Description Orion Poplawski 2007-05-22 21:30:03 UTC
Started thunderbird 184.108.40.206-1 in an account with an existing mozilla mail configuration. Instead of asking to import settings it opens the new account setup dialog. Reverting to 220.127.116.11-4 works as expected.

Reporter, does it look more like https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=315607 or https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=384615 ?
Comment 3 Orion Poplawski 2007-08-03 18:20:03 UTC
I'm not sure either is the same. 315607 maybe looks closer in that import just doesn't seem to work. 384615 seems to be mostly about import only running the first time, which it just isn't doing here.
Comment 4 Matěj Cepl 2007-08-13 14:18:36 UTC
OK, you are right -- I tried and I was not able to find anything similar. Unfortunately, I am quite sure, we have no capacity to fix this by our own capacities. So, if this issue turns out to still be reproduceable in the latest updates for this Fedora Core release, please file a bug report in the the upstream bugzilla located at http://bugzilla.mozilla.org in the particular component. Once you've filed your bug report to the upstream bugzilla, if you paste the new bug URL here, Red Hat will continue to track the issue in the centralized upstream bug tracker, and will review any bug fixes that become available for consideration in future updates. Setting status to "NEEDINFO", and awaiting upstream bug report URL for tracking. Thanks in advance.

This problem doesn't exist upstream. I downloaded 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 from mozilla.org and both prompted me to import settings. It's only the Fedora versions (up to and including 126.96.36.199 in rawhide) that don't.
Comment 6 Matěj Cepl 2007-12-10 09:22:56 UTC
Fedora Core 6 is no longer supported, could you please reproduce this with the updated version of the currently supported distribution (Fedora 7, 8, or Rawhide)? If this issue turns out to still be reproducible, please let us know in this bug report. If after a month's time we have not heard back from you, we will have to close this bug as CANTFIX. Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting information from the reporter. [This is mass-filed message to all open Fedora Core 6 bugs related to Xorg or Gecko. If you see any other reason, why this bug shouldn't be closed, please, comment on it here.]
Comment 7 Orion Poplawski 2007-12-10 20:18:24 UTC
Confirmed that this problem still exists with thunderbird-188.8.131.52-1.fc8. Again, versions I download from mozilla.org work fine, just the Fedora versions that refuse to migrate settings.
Comment 8 Matěj Cepl 2007-12-11 09:38:55 UTC
Confirming, I can reproduce this with thunderbird-184.108.40.206-1.fc8 and the profile from seamonkey-1.1.7-1.fc8. Just nothing happens, and the wizard for creating of the first blank account is started.
Comment 9 Martin Stransky 2007-12-11 09:46:04 UTC
I think it should be moved upstream...

Comment 12 Matěj Cepl 2008-03-07 22:42:46 UTC
At this point, we're going to only be taking security fixes and major stability fixes into this release of Fedora. However, we still want to ensure the bug is fixed in the next version. We'd appreciate if you could test with the latest version of Thunderbird (220.127.116.11) now available for your distribution and provide feedback as to whether the problem still exists so we can file a ticket upstream as soon as possible.
Comment 13 Orion Poplawski 2008-04-03 22:08:39 UTC
I'm afraid I no longer care about this.
