Default Thunderbird 60.0 ~ 06/08/2018

Thunderbird has been updated to v60.0 today, 06/08/2018. Mine claimed it was up to date with v52.9.1, but I downloaded the new version from the link below and installed it:

Download Thunderbird in your language Mozilla

Release Notes:

Thunderbird Release Notes (60.0) Mozilla

I've just noticed this in the Release Notes:
Quote:
Thunderbird version 60 is currently only offered as direct download from thunderbird.net and not as upgrade from Thunderbird version 52 or earlier.

I'm not sure that I like this new version, so I may go back to v52.9.1. I've still got the setup file.

I'm not keen on it ~ I'm back with v52.9.1 for now.

Madeline, I have to say I haven`t noticed much difference with the latest version albeit there are a lot of new items and changes made.
What don`t you like about it?

I'm not quite sure really. Anyway, I've decided to pull myself together and stop being so silly. I've now reinstalled version 60.0.

Good for you. I hope you soon like it.

I have under The Midnight Moon as my theme for Thunderbird (Dark, Default and Light are disabled by me) with Lightning and Manually sort folders as Extensions and Shockwave Flash as a Plugin.
Don`t see the point of more at present.

I would be interested to know what you install so I could have alook at what they do.

Your theme sounds nice Roger. Although I have a few themes already from the previous version, I can't seem to install any new ones. If I try to look for one, the site just opens in a browser, not in Thunderbird.

What I said above isn't entirely accurate as I can get a theme from the first page showing, but if I try to got to page 2, it opens in the browser and doesn't stay in Thunderbird. I must have a setting wrong somewhere, but I don't know where!
