  1. Thunderbird 7 finally fixed the scrolling issue in 6 when using Thinkpads (IBM UltraNav)

  2. How to select a different cipher and hash for encryption when uisng Thunderbird v7?

    How to check what cipher and hash was used when receiving incoming email in Thunderbird v7?

    I’m not the only one asking too! See here: http://getsatisfaction.com/mozilla_messaging/topics/how_to_enable_aes_256_cipher_instead_of_default_168_bit_3des_encryption

  3. Just updated (on my Mac) and now clicking Reply creates a ghost–it’s listed under Window on the Menu bar but no reply window appears on screen. This is getting tiresome. The same thing happened with the last update.
