Known problems and solutions
To open the Help, Release Notes and links from Thunderbird, add a file user.js in your thunderbird profile directory ("(home-directory)/.thunderbird/(profile-directory)") with the following lines:
- user_pref("network.protocol-handler.app.http", "/usr/bin/X11/firefox");
- user_pref("network.protocol-handler.app.https", "/usr/bin/X11/firefox");
- user_pref("network.protocol-handler.app.ftp", "/usr/bin/X11/firefox");
The above lines in user.js use firefox to open links from thunderbird
Some firewall software may silently block Thunderbird from running. Most firewalls will ask you whether to allow a program to connect to the Internet. It's important that you always grant Firefox access. If you deny access, you must go into the firewall's configuration program and re-allow access. Even when disabled, some firewalls deny access.
If Thunderbird 188.8.131.52 is installed on a multi-user system in a location which is not writable by users, Firefox must be run once by a privileged user. If this is not desirable, an empty file must be created in the following directory: /firstname.lastname@example.org/chrome.manifest
Software Update will not work if Thunderbird 184.108.40.206 is installed to a location that you do not have write access to, since Software Update needs to replace or create files in this location.
The default dictionary is English-only. To add a non-English dictionary, read the instructions
When switchng between using a global inbox and using an inbox for POP3 account, be sure to make copies of the messages into another folder.
