After upgrading to Thunderbird 68.3, Birdiesync is not recognised

Post by styxman »

Hi Birdy -
I upgraded Thunderbird to 68.3 and Birdiesync to 3.2.3.3. Thunderbird does not accept Birdiesync when started (No source connected), and it does not prompt for an accept of Birdiesync as add-on.

Whan am I missing ?

- and solved.

For some reason, Thunderbird had disabled the Birdiesync extension - when enabling it (Tools->add-ons->extensions), Birdiesync connected again.

Hello John,

Yes, Thunderbird may disable BirdieSync add-on after having been updated to a new major version. So it may be necessary to enable it again (Menu / Add-ons / add-ons) or (menu Tools/Add-ons). Note that after BirdieSync has been updated and Thunderbird started a first time, it may be necessary to restart Thunderbird so that the correct compatible version of BirdieSync is loaded.

The new version of BirdieSync (3.2.3.2) should now detect if BirdieSync is add-on is disabled and display an error message when trying to synchronize.
