Other bugs fixed and changes made :
- FileLink provider WeTransfer to upload large attachments
- Thunderbird now allows the addition of OpenSearch search engines from a local XML file using a minimal user inferface: [+] button to select a file an add, [-] to remove.
- More search engines: Google and DuckDuckGo available by default in some locales
- During account creation, Thunderbird will now detect servers using the Microsoft Exchange protocol. It will offer the installation of a 3rd party add-on (Owl) which supports that protocol.
- Thunderbird now compatible with other WebExtension-based FileLink add-ons like the Dropbox add-on
- New WebExtensions FileLink API to facilitate add-ons
- Fix decoding problems for messages with less common charsets (cp932, cp936)
- New messages in the drafts folder (and other special or virtual folders) will no longer be included in the new messages notification
- 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.
- Address book search and auto-complete slowness introduced in Thunderbird 60.3.2
- Plain text markup with * for bold, / for italics, _ for underline and | for code did not work when the enclosed text contained non-ASCII characters
- While composing a message, a link not removed when link location was removed in the link properties panel
- Encoding problems when exporting address books or messages using the system charset. Messages are now always exported using the UTF-8 encoding
- If the 'Date' header of a message was invalid, Jan 1970 or Dec 1969 was displayed. Now using date from 'Received' header instead.
- Body search/filtering didn't reliably ignore content of tags
- Inappropriate warning 'Thunderbird prevented the site (addons.thunderbird.net) from asking you to install software on your computer' when installing add-ons
- Incorrect display of correspondents column since own email address was not always detected
- Spurious (encoded newline) inserted into drafts and sent email
- Double-clicking on a word in the Write window sometimes launched the Advanced Property Editor or Link Properties dialog
- Fixe Cookie removal
- 'Download rest of message' was not working if global inbox was used
- Fix Encoding problems for users (especially in Poland) when a file was sent via a folder using 'Sent to > Mail recipient' due to a problem in the Thunderbird MAPI interface
- According to RFC 4616 and RFC 5721, passwords containing non-ASCII characters are encoded using UTF-8 which can lead to problems with non-compliant providers, for example office365.com. The SMTP LOGIN and POP3 USER/PASS authentication methods are now using a Latin-1 encoding again to work around this issue
- Fix shutdown crash/hang after entering an empty IMAP password
SolutionUpdate the affected MozillaThunderbird packages.
