Beware Thunderbird update if you don't like version 3


So I installed the latest Thunderbird security update without bothering to check what version it was and found that I had "up"graded from 2 to 3. Despite selecting 'no synchronisation' on all my archived Gmail labels it still started downloading many gigabytes of archived email. In Thunderbird 2 I had just the headers of the archive and that suited me fine.

So a warning about installing the latest updates without checking and a question: Is there a Thunderbird 2 package for slackware 13.1?

I think version 2 is now unsupported: the last release has been in march.
