10.4.7 and Thunderbird

Some time during the conference, the 10.4.7 update got installed on my Powerbook, and Thunderbird hasn’t worked correctly since then. It’s a little hard to describe what happens. Some menus render as plain text instead of formatted menus. Some things don’t highlight when selected. But, most importantly, it refuses to make a connection to my mail server to retrieve my mail, which is the bit I actually care most about.

So, if you’ve emailed me in the last few days, and I haven’t responded, well, it’s because my mail client isn’t really working, and I’ve been trying to make do with elm and pine.
