    Make a good backup on another media, and verify it.

    If you only need to keep thunderbird emails and things, you have to
    backup the entire directory "½/.thunderbird/".

    How exactly to do that depends on what media you have available.

    For example, if you use a usb stick formatted as FAT, then first you
    need to archive the directory using something like tar, or a GUI like
    Q7Z, ark, fileroller... If your destination is a Linux filesystem, you
    can use, for instance, rsync (CLI), luckybackup, etc.

    It is your choice, whatever you are more comfortable with. I use the
    offline method.

    Read docs first:

    Online upgrade

    Offline
