installed 52.6, copied my old profile... it is not found

Submitted by marcelzx on March 6, 2018 - 6:57am

installed 52.6 (no profile.ini to be found) on W10
copied my old profile (38.6? W7) to ...Data\profile\sjj2skxb.default

when starting TB portable it sees NOTHING.

...always complicated with those kind of software!

My profile is were it is supposed to be. I can look inside the mail sb-folders and see all my mails...

So, what is next?

making Thunderbird portable the default email client

Submitted by emaharg on March 4, 2018 - 11:30am

i have deleted Thurnderbird from my drive C: and run it from a USB drive with a permanent drive letter (in my case, Q)
Since then, it no longer works as my default email client.

I have tried to reset default protocoll MailTo but I cannot see Thunderbird any longer as an available email client.
Any good ideas to try?

Email Lost.

I was switching PCs and one was "probably" not shut down properly.

When I plugged in my portable drive containing portable apps and clicking on Mozilla Thunderbird, Thunderbird wanted to create a new account as if the old one does not exist.

I can go directly to the ThunderbirdPortable/App/Thunderbird/Thurderbird.exe and get my email this way but not by bringing up the portable app and clicking on Mozilla Thunderbird. It wants to create a new account.

How do I fix this?

Is there a way to protect acess to Mozilla Thunderbird with a password?

Hi, I'm using Mozilla Thunderbird, Portable Edition, and I was wondering if there was an option to block the software with a password so that the content of my e-mail messages does not appear without the correct password. I searched if this option exists in Mozilla Thunderbird, but dindn't find it. Does anyone know a way to protect the software with a password? I prefer open source options or free ones. Thank you.

[Closed] ThunderbirdPortable launcher called with long command line arguments

Windows 10 64bit
ThunderbirdPortable 52.5.0 32bit

If mailto links are assigned to be opened with ThunderbirdPortable, it seems to truncate the command line arguments it sends to thunderbird.exe.
I've tested the same long mailto link, almost 1000 chars long (the raw url encoded version) with predefined body etc, with the same profile in both portable thunderbird and a normal thunderbird installation. In the normal installation (same version 52.5.0 32bit) it works just fine. I've tested the mailto link in Firefox 57, Edge and IE11, all with the same result.
