Default Re: Thunderbird 52.4.0

I wonder if, apart from en-US, they do it in alphabetical order or in descending order with the language versions having the most users at the top of the list?

As the updates are probably loaded from USA their Monday starts several hours after out time so they start work on Monday in the UK later afternoon.

That makes sense to me. It's the same with Windows Updates, they don't arrive until quite late on Tuesday, maybe not until Wednesday or even later in the week sometimes.

Not sure about that, Madeline, when you look at http://forum.webuser.co.uk/showthread.php?t=149532 and note the varying time/days the Windows update was received by some from the time of their posts - mine included.

However, it does seem odd that if a manual update check is made the update appears to be received before the automatic one from MS?
Somewhat like program updates, e.g. Firefox, Pale Moon, etc., as reported elsewhere on these forums.

Interesting. I suppose it depends partly on the servers, especially when there are a very high number of users, although perhaps there may be delays depending on location too. The main thing is that we get the updates - sooner or later!
