    Reverting to olderversion of Thunderbird ?

    I just installed Kubuntu 16.04 and with it came Thunderbird 52.1.1 .

    Mozilla admits that it has bugs.
    I'd like to go back to 45.7.0.
    Is there a way to do this?

    Thanks
    Greg

    But keep in mind that old versions of Thunderbird have publicly known vulnerabilities.

    First remove the system Thunderbird -
    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge thunderbird*
    Then go to that link and click the Thunderbird version you want. You will get a list of different OS versions. If you're running 64-bit Kubuntu, select "linux-x86_64". If 32-bit, select "linux-i686".

    You will then have a list of locales, select yours among them. Then you should be presented with a download link for the Thunderbird version you want.

    Once downloaded, extract into your home directory. Then you should be able to run Thunderbird with this command -
    Code:
    ~/thunderbird/thunderbird

    All software has bugs.

    The bugs in 45.7.0 were fixed with the release of 45.8.0, 52.0.0, 52..0.1, 52.1.0 and 52.1.1.

    What problems are you having?
