But, unfortunately I do not have set up gmail so that it saved all contacts upon referencing, so I just have a subset of contacts there... Do you guys have a working solution, or is this a new chart again ? By the way, the TB version is the newest one, a guess it is 102. Cheers, Zoltan

Locking this thread.
Please continue here: [/questions/1403460]
I just updated Firefox to version 109. Every single thing that I liked about Firefox is now GONE. Options are GONE. Customizing the toolbar - GONE. Adding toolbars - GONE!!! It lost my open tabs. It won't show the LastPass icon in the toolbar like it used to, so I have to hunt for it now. All my toolbar settings - GONE!

Mozilla - you really should WARN people BEFORE they update that the update is a major overhaul. Why would you just make yourself another Chrome? If I wanted to use Chrome, I would (and I probably will now), but I prefer Firefox - at least I DID prefer Firefox before this update. I do not understand why you completely RUINED Firefox! This update is horrible and I have now lost a full day at work trying to FIX this clusterf**k of a browser mess that you have made for me! For the life of me I do not understand why you took away the ability for the user to make Firefox more user-friendly. Before, I could choose to customize if I wanted to, or not to customize. Now I have no choice and am stuck with the way YOU want it. Well, I don't like the way you want it! I liked it the way I had it customized! I am so stinking furious with you right now! I will be reverting to the prior version and will then search for a new browser. I am really sick of companies taking away things that make their products better. Congratulations, Firefox - you are now Chrome's Clone.

52.9.0esr is claimed to be the last version for XP. Unfortunately it is not quite true. It is for XP SP2 ONLY. Trying to install on SP3 ends with the message that SP2 is required. IMO the installer is simply too strict on demanding exact version of SP ! https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/52.9.0/system-requirements/

I went through the list of versions (thanks Mozilla that they all are still available!) and found that the last version I can install is... version... 12.0b6. https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/12.0/system-requirements/

And indeed I installed 12.0b6 successfully but I would like to install 52.9.

However, when I click DONE and it starts the process of checking my password, it comes back with the attached error message.

Here we go again, I CANNOT access any of my emails, accounts or calendars.

When I booted my computer Thunderbird automatically "upgraded" my profile (files) but NOT the program and now Thunderbird can't open it.

I'm getting a stupid and uninformative "a newer version of Thunderbird may have made changes to your profile which are no longer compatible with this older version. Use this profile only with that newer version." WHAT VERSION!!!!! WHY WON'T IT TELL ME WHAT VERSION IT THINKS THE DATA HAS BEEN CHANGED TO?????

Because of what was done to me last time (it took me DAYS to re-enter my account information and I never did get my calendar restored!), I was running release 68.3.0 and saying NO to upgrade -- DIDN'T NEED the "upgrade" DIDN'T WANT IT.

I suppose a path of "least resistance" that would get my email working again would be to figure out what version my data is sitting at NOW and then download and install THAT release of Thunderbird.

Anyone know how I can do that?

Or WHAT I CAN DO ABOUT RESTORING MY (&^*( DATA!

THIS IS MADDENING! WHY WHY WHY DOES THIS SOFTWARE DO THIS SORT OF CRAP!!!!!!!!??????? This is the THIRD TIME I've been hosed in the last 2 years!!!!

I am trying to import my address books from Outlook 2010 to my new TB. When I choose "import from outlook', I get a red banner that says "no profile found'. Outlook 2010 is my default email. I tried to import the address book as .cvs file. I could only import the names, not the email addresses, home addresses or phone numbers. Any help would be appreciated. I did notice on a previous posting that others have had this problem. It was stated that the files .pst files should be located here: C:\users\username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook. However, mine a located in my documents/outlook files/ and my email address. I don't know if that matters or not. I hope there is a 'fix'. If I can't get the address books in TB it will be of no use to me. Thank you for your help.
