All messages in an IMAP account disappeared and replacement of Inbox with a registered earlier version does not work

A week ago, all of my emails saved on the My Yahoo IMAP account Inbox disappeared from Thunderbird on my MacBook and also from the server. Two other folders in the account to which I had previously transferred emails remain intact.

I tried replacing INBOX-1, INBOX-1.msf and INBOX.msf in the folder (Library>Thunderbird>Profiles>n2j0cgku.default>ImapMail>>INBOX&c.)

-with older backup versions (about 12 MB of emails) but on restart Thunderbird, none of them appeared in the account, and when I looked at INBOX-1 once again, he had emptied and contained only a few bytes.

Does anyone have a work around to make Thunderbird accept the old Inbox? Thank you!

You can try this add and see if he can recover messages you protect in your local folders. If bring you it to a local folder, you may be able to retrieve them from the server.

I have not used, but it is often referred to here in the forums.

    Follow these steps to try to solve your problems of boot.



    Restore point:

    Try typing F8 at startup and in the list of Boot selections, select Mode safe using ARROW top to go there > and then press ENTER.

    Try a restore of the system once, to choose a Restore Point prior to your problem...

    Click Start > programs > Accessories > system tools > system restore > choose another time > next > etc.



    If restore work not and you do not have a Vista DVD from Microsoft, do a repair disc to do a Startup Repair:

    Download the ISO on the link provided and make a record of repair time it starts.

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu.

    When you have changed that, insert the Bootable disk you did in the drive and reboot.

    Link above shows what the process looks like and a manual, it load the repair options.

    NeoSmart containing the content of the Windows Vista DVD 'Recovery Centre', as we refer to him. It cannot be used to install or reinstall Windows Vista, and is just a Windows PE interface to recovering your PC. Technically, we could re-create this installation with downloadable media media freely from Microsoft (namely the Microsoft WAIK, several gigabyte download); but it is pretty darn decent of Microsoft to present Windows users who might not be able to create such a thing on their own.

    Read all the info on the website on how to create and use:

    ISO Burner:

    It's a very good Vista startup repair disk.

    You can do a system restart tool, system, etc it restore.

    It is NOT a disc of resettlement.

    And the 32-bit is what normally comes on a computer, unless 64-bit.


    Data recovery:

    1. slave of your hard drive in another computer and read/save your data out there.

    2. put your Hard drive in a USB hard drive case, plug it into another computer and read/save from there.

    3 Alternatively, use Knoppix Live CD to recover data:


    Download/save the file Knoppix Live CD ISO above.


    Download the Vista software from the link above.

    After installing above ISO burning software, right click on the Knoppix ISO file > copy the Image to a CD.

    Knoppix is not installed on your PC; use only the resources of your PC, RAM, graphics etc.

    Change the boot order in YOUR computer/laptop to the CD/DVD Drive 1st in the boot order.

    Plug a Flash Drive/Memory Stick, BOOT with the Live CD, and you should be able to read the hard drive.

    When the desktop loads, you will see at least two drive hard icons on the desktop (one for your hard drive) and one for the USB key.

    Click on the icons of hard drive to open and to understand which drive is which.

    Click the icon for the USB drive and click on "Actions > Change the read/write mode" so you can write to disk (it is read-only by default for security reasons).

    Now to find the files you want to back up, just drag and drop them on the USB. When you're done, shut down the system and remove the USB key.

    See you soon.

  • Master page with rollover menu, using States, does not work for all pages?


    I created my masterpage with a basic at the top menu. It has two States. The 1st State is normal and State 2 is a simple rollover behavior, just a different color.

    Why my menu would work perfectly on the page ' 01', but then the reversal function does not work for other pages? (portfolio 03 etc.). She has just the hoverover slider and the link, but the color does not change.

    I have something wrong?

    Thanks a lot for all the help on these forums

    Make sure that all the subpages have a second State added to them. You

    do not put any content on this State, but it must be present

    the transfer of work from the watch page.

    If you do not already have that second State, trying to link then cancelled

    the subpages of the master page. I came across this scenario recently

    because I had created a master page after some of my subpages have been

    already built.

  • When a link to open another application and firefox is closed, Firefox opens but the link does not work

    I use Firefox on Mac OS 10.9.2, 29, this problem has occurred on the OS 10.8 ~ and various other versions of FF. I use 29 simply because I like it!

    The problem: Firefox is configured as the default browser in all directions it is possible to set as the default value. However, when I click on a URL from any application and Firefox is closed, Firefox opens opens, my last session of navigation tabs start, but the link does not open. I must return to the application and click the link again. This only happens on Firefox. I can put any other default browser and it will open the link in a closed state.

    This is happening to me, same, on Mac OS X 10.6.8 but only since I've upgraded to the latest version of Firefox, 32.0.1. I can click on a HTTP link in another application and Firefox becomes the active application, but it will not load a new tab for the link, as expected. Instead, it just sits there. I have to go back to the other application and click on the link a second time, during which point Firefox correctly open a new tab and load the destination URL.

  • Updated version does not work on my Mac (10.5.8). Message says not supported on this architecture. How to bring back version 7.

    I got the Firefox version just before the new 8. The icon of the new version has a circle with a cross bar. The application does not open. I want back my old version. How?

    From Firefox 4, Mac must have an Intel x 86 processor; your system is Mac PPC.

    The good news is that Firefox 3.6.24 supports still the PPC Mac architecture. The bad news is that the support for Firefox 3.6.x series is likely to end in the first quarter of 2012.
