Know Issues with ThunderBirdI dont know everybody face this problem, so feedback appreciated.
Some times ThunderBird is not capable of updating/reinstalling an extension when it is running. You will corrupt ThunderBird installation if you try to install an extension, when it is running.
Generally this wont be a problem. And XPInstall is supposed to take care of that.
But for "QuickTools" we have "Install from URL"
and for "QuickTools TBird Options" we have modification to Tools/Option Menu.
Which are running when you try to update/reinstall the extension.
And that may cause problem.
- Disable the extension first.
- Then quit and restart ThunderBird.
- Now install new version of the extension.
- And then enable the extension and restart ThunderBird.
Still, if it corrupts installation
Try first deleting
xpicleanup.dat in Application dir
chrome.rdf in Application Chrome dir (NB: not personal profile dir)
overlayinfo dir in Application Chrome dir (NB: not personal profile dir)
*.new and *.jar of the extension in Application Chrome or personal profile dir
If all these dont work then we can we have to delete and reinstall ThunderBird.
