I tried launching from terminal instead of launching from the panel icon, and it launches ok, but with the same problems. The following also showed up when launching from terminal...." thunderbird

Firetray extension does not work anymore. What a pity.
Check the release notes page. I saw somewhere there are directions that appear to allow a user to bypass the default block on some extensions. I can't seem to locate that text right now though. - mike
To bypass the strict block of some extensions: try this - mike

Thanks Mike. That link worked, and rebooting my machine also sorted-out the problem of a blank preferences box. Everything tickety-Boo now :)

Not working properly for me. Empty box for preferences,..
Could you try open a fresh (i.e. additional ) thunderbird-profile, eg. "test-profile",
to check this again.
To create a new or select and existing tb-profile:
Press Alt+F2 and enter
thunderbird -p
Click off "Use the selected profile without asking.." - so you can select when starting tb until test profile deletion.
Thanks

Hi Fehlix. I tried to follow what you said, but trying to launch application finder with thunderbird-p gets the message "Failed to execute child process thunderbird-p (no such file or directory)"

Code: Select all

thunderbird  -p

I can't replicate the previous fault. Everything is working as it should with the test profile, and all the preferences are present in Thunderbird.

Thanks. It's indication that TB internal migartion of the exiting profile is a bit wonky,
or some fo your extensions have made it a bit ill ;=).
Depends certainly how much you have tweaked already.
I would probaly now manual migrate the existing one, e.g adressbok, emails. calendar etc.

Firetray extension issues are solving. Seems to work for me.

EDIT: I spoke too fast. Notification icon disappears when receiving new mail.
