Seems to work fine :) thanks! Only new thing it did that I had never seen before was a tick box to set thunderbird as default for mail, feeds and something else which I cannot remember.

Working fine here, picking up all mail, extensions and prefs. I like the new security around attached images that I read in the What's new.

Thanks, Mike!

The latest thunderbird-52.5.0 is now available to upgrade to. This one does include a critical security fix.
Security vulnerabilities fixed in Thunderbird 52.5
ANNOUNCED
November 23, 2017
IMPACT
CRITICAL
PRODUCTS
Thunderbird
FIXED IN
Thunderbird 52.5
In general, these flaws cannot be exploited through email in the Thunderbird product because scripting is disabled when reading mail, but are potentially risks in browser or browser-like contexts.

#CVE-2017-7828: Use-after-free of PressShell while restyling layout

REPORTER
Nils
IMPACT
CRITICAL
Description

A use-after-free vulnerability can occur when flushing and resizing layout because the PressShell object has been freed while still in use. This results in a potentially exploitable crash during these operations.

Bug 1406750
Bug 1412252
#CVE-2017-7830: Cross-origin URL information leak through Resource Timing API

REPORTER
Jun Kokatsu
IMPACT
HIGH
Description

The Resource Timing API incorrectly revealed navigations in cross-origin iframes. This is a same-origin policy violation and could allow for data theft of URLs loaded by users.

#CVE-2017-7826: Memory safety bugs fixed in Firefox 57, Firefox ESR 52.5, and Thunderbird 52.5

REPORTER
Mozilla developers and community
IMPACT
CRITICAL
Description

Mozilla developers and community members Christian Holler, David Keeler, Jon Coppeard, Julien Cristau, Jan de Mooij, Jason Kratzer, Philipp, Nicholas Nethercote, Oriol Brufau, André Bargull, Bob Clary, Jet Villegas, Randell Jesup, Tyson Smith, Gary Kwong, and Ryan VanderMeulen reported memory safety bugs present in Firefox 56, Firefox ESR 52.4, and Thunderbird 52.4. Some of these bugs showed evidence of memory corruption and we presume that with enough effort that some of these could be exploited to run arbitrary code.

Thunderbird 52.9.1, rebuilt from the source now in Debian Sid, is now in the main repository. Hopefully this update fixes the attachment data loss bug.
