I need to send an email from my admin account. I have changed the permissions, but get an error message
"Thunderbird is already running,but not responding, to open a new window you must first close the existing Thunderbird process or restart your computer".
Restarting does not work, and I can't find anything that is allowing Thunderbird to startup. I suspect I am missing something obvious here?

Try reinstalling or System restore?

Mozilla works fine in my user account, I just need to access it from my admin account very, very occasionally.

It looks like what I need, but finding out how to do it without destroying my current stuff might be a bit of a maze?? I'll give it a go in the morning when the brain is not so short of oxygen! Thanks for the link.

If you want peace of mind when you're trying to follow those steps, just backup your Thunderbird profile before you start. The steps are here:
