Major Version Upgrades

Migration Assistant

  • {{ Template:tb_min_version_inline("3") }} mailnews.ui.show.migration.on.upgrade
    • Default: true
    • Default Action: Shows the migration assistant when we're upgrading a profile from 3.0 or earlier.

Offline Download / Synchronisation

{{ Template:tb_min_version_inline("3") }}

  • mail.server.default.offline_download
    • Default: true
    • Default Action: Used to determine if newly created folders are set to take part in offline download or not.
    • Notes:
      • This is the default value for all servers/accounts, i.e. when the mail.server.server<n>.offline_download is not set.
  • mail.server.server<n>.offline_download
    • Default: true
    • Default Action: Used to determine if newly created folders are set to take part in offline download or not.
    • Notes:
      • This value is typically not present unless it has been specifically overridden.
      • Overrides mail.server.default.offline_download for server<n>

{{ Template:tb_min_version_inline("3") }} Both preferences now also have the behaviour that if offline_download is true for an account/server, then on upgrade from Thunderbird 2, all existing IMAP folders will be updated to take part in offline download.
