TB Profile no Migrating w/ FJ

Briefly describe your issue below:

When placing my old .thunderbird folder in my home directory it doesn’t read back the old data(for some reason). It sees the accounts but doesn’t read back in the old mail files including my archives for my RSS feeds. I have tried the migration tool but it says it cannot access the folder(which it should it’s the .thunderbird folder) but it wont’ let me select it as the default folder for the profile.
What version of Parrot are you running? (include version (e.g. 4.6), edition(e.g. Home//KDE/OVA, etc.), and architecture (currently we only support amd64)
4.6 Security AMD64
What method did you use to install Parrot? (Debian Standard / Debian GTK / parrot-experimental)
Debian NCurses based installer(whatever you call it here).
Configured to multiboot with other systems? (yes / no)
Yes. I have windows on a seperate nvme m.2 drive so I can deal with the drm from college textbooks/materials in case they dont’ work under wine.
If there are any similar issues or solutions, link to them below:

If there are any error messages or relevant logs, post them below:
There are none that I can find. Thunderbird itself unsanboxed(IE running it from a local folder) works just fine.

have you checked their firejail profiles?

I see nothing in there that would make them not be able to the data. If you can point me to what in the firefjail profile would make it unable to see the Mail/IMAP Mail folders contents I’ll try to change it.

It has specifically showing it’s whitelisting the .thunderbird folder which is where the profiles themselves are.

It can see the accounts, but it cannot(for whatever reason) see the data within the MAIL/IMAP Mail folders. It just starts downloading everything as if it doesn’t have permissions for them.

Even though the files were setup(previously) so that user 1000 has read/write permissions to the profile folder and all contents.

could you paste the output of these

cd ~/.thunderbird
ls -lha

And

cat profile.ini
cd YOUR-PROFILE.default
ls -lha

ls -lha

hmm it’s quite odd.
Have you tried moving Firejail’s symlink and then using thunderbird?
e.g.

sudo mv -t ~/Desktop /usr/local/bin/thunderbird 
thunderbird

(To move it back)

sudo mv -t /usr/local/bin/ ~/Desktop/thunderbird 

If those don’t work then I think the issue is Thunderbird.
Have you checked thunderbird’s help resources?

Moving the symlink causes it to work AOK. NO idea what’s going on here. But I’m going to use that hack as it works now and perfectly fine. I ran it like thus.

┌─[macarthur@evoc-laptop]─[~]
└──╼ $/usr/bin/thunderbird &
[1] 4332

and as you see it does start via that command. It’s working just fine. Don’t know if it’s an issue with the debian build of thunderbird or something but it’s back to working and that’s enough for me at this moment. Unless you know what type of but to submit to the debian package maintainer as I know that debian previously built icefox/icedove instead of firefox/thunderbird due to a branding dispute. I don’t know if other modifications that were made back then have remained in their patch file.

Weird. Should be able to run thunderbird after moving the symlink with just

thunderbird

That might be it.

Now I’m having gimp act weird all of a sudden. I don’t know what the hell is going on with it. I’ve tried completely removing GIMP and then reinstalling GIMP and it hasn’t helped, I even reinstalled firejail(in case something weird’s going on). EOM works just fine and casually glancing the debug logs I don’t see any different between the two. It works just fine if I run it with sudo but that doesn’t explain why it’s not working now all of a sudden when it worked literally 5min prior when I was editing a pdf file.

Here’s the simple output from running gimp from the terminal.
