Package request: firetray extension

#1

Post by zorzi » Sat Sep 22, 2018 2:51 am

Hello,

As you might know, a newer firetray extension version xul-ext-firetray (0.6.1+dfsg-1.1) has been pushed in Debian sid. Older xul-ext-firetray (0.6.1+dfsg-1) does not work anymore with Thunderbird 60.

Maybe this newest firetray could be pushed in MX repos and get updated in the future ? What do you think about it ?

Thanks.

The Debian changelog claims it has a fix for Thunderbird 60:

Code: Select all

firetray (0.6.1+dfsg-1.1) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Non-maintainer upload.
  * Fix for Thunderbird 60 (by Fritjof Toelstede, Gabriele, and me).
    Closes: #906852, #895451.
  * Firefox and Iceweasel are no longer supported.
