Automatic Backup? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hi,I wonder if you could help me please.I am using your latest version of ImportExportTools to do a daily backup of my whole profile of Thunderbird Portable running in Dropbox across several computers in different places.It is working very well thank you but I can only do the backup manually after Thunderbird is shut down? Is it possible somehow to have it do the backup automatically in the background while Thunderbird is running or even to do the backup automatically when I close Thunderbird?I have looked through the options but can see no way to do this, am I missing something obvious please?Any help would be greatly appreciated.Many thanks,Bob Green, UK.So can I presume from the deafening silence one month on that's it a "No you can't, or you do not intend to add the option even if it is possible?"An answer would be appreciated if possible otherwise what is the point of this page????Regards, Bob Green.

Thank you for the reply it is much appreciated, I did assume it would be rather unlikely to organise. They sound like good ideas if possible, at present I have it set to backup all profile files once a day [24hrs] when the programme exits which is far, far easier than trying to automate MozBackup to do it!
Thank you, Bob Green.

British English Dictionary

How to Fix Dictionary for latest Thunderbird! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

After being overwhelmed by the number of replies I decided to have a go myself, the following "appears" to be a fix!!!!
To get the British English directory to work:
Extract the .xpi file with winrar or winzip etc,
open install.rdf and change all the options of "max version"
to what you are using, [at the moment 12.0.1 for me] and save the file.
Put it back into the archive with win rar etc [copy and replace].
Install dictionary as an add-on by "installing from file" useing the
new .xpi and it seems to install and stay after reboot ok.
Seems to work on the normal and portable version across several pc's!
If you put in say version 20 as the max you might future proof it?
I might try that soon when I'm feeling keen, have a go or get a
friendly geek to do it for you, it's not too difficult.
Which leads me to the question "Why on earth does the owner David Bartlett not do this????".
