Solved: Addons are not installed as restart is not recognized

Hello,

I updated to the newest versions of portableapps and thunderbird but the problem is still there.

In Thunderbird i used several addons which worked for long time. After upgrading thunderbird some time ago, new addon-versions were needed. After downloading them, I installed them as usual, but thunderbird did not finish installation, as it does not recognize the restart.

When i look under the addons the message stays the same: Will be installed after restart !

Unfortunately I cannot give any more information about the addon versions nor the thunderbird version where the error started, as the new version is in use now

Hope that anyone can help.

Greetings

Thunderbird Issue

This is a relatively common issue with Thunderbird, more likely in the portable version due to increased likelihood of disconnects, etc.

Something in your profile folder is corrupt. Backup your ThunderbirdPortable\Data\profile folder, then go into it with TB closed and delete extensions.cache, extensions.ini and extensions.rdf files. Then start it again. It should recreate them (though any extensions you disabled will now be re-enabled) and allow all of them to load.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
