Thunderbird version 68 or 78?

using yay thunderbird displays a long list of possible Thunderbird versions.

The most visible is version 68.

Wondering about a) upgrading to version 78, b) finding the off-screen item # of version 78,
or c) just staying with version 68

(saw in a another posting mention of thunderbird-bin, that version is listed as out of date)

I’d stick with 68 until 78 is available via the repos.


78 is a major change and will make changes to your profile that can’t be downgraded without possible data loss. i recommend making a copy of your profile folder before trying the upgrade.


upgraded today to 78 (made a b/u of mail cache) – all seems good, so far

I upgraded to 78, its working fine.
