What’s New

  • mitigated

    Thunderbird 60 will migrate security databases (key3.db, cert8.db to key4.db, cert9.db). Thunderbird 60.3.2 and earlier contained a fault that potentially deleted saved passwords and private certificate keys for users using a master password. Version 60.3.3 will prevent the loss of data; affected users who have already upgraded to version 60.3.2 or earlier can restore the deleted key3.db file from backup to complete the migration.

  • fixed

    Address book search and auto-complete slowness introduced in Thunderbird 60.3.2

  • fixed

    Plain text markup with * for bold, / for italics, _ for underline and | for code did not work when the enclosed text contained non-ASCII characters

  • fixed

    While composing a message, a link not removed when link location was removed in the link properties panel

Known Issues

  • unresolved

    Decoding problems for messages with less common charsets (cp932, cp936). This will be fixed in version 60.4.0.

  • unresolved

    CalDav access to some servers not working. Workaround: Set preference network.cookie.same-site.enabled to false.
