I made the grave mistake of upgrading Thunderbird to 78 without a backup of ~/.thunderbird...

Platform is netbsd-9 (amd64) with pkgsrc X11. The machine completed a pkg_rolling-replace today.

The newly installed mail/thunderbird converted my profile, but is unable to render half of its UI - no mailboxes.

A newly built mail/thunderbird68 refuses to deal with the converted profile, but does not respond to a click on "new profile".

Playing with 'thunderbird{,68} --ProfileManager' does not make a difference.

In the end, I deleted thunderbird{,68}, and re-installed the old thunderbird 68.10 from a binary package. Of course, I had to re-create accounts, but, with this version, at least I could.

Do the updated Thunderbirds work for anybody?

It's been working fine for me after the update... netbsd-9 (amd64) with base X11. I note that the icons changed, as did some of the colors used (e.g. when replying to email). At one point I think it also decided to re-download all the mail in all folders, which was somewhat less than amusing, but didn't seem to break anything.
