Mozilla Thunderbird 68.3.0 Released for Linux, Windows, and macOS

Mozilla has released Thunderbird 68.3.0 for all supported desktop platforms, namely Windows, Linux, and macOS.

Thunderbird continues to be one of the preferred email clients on the desktop, despite most platforms already coming with a native mail app. Windows 10, for example, now bundles a modern Mail app, while macOS integrates its very own email client developed by Apple.

But despite these, Mozilla Thunderbird remains a leading email client, and the updates released by the parent company every now and then further polish the experience with it on all platforms.

While the new features that are being added in version updates aren’t necessarily substantial, they do contribute to Thunderbird better responding to the needs of users running modern operating systems.

For example, Mozilla Thunderbird 68.0.3 fully supports the message display toolbar action WebExtension API, which was first introduced in Thunderbird 71. Mozilla explains:

“It is similar to Firefox’s browserAction API and can be combined with the messageDisplay API to determine the currently displayed message. Use toolbar actions to put icons in the mail window toolbar. In addition to its icon, a toolbar action can also have a tooltip, a badge, and a popup.”

More bug fixes

This version also refines the navigation buttons, which are now available in content tabs.

On Windows, the new email icon has changes from in-tray with arrow to envelope, so keep this in mind to make sure that you know when a new email lands.

There are also lots of fixes, including for the toolbar buttons of add-ons in the menubar not showing up after the startup and the scam link confirmation panel not working correctly.
