Hello

I read in the release note ( changed: Native notifications on Linux are now re-enabled ). But at home, the Linux Mint notifications are displayed at the top right. Normally, native TB notifications are displayed at the bottom right. It works fine in version 52.9.1 native notifications are well displayed on the bottom right

Do you see this in Linux?

Thank's

I don't think Native notifications are what you are seeing using version 52.9.1. Do you have clickable links to email's in that notification?

The new native notifications in version 60.6.1 on my Linux Mint 19.1 do show up in the bottom right corner and are not clickable. Could be you have an operating system setting that places the notification in the top right.

If you want the old behavior back change "mail.biff.use_system_alert" to "false" in Edit > Preferences > Advanced > Config Editor.

Version 52.9.1 doesn't use native Linux system notifications, version 60 does use them.

Where it appears on the desktop with your version 60 is dependent on your system settings.

Here is a screenshot of my Linux Mint 19.1 Notifications settings. Check that you have "Show notifications on the bottom side of the screen" enabled.

Excuse me, I did not understand the release note

Solved: reactivate native notification of thunderbird with : mail.biff.use_system_alert set to "false"

reply is here : https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.c ... 482674#c14

Thank you all for assistance.

Greetings
