Re: Thunderbird almost unusable after upgrade




Title: signature_jp_2

Hi,


It is a known bug we reported under number 870719. The problem is that this release builds against GTK3 and, in stable releases (including oldstable), it is a problem. The solution we suggest to the maintainer, and known to work), is building against GTK2 as Thunderbird 45 was. We are waiting for maintainers feedbacks, as we really think it is a debian-specific bug. Debian does not have to build against GTK3 and should not, given problems in display.


Regards,

Thunderbird in Cinnamon DE is almost completely useless because
portions of its windows / text / toolbars don't repaint until the
window is resized. Is anyone else seeing this?

Using different desktop themes or logging in as a different user
results in same behavior.

I'm curious to know whether this is being seen in different desktop
environments, too.
Not only that, but not just Thunderbird, Firefox also trashed.

New update today OK.

Never just have one mail client or one browser installed, at least not
in Sid...
Despite a mozilla-flash update this AM, firefox is still DIW, will not 
play a video, not even the commercial in front of it. Using chromium for 
my default browser now.

Do I detect an effort to kill mozilla/firefox?  It has not worked for any 
videos but you-tubes in 6 months. And for the last several weeks, not 
even there, as the debian version has no html5 support according the 
window the video is supposed to play in.

Cheers, Gene Heskett
