I have a Mac G-5 (now a so called 'vintage unit' by good ole Apple) operating OS X Version 10.4.11. I finally succumbed just now to Thunderbird's suggestion to switch to the new 12.0.1 (?) Version and after downloading it, moving it to the Applications folder as instructed and thence to the Icon Bar, it wouldn't open!
During this procedure, the process told me that Thunderbird already existed on my computer and ask if I wanted the old version replaced by the new version. I clicked "Yes". Subsequently I was informed the replacement could not be opened. I pulled the Icon out of the Dock thinking the old Version would still be there. Of course, it wasn't.
Is there a method whereby I can retrieve the original Version? I gather my present operating Version 10.4.11 will not accommodate this new Thunderbird Program. Technology is leaving me in the relm of vintage dust.
My computer won't accept the newer Versions of OS X. I am age 82, limited income & all that and want to stick with what I had.
What can you recommend to sort out this mess? Have I lost my Thunderbird log of emails in the process?
Thank you.[email protected]
PS. Does Thunderbird have a folder system to collect specific emails by sender? or are they all dumped into one master archive folder? I haven't been able to figure this out. Yahoo provides an easy system.
PSS. I have sent several questions to Thunderbird in the past but for some reason, received no response? I must have done something wrong. I found this question form on Safari.
