Good to know. I'm still interested in how to build the package. I'm still unable to build Thunderbird even with the latest SlackBuild-script from -current.

Update: I think I've found the root of my problems: The Orbit2-package required by google-chrome creates an unintended dependency when compiling Firefox/Seamonkey/Thunderbird.

Nope, thats not it...

If you ever want the latest version and it is not in current, you can always just repack the binary that the Mozilla guys provide. Assuming of course that you don't want/need to get to the root of the problem.

I just noticed that Pat changed the config for Firefox/Seamonkey/Thunderbird in -current to --disable-crashreporter.
