Thunderbird Won't Load After Recent Update

#1 Post by grasshopper » Wed Jun 13, 2018 5:42 pm

Can't load Thunderbird, I get the following "icedove" migration errors ,see attached screenshot. This happened after a recent update, everything was working fine until then

Any way to quickly fix this?

Thanks in advance.

Just remove/rename the empty .icedove directory within your home folder, as it might have been a left over from a firejail exercise you made.
