Just updated and am quite unhappy.
This version killed almost all my extensions, especially theme font & size changer.
Now it says not available for this version.

Trying to revert back to 60.9 doesn't work so I had to create new profile and use backup.
Perhaps some way to warn about this before updating.
I've been using Tbird since the very beginning and I'm not going anywhere, but some warnings please. A lot of time wasted.

thanks

We're a independent user community, not associated with Mozilla. Unfortunately too many of the developers don't seem to value keeping things working for the last major version. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.c ... 592407#c47

If you are careful not to use help-> about Thunderbird (it automatically checks for an update) and select "check for updates but let me choose whether to install them" in tools -> options -> advanced -> update you have more control over updating.

See http://kb.mozillazine.org/Go_back_to_an ... hunderbird for how to go back to an older version.

As a workaround for the absence of the TF&SC add-on for 68: viewtopic.php?p=14845366#p14845366
