I have an external harddrive with MX-18 on it. So I booted into that, ran upgrades, then upgraded TB from the Test Repo. No problem, all normal.

The only significant difference I can see between the two is that the external harddrive is using nouveau with Nvidia, while the SSD one onboard (where I have the problems) is using proprietary nvidia driver.

It must be something else that is doing this. Some other conflict.

Sorry Jerry, wish I knew!

What about backing up your .thunderbird folder somewhere, purge thunderbird, re-install thunderbird-65.0 then finally put the guts of the .thunderbird folder you backed up earlier in the in-service .thunderbird folder?

Thanks. I already tried renaming the existing folder ~/.thunderbird_bak, uninstalling TB 54... and instaling the new one. Didn't seem to change anything. Before I do anything else, I'm going to look through those web search hits--a lot of people have reported the same problem. The only real reason I want to upgrade is to I might be able to get back the ability to click links and have the page pop up in my browser.

Jerry
Did you clear out you .cache folder? I have had several odd problems in the past ( I use one .thunderbird folder linked to 18 different distros/variations) and clearing out the thunderbird folder within my .cache folder cleared them up.
