Install Thunderbird extension under Linux


I want to install a thunderbird extension and in the manual is written to move the extension into the directory extensions, but it seems to me that this directory is not existing.

Code:
meAtMyComp:~/.thunderbird> find -name extension*
./wk7jesja.default/extensions.sqlite
./wk7jesja.default/extensions.ini
Does somebody know what I am doing wrong ?

Gruß, Andre

andrempunkt,

You need to look in:

~/.thunderbird/<Profile Name>/extensions/



For example:

~/.thunderbird/87dw9lk6.default/extensions/

andrempunkt,

Well, apart from the previously mentioned “extensions” directory/folder, there is nothing else mentioning extensions in my Thunderbird except these 4 items, which are not directories:

extensions.ini
extensions.json
extensions.rdf
extensions.sqlite

The extensions directory/folder appears to be the correct directory, albeit empty at the moment.

Why not backup everything first and then put this particular Thunderbird extension into that directory/folder?

From the following link it would appear that the profile folder's extension directory is the one you are looking for:

https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/...:_Installation

Linux: ~/.thunderbird/<Profile Name>/extensions/
