Lost Thunderbird password

I transferred my Thunderbird account to a new computer and it now requires a password. I cannot seem to give it the one it wants and there is no reminder system. Any advice please?

The password is the one that you use to signing to your ISP

If you still have access to the old computer then just back up the Thunderbird Profile to a flashdrive and transfer it to the new computer, the Profile folder contains all your account information and setups including the passwords.

This gives the procedure:

Or you could download then run SIW click here
then look in Secrets in the left-hand column - if the password is on that pc it will be shown.
