I am running Thunderbird Flatpak from Flathub on Linux Fedora.

I just checked for updates in Software app. I noticed a few, plus system updates so ran them. I remember seeing Thunderbird reported something weird like ‘v128 [arrowright] v115’. I am making that up but I remember two numbers and the left hand one was a higher number than right hand one.

I thought it was odd but carried on, assuming Software updates never go backwards so it must be some weird anomaly. After rebooting, after updates done, I now get an error/warning when I open Thunderbird…

I’m now confused and worried I screwed up my Thunderbird, in which is 20 years of email. Hoping someone can allay my fears and perhaps advise what I should do? thanks

Thunderbird 115.12.1 running on Windows 11 in S mode. Working fine for several months, until today my wife clicked on a particular message, then Thunderbird hung, displaying a tab with "Loading" and the path to the inbox and message, and not responding to any user actions. Killing Thunderbird and restarting results in the same situation. Thunderbird is trying to start up where it was when it was killed. It appears that something in the message causes this problem. I have tried the following:

  • Tried to clear the startup cache, which I am able to access by bringing up the "Write new message" window. However this action starts the main Thunderbird window, which immediately hangs. Also tried starting in Troubleshooting mode, with the same result.
  • I tried to navigate to the Inbox in Explorer, hoping to delete the offending message. But under AppData/Roaming, I saw only two folders (Adobe and Microsoft), but no Thunderbird folder. I made sure to unhide hidden files in the Roaming folder, but it did not help. I also tried this as the user (me) who set up the system and is presumably more privileged but that did not help. I am not knowledgeable enough about Windows 11 security to know how to overcome this. It seems like some kind of super-hiding that only Thunderbird can get through ??

I can try deinstalling and reinstalling Thunderbird but would like to get some thoughts on this before I go that route.

Thanks

As stated, Thunderbird 128.0user Nebula only download around 448 messages from my shaw.ca mail server. The download starts with the earliest messages on the server, thus no current (latest) emails are downloaded to Nebula. I am short about 3.9k messages in this example. I am using pop3 as "I need the independency" on this computer. Earlier versions of Thunderbirds has no problems keeping up to date with all my accounts and their message volumes.

Thx.

Can I see in the profile which version of Thunderbird it can be used under ? You aught to give i clear warning in test versions when you change an user profile.

I updated Thunderbird to 128.0esr. My Trash folder had messages in it prior to the update. These messages now have spurious characters at the end. Copying messages from the Inbox to the Trash folder after the update does not produce this behavior. I don't know whether this occurs with folders other than Trash.

Does Thunderbird 128 have an automated, scheduled backup command option? I am test driving Thunderbird and have seen information online for 115 about copying the profile, etc. Does exactly this process continue for 128? Em client, which seems to me to be the nearest competitor, has a way in settings to set up a routine automatic backup for every three days.

I recently reinstalled Thunderbird in order to change from POP server to IMAP server with ATT.NET. My new install works OK, new messages are received and outgoing mail seems OK. Unfortunately, I set up message folders in the last installation, which appeared in the left hand column under my account name, and are now gone in the new install. I have spent multiple days fumbling with profiles and mail folders trying to restore the appearance and functionality of the message folders on the main page with no resolution. if there is no solution because of the POP vs IMAP nature of the message files, I will resign my self to that and stop torturing my self blindly attempting to fix the problem myself. If there is a prescribed way to recover and access the old messages I would appreciate some guidance on how to make it happen. Thanks Glen Wheeler

I have deleted the files in Thunderbird under sent files, but they still get picked up by Kaspersky. There is no option to delete them in Kaspersky, only to exclude or ignore. I do not want to manually delete all sent files, I cannot see the individual files in windows (win 10) anyway.

Is there a way to fix this. Kaspersky support have tried but no success.
