Thunderbird 10.0a2 Earlybird Released

On November 11, 2011, Mozilla has pushed Thunderbird 10 on to the Earlybird Developmental channel. Please be aware there are two issues concerning this release that may affect users:

  • The Add-on Comparability Reporter is not working correctly (also applies to Firefox 10 Aurora). Users will need to go into Thunderbird’s about:config (Tools > Options… > Advanced – Config Editor…) and add the following Boolean preference: extensions.checkCompatibility.10.0a and set it to FALSE. Restart Earlybird and your extensions should be enabled again
  • Lightning users need to manually update to Lightning 1.2a2.

Thunderbird 10.0 is scheduled for release on January 31st, 2012.
