thunderbird does not start, fails to create profile
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:48:24 EDT
Start with a clean installation. It asks me to create a profile,
because I have none.
Accept the defaults, and you get:
Profile couldn't be created. Probably the chosen folder isn't writable.
[Exception..."Component returned failure code: 0x80004005
[nslToolkitProfileServer.createProfile]" nsresult: "0x800040005
(NS_ERROR_FAILURE)" location: "JS frame ::
chrome://mozapps/content/profile/createProfileWizard.js :: onFinish ::
line 213" data: no
Hmm. what version of thunderbird was this? Can you retry with the
latest thunderbird package? It shouldn't ask you to create a profile
at all, and automatically create it for you.
With 0.8.0-2 it works now.
