Upgrade to ThunderBird 9 issues in 431
Been running Mozilla ThunderBird in KDE-Slax 431. I think i started with a 3.0 pet and progressively upgraded via the Help-Check for Updates menu. Anyhow things worked fine until i applied the update the other day to upgrade to ThunderBird 9. After the update, the program would not launch, and terminal returned nothing. I was able to delete my entire thunderbird folder from /mnt/home and then reinstall using a ThunderBird 8 pet i found here on the forum. This new installation installed to the /opt directory instead of /mnt/home, however all of my old accounts, emails, contacts, etc were intact since they are obviously stored elseware. I have not attempted to update to 9 from my new install of 8 again, although the results might be different now since i used a new pet and it installed to a differnt location.
