Look in your Thunderbird directory for trp files, look in popuplog.os2 in the root of whatever system you were running at the time of the crash for any entries related to Thunderbird.
You really shouldn't be switching versions all the time. Lightning is compiled for one version and will fail if run from a different version. I'd suggest picking one, preferably the latest and pointing all your Thunderbird program objects at it.
I didn't find any pertinent trp files, and popuplog.os2 didn't have any recent entries.  I edited the config.sys in F: [eCS] to MOZILLA_HOME=J:\HOME, and booted into ArcaOS.  When I executed TB (no crash), a number of messages were loaded, but the Inbox file disappeared, and was replaced by a much smaller INBOX-1 file.  The messages started at about the middle of May.  There was similar behavior for the Sent file.  With this puzzling behavior I'm thinking that perhaps I should delete the accounts in ArcaOS and re-create them.

Operator error!  I should have had 'MOZILLA_HOME=F:\home\default'.  But there is still a problem.  When I execute TB 38.8.0 in ArcaOS, a window pops up with the message 'Checking add-ons for compatibility' then TB comes up, but it crashes after a couple of seconds.  What procedure do I use to get crash data?

For several years I've been using ECS 2.0 for E-mail, word processing, etc.  Thunderbird 31.8.0 is the version used in eCS.  For message storage I use a directory in a partition  different from the OS partition.  This week I installed ArcaOS, and set up my E-mail accounts in Thunderbird 38.8.0.  When I load incoming messages, the existing Inbox is deleted, and the new messages are stored in a file named INBOX-1.  I would like to be able to access my E-mail while using either eCS or AracOS.  Is there a method for allowing this?

That's weird. I've jumped back and forth a lot between eCS 2.1 and ArcaOS (various betas and the GA), though usually with TB38.8 until I built 45 and while I had problems with the summary files being deleted due to changes in available fonts, my inbox and sub-folders have been fine.
I take it you adjusted MOZILLA_HOME in Arcaos to point at your old profile. All I can think of is that there is some kind of corruption in your old inbox. Have you compacted it lately?
There were changes in the way summary files work which broke downgrading but should only force rebuilding the summary file.
Really you should update the Thunderbird you use on eCS or point ArcaOS to your old Thunderbird if you prefer it.
And always back up your profile regularly and especially when updating.
I didn't change MOZILLA_HOME until I read your reply; it now points to the eCS profile.  [MOZILLA_HOME=F:\Home]  Additionally, I've been remiss in compacting the inboxes.  I compacted, again - after reading your reply.  I booted into ArcaOS, and started Thunderbird.  It came up as having no mail accounts.  What I'll do next is do a backup of my E-mail, then initiate accounts in ArcaOS.  Or is there something else that is preferable to get the mail accessible from both eCS and ArcaOS?

I'm not sure this applies, since both versions of TB (31.8.0 and 38.8.0) are newer than the old version mentioned in the readme:  3.1.

I am not sure that the MMRE driver is correct for the 8139C, although it *may* be selected by the installer. The MMRE driver is for gigabit NICs, while the 8139 series is 10/100 Mbs. I am pretty sure that the RTSND driver will work with the 8139C. Use NAPS (System Setup-> Network-> adapters and Protocols), to change the driver.

I will remind people, that MMRE is the new, on going, driver for Realtek Gbs NICs. You should NEVER use the ancient R8168 driver, because it can do some nasty tricks, like disable the NIC, until the machine is totally powered down (pull the plug). Even windows, and Linux, failed to turn it back on, for me. I have one realtek NIC that will do some very strange things with the R8169 driver, but all of the Realtek Gbs NICs, that I have, work with the MMRE driver. Strangely, MMRE does claim to support a couple of 8139 10/100 Mbs chips, but I am not so sure that it actually does (I haven't tried it myself).

It would be interesting to know if the old drivers can be installed in arcaos?

Any driver should work with ArcaOS, if it is designed to work with warp 4. Whether it will work any better than what is supplied with ArcaOS is highly unlikely, but not impossible.

Thanks Doug!  By selecting the realtek8139/8130/810x adapter, instead of the realtek8139C+,  my new installation of ArcaOS has access to the outside world.  (I'm new to os2world, so I don't know how to give a 'thank-you'.)

On the first pass (booting from the DVD), a message stated that the Realtek 8139C+ was loaded; however, on the second pass an error message said that the device MMRE.OS2 was not installed.  The lantran.log file showed "PRO00025:  An error occurred when the program tried to bind TCPIP_NIF to MMRE_NIF."  This is a machine that I've used for several years, running eCS 2.0.  Any helpful hints appreciated.

Regards,
Wes
