Thunderbird 78.8 released

Mozilla Thunderbird Icon

The Thunderbird email app is updated to version 78.8. This is a maintenance release that comes with general improvements and 4 security fixes.

Thunderbird is my preferred email client of choice. I use this app on every PC and on every operating system I use. It is stable, contains all the features you need, supports add-ons and also comes with a useful RSS reader. I am using Thunderbird for many years and never felt the need to look for an alternative.

Thunderbird 78 doesn't support classic XUL add-ons any longer, but includes some of their features out-of-the-box. For example, on Windows you can minimize the app to the system tray.

What's new in Thunderbird 78.8

    • ✅Fixed: Send message button sometimes remained enabled when it should be disabled
    • ✅Fixed: Importing an address book from a CSV file always reported an error

  1. I’m not trying to hijack this thread but I can’t get a reply on the support forums.

    For my 98 year-old mother, I have 2 requests for Thunderbird: 1) ALWAYS open in INBASKET and 2) don’t pop-up the update notification.

    I’ve tried ALL the tricks with no results.
