Solved: Thunderbird does not start after update in FC7


I solved an issue I had with Thunderbird not starting thought I would post in case others had same issue.

The directory /usr/lib/thunderbird- needs to have "other" read and execute access turned on. Run the following command as root in terminal:
chmod o+rx /usr/lib/thunderbird-

What the issue was:
On November 16 I updated Thunderbird to using pup,
since then Thunderbird would not start (from menu bar icon, nor from a terminal). When trying to start from terminal no messages were produced.



fc7, fedora, thunderbird
