    • nobody has a clue about what to do with this, leaning toward shipping 38.7.0 with not fix. (wsmwk) agree, ship without fixing it
  • Problems updating to 38.6 to do with Lightning bug 1249894 and its five duplicates. Two users attached their extensions folder.

Round Table

Jorg K


  • mostly working on JSACCOUNT. Have a first working conversion done of existing code, using JaUrl.
  • We really need someone to work on the fund raising issues, specifically:
    • updates to the start page to link to the new donate page
    • modifications to the download page to encourage donation at download.
    • Simon report out, we should discuss the issues and way forward.


  • observing some font selection problems in compose with Jorg bug 1265326 (bug 1265181 done)
  • cleaned up the import from the Becky! email client bug 684455 - who could be able to review that? Neil already did, we just need checking if I fixed his proposals.
  • would like to land something from bug 1174485 but need some testers. It would be a candidate for TB45.x.


  • release 45


  • integrating Enigmail into Thunderbird next steps:
    • Enigmail should be cloned into comm-central; there should be a flag to enable/disable building with Enigmail
    • There should be a new component for Enigmail in Bugzilla
    • we create a bug to start working on updating the build system
  • update on integrating Enigmail with pEp: slowly progressing - first prototype available


  • Enigmail's options should be integrated with those for S/MIME. E.g. If a user checks "Digitally sign this message" under Options, she should then be presented with a choice of certificates if she has both S/MIME and GPG ones. (Or is it possible to use them both simultaneously?)
