Curious little annoying bug in Thunderbird MX-17. Clicking on a link in an email opens it in Firefox (my only browser) ... normal functioning. Then later on in the day when I open Firefox, it asserts that Firefox is NOT my default browser and asks me to make it so ... I say OK ... no dice ... continues happening. So then there's the Preferred Apps in the Control Panel ... everything looks fine. Still the same problem ... always asks to make itself my default browser. So, what to do? Decided to open up "mimeapps.list" ... lo and behold, Thunderbird became the "x-scheme-handler" overwriting entries normally associated with Firefox. So I corrected all those entries with my text editor, logged out, and sure enough things went back to normal ... Firefox didn't ask to become my default browser anymore. Now, whenever I get a URL in an email, I copy the link and paste it into Firefox instead of clicking on it in Thunderbird.

Could someone please verify whether or not this "bug" isn't only happenning to me and, if so, could someone please squash the annoying little termite ... thanks

The thunderbird-60.x series continues to fail to launch correctly on my production machine, leaving a large mostly black window; works fine on my personal laptop. This happened with 60.4 and is happening again with 60.5. Haven't seen any other reports on these here so don't know if it is somehow just this machine.

I have removed it so I can get some work done, but will provide a screen capture and terminal output later. BTW: do you still have 60.2 or 60.3 cached? I would like to see whether they work (can't remember now).

How weird.. been working with 60.4 and 5 without issues.. :(

I wonder what is up.

Does that happen with a clean install? (as in no .thunderbird folder to begin with)

At my fingertips only 52.9 in main but I can look to see if debian has one in their archives tonight and build a 60.3 set for you to try.
I'm using 60.5 and haven't had any issues either on my desktop or laptop.

For me same issue on my production machine: I get the big black square with one corner white. When I launch it in a terminal, I see one zillion repetitions of a single error msg:

Code: Select all

[GFX1-]: Failed to lock new back buffer.
A web search on that msg shows many 2018-19 complaints (mostly Debian), but I haven't investigated them in any depth yet.
