Mozilla Thunderbird 60.5.2 Now Available on Linux, Windows, and macOS

Mozilla has recently released a new update for its Thunderbird email client on all supported platforms, including Windows, Linux, and macOS.

With this new release, Thunderbirdreaches version 60.5.2, and although the bigger changes take place on Windows, all users are recommended to update as soon as possible.

First and foremost, there’s one important refinement for Windows users. The Thunderbird team at Mozilla explains that in the previous builds of the email client, the application could crash when users tried to send an email to a specific recipient.

To reproduce the bug on an older version of Thunderbird, you can just head over to Send To > Mail Recipient, and the application should crash without any error message. Keep in mind that this behavior only happens on Windows, and Linux and macOS clients should work just fine.Two known issuesAdditionally, the new update resolves a bug that was introduced in Thunderbird 60.5.1 and which impacts emails from Outlook. Mozilla explains in the official release notes:

“[The update includes] a fix for S/MIME certification verification when receiving email from Outlook. The issue was introduced in Thunderbird 60.5.1 and has been resolved fully in the new version.”

And last but not least, Thunderbird 60.5.2 comes with UTF-8 support for MAPISendMail on all supported platforms.

The new version includes two known issues, but both have been there since the previous update. One of them breaks down the Twitter chat – a problem caused by the Twitter API changes that took place a few months ago, and the other hits profiles stored on Windows network shares.

As compared to Firefox, Thunderbird doesn’t have a release calendar, as Mozilla says it ships improvements when code is ready and tested. This means we can’t anticipate when new major updates released, and all we know is that improvements are typically shipped one to three weeks after Firefox updates.
