I'd like to participate in the package maintenance. May I be added as a co-maintainer, please?

Can the dependency over gtk2 be replaced by gtk3 ? :)

Every update it seems that the existing profile is completely thrown out and I really don't want to duplicate 20GB of data every time there's an update so I add a select-profile to my launcher.desktop file


/opt/thunderbird-beta/thunderbird -p --no-remote% %u

For disable check for updates...

You have to create a file called policies.json

  "policies": {
    "DisableAppUpdate": true

Then, into PKGBUILD package() you have to add

  # Disable auto-updates
  install -Dm644 "${srcdir}"/policies.json -t "$pkgdir/opt/${pkgname}-${pkgver}/distribution"

Another suggestion is to simplify installation directory...

In PKGBUILD package(), you can replace each

We're up to thunderbird-70.0a1, works if applying the following to PKGBUILD

If you want to enjoy the "last" version, change :


also, if your data gets "lost" when updating, just launch daily with this command : thunderbird-nightly --ProfileManager

Thunderbird nightly is 67.0a1 now.

The setting mail.biff.show_alert disables all alerts, including the ones from incoming emails.

I set to false and app.update.silent to true and the update notifications went away, not sure if it was because of both or just the first one.
