Description

7 years ago
We've just discovered that older versions of mailtweak can cause Thunderbird's display to be totally corrupt and unusable on startup if certain tweaks are turned on.

As we're now actively prompting Thunderbird 2 users, I believe we'll see more instances of this, therefore I'd like to get mailtweak on the list asap.

The bad mailtweak versions have a maxversion of 3.* which is clearly a bad version to use. I have filed a bug on the extensions mozdev site to let the author know.

The specifics:

Extension versions: 1.0pre9 and older should be blocklisted
Extension id: mail-tweak@rod.whiteley
Thunderbird versions to block in: 3.1 and above

Suggested text for web page (http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/blocklist/):

MailTweak, versions 1.0pre9 and older for Thunderbird 3.1 and above. Reason: Causes broken main windows in some configurations. Users should update MailTweak. 

Update link should point to: http://mailtweak.mozdev.org/installation.html

morgamic: I'm not sure we're still having many complaints about this, but it would be good if we could get it resolved anyway.

3.x series are no longer supported, so nothing to do here now.
