I know a few of you use Thunderbird and the Mozilla group looks almost
dead. So what's up with the newest version? In newsgroups I can't
expand all links using Ctrl* . The old version had a problem doing that
sporadically when set to expand all groups, but now Ctrl* doesn't even
open them up, I have to click on the "+" for each thread. I'd also like
the reply button back were it was.
Anyone else try the latest version? Any problems? Any fixes before I
go back to the old t-bird?
I think this version must have included that forgetter thing like they
are talking about in Men in Black. It zapped my brain through the
monitor. Everything seems to be working just fine, except my brain.
I can't test it until tonight, but I'll let you know.
Here's my issue with the latest version:
When I first let it do it's install, it opened a dialog box allowing
me to configure certain options. I'm pretty sure I remember "options"
When I went to configure the very first option, it downloaded an add-
on, installed it and offered a button to Restart Thunderbird. I click
the button and Thunderbird restarted with no "configuration" dialog
I don't know if that meant there no more options to configure (I
suspect that there were) or that Thunderbird figured I was done
configuring since the "first launch since upgrade" flag had been
I don't know what new features I might be missing or are set at the
I'm not using Thunderbird, but I "upgraded" to Firefox 3.6.8 a few weeks ago
and suddenly, a number of normal, useful features are gone. Previously, I
had version 3.0.x. So, off to the support newsgroup and what do I find? The
usual Mozilla routine that's been going on for years. Remember the movie
"The Matrix", where the guys in black have those devices which make entire
people forget what they just saw? That device actually exists, and every
time a new major version of Firefox is released, the device is used on the
veterans in the support group.
"No, that feature never existed in previous versions."
Right. I used the feature YESTERDAY.
re: "Remember the movie "The Matrix", where the guys in black have
those devices which make entire people forget what they just saw?"
errr...that was "Men In Black".
Jeez...speaking of forgetting... :-)
When Mozilla first swallowed Netscape, the open sauce programmers destroyed
the bookmark search feature. It took almost 3 years for them to (sort of)
fix it. Not a single person in the support groups had any memory of how well
the feature worked before. Amazing.
Sauce in this context: Slang term for booze.
