User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; en-US; rv:22.214.171.124) Gecko/20090824 Firefox/3.5.3 Build Identifier: Thunderbird 3 Beta 4 release build This is a BAD bug. I lost 10+ saved search folders. Why would those be deleted? If thunderbird 3 cannot support those saved folders for whatever reason, it should either migrate them or leave them untouched so that i can go back to thunderbird 2 and still keep them. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create Saved Search folders (Mine was at the top level, on inbox). 2. 3. Actual Results: Lost all the saved search folders as soon as i opened/logged into tb 3 beta 4 Expected Results: NEVER delete/corrupt stuff, especially without the users knowledge!!!
TB 3 doesn't have any known problems supporting TB 2 saved searches, and it tries to ignore saved searches it can't parse. Without getting more info about your saved searches, it's hard to make progress here, though I understand if you're reluctant to try to recreate this. The saved searches are stored in a file at the root of your user profile directory, in a file called virtualFolders.dat
mohan, do you find the virtualFolders.dat file? http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_folder_-_Thunderbird
Severity: major → critical
I couldn't reproduce it. I still have the tags, so i created a couple of saved search folders and i can access them between 2 and the beta. I tried a downloaded an older beta version by mistake just before downloading this one. May be i lost the folders when i opened up that one. Sorry for the confusion. You can close this bug.
thanks. please reopen if you encoutner issue again
