In the interest of correct spelling, I decided to integrate CircleCode's suggested change to fix hunspell and make it required.

Chances are this is opinionated, but I think if you can afford to install Thunderbird, you can also install hunspell.

  • %u change not implemented, not sure if this is a good idea.
  • Let me know if this breaks usage with other spell checkers. I have no idea what others there are.

Also please add StartupWMClass=thunderbird to the .desktop file

if anyone is interested I updated the PKGBUILD file to the b2 build. It can be downloaded here:

FYI: I'm having an issue with crashes on Wayland with MOZ_ENABLE_WAYLAND=1 since 71.0b3 and 71.0b4. This property is helpful if you are using fractional scaling in GNOME. I have raised the issue on Mozilla's Discourse forum:

It looks like you forgot to change the package revision back to -1 on the last few releases.

Thanks for the fix! I updated the PKGBUILD and confirms that it runs on my machine.

I was having the same issue myself.

I inspected /opt/thunderbird-beta and found that thunderbird-bin was symlinked to thunderbird. However, when I downloaded the tar.bz2 I noticed that thunderbird and thunderbird-bin are two different files (one's an executable and the other is a shared library) I copied these two over and started it using thunderbird-beta and everything worked then.

EDIT: Try deleting the line "ln -sf thunderbird "$pkgdir"/opt/$_pkgname/thunderbird-bin" from the PKGBUILD.

Maintainer here, I am also getting the same issue. I am busy with work and cannot look too much into it, but in the brief moment I ran gdb, it seemed like it was stuck in an infinite loop trying to load /usr/lib/ . For the moment, I reverted back to the previous version.

Hey, hello, this next version bump does not work for me. There is no debugging info even on verbose. Just nothing happens

rko commented on 2019-05-16 13:37

Updated to 67.0b3. Just a version bump.
