Thunderbird 102.13.1 update should have included an initial email history backup

Making moves

Past updates of my Thunderbird email software didn't disturb my past emails, so I could continue to access them.  The update to Thunderbird 102.131 appeared to wipe out my past emails.  They could only be downloaded from my email server.  As a result, it appeared I lost most of my email history.  I didn't see an option (or a suggestion) to back up my email history before making the update.  If the history would have been lost, the update procedure should have included a step to backup the email history before proceeding with the update.

Later the same morning, my email history "reappeared", so the problem has been resolved.  (Relief!)
