What's with Thunderbird?


Manjaro has updated TB to v. 68.12.0


but the download from the T'bird page is v. 78.4.3


Not concerned, just curious about the discrepancy, anybody know what's up?

It depends on the version:
manjaro stable -> TB v68
manjaro testing -> TB v78

No. Seems like someone merely forgot to update a record with the new version string.

I'm more ticked off ("ticked off" may be too strong... howzabout: irked?) that the v78.4.0 folder menu on the left now includes additional spacing between folders and takes up more vertical space than it used to (I have lots of folders). I'll get used to it but why was that necessary?

I haven't gone to check which Add-ons might now be broken. (Arg! All of 'em. 52,000+ `Send Later' users are going to be, um, more than irked.)

T'bird just updated itself while I was writing an email.
Strange way to update.

Not TB itself, Manjaro did that.
So, do you have some sort of auto-updater running? I'd disable it if I were you.

That's what's puzzling - nothing automatic installed - so I've been wondering how that happened.

Don't know what to look for, though. Clamtk was clear.

Did you install TB via pacman/yay?

if you really wanted to check (for example): http://mirror.inode.at/manjaro/stable/extra/x86_64/, but probably you use a different mirror.
when you started the thread it contained v68, now you can find v78 in it.
