Thunderbird 8 and previous release regressions fixed in TB 9

  1. Mac OS X ONLY: Can't open new windows if any windows are on a secondary monitor & bottom of secondary is NOT TOP aligned with primary - [bug 644733],[GS] WORKAROUND: align top of secondary with top of bottom monitor - fixed in FF 9,should therefore be fixed in TB 9

  3. Plaintext part not sent for multipart alternatve send option - instead 2 HTML copies are sent - [bug 688991] REGRESSION
  4. Thunderbird 5 always print background colour - Known REGRESSION, see bug 674211 is thunderbird bug GS,[bug 652914 is gecko core bug] - I believe this will land in FF9 and TB9
  5. New entry in address book not saved when Short Date format to: "dddd dd MMM" - [bug 677884] e.g. when using Hebrew calendar instead of Greogrian Calendar - fix landed in TB9, bug present since at least TB5

(in no order, numbered for convenience only)

  1. Thunderbird/Thunderbird8.0SupportIssues Thunderbird 8 Support Issues
  2. the above are great for Thunderbird changes, but open question: how do we track gecko changes that surface themselves to the user in Thunderbird?
