Hello! I have a problem with my mz thunderbird. I have a pop3 account so I decided to change the protocol on imap. Unfortunetaly When I disable the pop3 account and add a new imap account. Thunderbird after the first reboot of my os removes another account on my mz thunderbird. Any ideas how to fix this issue?

What version of Thunderbird?
Have you confirmed that the profile folder ( http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_folder_-_Thunderbird ) is not set as read only in the OS?
How are you disabling that POP account?
Are you running Ccleaner or any similar system clean up utility?

The version of mz thunderbird is 60.8.0. My OS has the full access to this folder. I disable the account by this set of steps: https://makandracards.com/makandra/875- ... nderbird-3 and I don't use apps like CCleaner etc. I have no idea what the reason is this issue.

Don't disable the POP account by your method, just copy the existing mail to Local Folders, Remove the POP account, and add it as an IMAP account:
