Re: Usenet not working

That's an old version of Tbird.

 

Tbird has recently reconverged with Mozilla and is currently release 102.something,

 

This may or may not be related to experienced issues.

Totally the opposite @greygit - the ThunderBird project was initially created by the same group who created Firefox, but although it still uses the some core, it is now a separate project, and the current release is definitely 91.11.xx (depending on the OS you are using) - the M$ release may be a point ahead of the Ubuntu one, as Ubuntu carry out changes to integrate it.

Re: Usenet not working

I am using ThunderBird on Windows and it says I am fully up to date when I ask to update it.

You will be fully up-to-date, @gladman TB default installation procedure puts you on an automatic update profile nowadays, in fact I think that what one of the changes introduced for long-time users back in the Mozilla days.

Re: Usenet not working

Ah, so it is a 'non-upgrade', i.e. direct download and as such, not essential for those on the last point release  version of 91, read the v102 release notes.

Re: Usenet not working

I'd be reasonably sure that the 9*. line is going to be withdrawn in the non-too-distant future. As far as I can ascertain it isn't offered as an immediate upgrade because there are (may be) various add-ons that could be uncompatible.

 

I got it when I flattened a system. There are security fixes (currently unexploited) in the 100 line which may not be implementable in the 90's.

Re: Usenet not working

I wouldn't know about that - If you know anything about the Mozilla program range, you should know that they only offer the latest version on the website, but if for any reason (really old OS/personal choice/w.h.y.) you want to use n older version, they are still available via the '0ld Editions' on their site, or on oldversions.com .

You are correct in that it isn't an immediate update because of add-on compatibility, but the add-on authors will be aware of changes which may render them not  safe/difficult to transfer and will be addressing this.
