If you have error message:

Waiting for system tray to become available

Install gnome tray extension:

Upstream seems inactive, so I doubted my bug report will get any attention soon and looked for an alternative. I tried systray-x-git and it works in Plasma Wayland session, at least for current Thunderbird version 91.6.1, doing basically all I need (minimize to tray, restore window, show unread messages). Hope this helps other Plasma Wayland users.

@snack, it's worth checking upstream for that.

I just tried Birdtray in a Plasma Wayland session. I get a segfault with no other info dumped to the terminal. A fresh rebuild of Birdtray using yum didn't help. Is this expected? I know Birdtray doesn't have full Wayland support but AFAIK some basic support is there, so I didn't expect the segfault.

Here working with 91.x in a fully updated system. Try to reinstall it. If you are using yay or some other AUR helper, delete cache first.

Works here with TB 91.3.0-1. Try rebuilding Birdtray and if it still does not work then start it from command line with:

$ birdtray -l log.txt &

and check the content of log.txt for possible hints about the crash at startup.

I don't think this works with Thunderbird 91

@Ennoia, this error occurs when you have a QT program that's using an earlier library. Most QT programs are updated automatically, but some that are manually compiled have to be compiled again.

In my case I use qt5-styleplugins from the AUR, and I have to reinstall it or I get the compatibility error.
