Thinking about it, this automatic update has happened before. I was using Thunderbird with Kubuntu before moving to MX-14 and it's probable that I just carried on with most
of the contents of the old folder when I moved. Was doing a lot of distro hopping a few years ago and to maintain some continuity I retained as much as possible. The hopping ceased when I was pointed to MX by MikePav.

MX-17.1 64bit. Also MX17, Kubuntu14.04 & Puppy 6.3.

Are things with the extensions sorted out, or?

I upgrade by installing the update and then moving the backed up .thunderbird folder over to my /home/username/ folder, but haven't dared to as I am afraid stuff breaks.
If the extension hasn't been updated to work with "Quantum", no. But we'd need to know what extensions you're talking about.

I just tried the upgrade to 60 on a test install of mx18, worked peachy, even got the calendar to work. Nice.. now.. I installed xul-ext-firetray but I still don't see notifications, nor an icon in the notification area.

The firetray extension was something definitely good to have, but on 60 that doesn't work anymore and the installed xul-ext-firetray package apparently isn't doing it either..

Anyone with ideas?

Firetray works fine here. What version did you install ?

Firetray does not appear at TB first launch. Did you close and re-launch TB ?

Aha... now it works..

What you have to do is remove the non compatible firetray, only then will the newly installed one show. :)

I am temporarily using Ubuntu 18.10 until Debian includes Gnome 3.30. Still using same /home with MX Linux. Ubuntu's thunderbird 60.2 doesn't work, several features are not displayed. I installed 52.9 and locked the package for upgrade.

It would help if you stated which features didn't display. There might be alternatives.

Thanks Eadwine Rose for asking. I have not checked since two months. I just replaced 52.9 with current 60.2 which works fine. It means the earlier 60.x didn't work.... didn't display the email text, etc.
