Cannot find .thunderbird file - Mint 17 Qiana (solved)

I have searched my file system trying to find the .thunderbird file so that I can transfer my email to a new computer with mint 18 on it. I have enabled hidden files and can see .mozilla but no .thunderbird. Anyone got an answer for me ?

Re: Mint 17 updates not working

That works fine but when I run the updates I get a screen which says it is applying changes, configuring ttf-mscorefonts-installer (which is running) with an end-user agreement for Microsoft software. I have left it running for a long time and nothing much happens - I can't stop it so have to reboot...

When I run the instruction you gave me with the correct syntax I get the following result: deb http://archive.canonical.com/precise partner deb http...

Re: Mint 10 Julia Update has a bug

Don't understand ? I am a very new user and the sources list doesn't mean anything to me. What I meant to say is that the Update Manager in Control Center that gives me the error message is looking for /usr/lib/apt/methods.fttp but the file name if I look at the file system has a file named /usr/lib...

Mint 10 Julia Update has a bug

When I try to update my software packages I get an error message "The method driver /usr/lib/apt/methods/fttp could not be found"
When I looked at the indicated directory I notice that the file name is "ftp" and not the "fttp" that it is looking for.
I can't rename the file either.
Help.......... :?

Re: Thunderbird with Mint 10 works intermittently

After much hair pulling I eventually downloaded Evolution Mail which works like a dream - I could even import my address book and messages from my old Windows Outlook .pst file.

Re: Thunderbird with Mint 10 works intermittently

I still have not got Thunderbird to work with Mint 10 - I cannot ping my pop3 server but I know it works as I have another PC running Windows 7. Does this have something to do with the D-Link router that I connect to before my ADSL line ?
